Cannoli Dip …

Food and I have a crazy relationship. When I taste something amazing, I go weak in the knees. Yes, I have a love affair with food :)

Have you tried a cannoli before? If not, I dare say you are missing out! They are spectacular! A crispy outside.. and that interior… YUM! Then it dawned on me, how perfect would it be to make a dip out of the insides!?! And it was just that… perfect.

I browsed the internet and found it had been done before, a couple times in fact. I played around with some recipes and found what I think to be the perfect recipe. I adapted a recipe from Cooking Classy and the end result is PERFECTION! I found some waffle crisp cookies, that resemble a waffle cone down the cookie aisle at my grocery store. They were fantastic with this dip and really made the cannoli feel complete. You can dip whatever you would like to though!

This would be a hit at your next get together!

Cannoli Dip... This dip is INCREDIBLE! It literally tastes just like a cannoli and is SO simple to make!
