Cannoli Cream Dessert!

Cannoli Cream Dessert

With Valentine's Day approaching fast, I decided to share with you this simple and elegant dessert recipe.
I love to make desserts that look fancy but are easy and delicious! That's how I came up with this next recipe called 'Cannoli Cream Dessert'. I made it for my husband, on Valentine's Day, a few years ago....he was very impressed! 

My recipe was recently featured on this food blog called 'Leanne Bakes' ...She's a very creative and talented cook! Stop by her blog and drool over some of her recipes!

1 cup part skim ricotta cheese 
1/4 cup confectioners sugar 
1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. pure almond extract
1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs
2 Tbls. melted butter
1/4 cup chopped canned peaches or other fruit of your choice                                                 
2 Tbls. shredded semi sweet chocolate

In a medium size bowl mix together first 4 ingredients til smooth.
In a separate bowl mix together graham cracker crumbs and melted butter.
Take 2 wine glasses or other fluted stemware and place 1/4 of the crumb mixture in the bottom of each glass making a well in the center.
Add 1/4 the cannoli cream mixture on top. Repeat this one more time.
Garnish with chopped fruit and shredded chocolate. Chill til ready to serve.

Makes 2 servings
So make a nice candle light dinner for your sweetheart and serve him this sweet treat for dessert! Enjoy!

    1. Hi Christie! Thank you so much! I would love to share it on the link party! Yes, I'm on G+

    2. Instead of graham crackers, how about using crushed cannoli shells? Make it more authentic!

    3. I love that idea! I just don't know if it would be easy to find the cannoli shells...but I will be looking for them! Thanks! =D

    4. You can buy the shells in a bakery or a grocery store that has a bakery..
