I really enjoy catering events especially when the event has a gluten free focus. I was asked to host a gf birthday and I was excited to creat some fun recipes that I knew everyone would enjoy. The best part of a cannoli is the creamy sweet filling so I decided a fun way to make this classic gf and a easy crowd pleaser was to make it into a dish for dipping.
2 Cup Ricotta Cheese
8 oz Mascapon Cheese
1/2 Tbs Vanilla Extract
1 Cup Mini Chocolate Chips
1 Cup Powder Sugar
1 Pinch of Salt
Combine all the cheese, vanilla and salt in bowl and mixing together. If you have a hand food insure or blender use it to help combine ingredients well. Add cheese mix back to bowl and slowly add powder sugar slowly while mixing by hand. Mixture will begin to firm up. Last add chocolate chips and mix it all together. Place in an air tight container and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. The mix will firm up a lot more once cooled.
Serve with strawberries, gf cookies or rice cakes and gluten free lady fingers.
