Step 1
Mark as Complete

Prepare the dough melting together flour, powdered sugar, powdered cocoa, 1 egg, lard, a pinch of salt, one teaspoon of vinegar and one teaspoon marsala, then put the mixture into the fridge for an hour. The dough needs to be solid and slightly elastic!

Step 2

Mix the ricotta (you can use an electric mixer!), that must be well downed, with sugar and put it in the fridge, covered with film. After an hour, you can add chocolate chips!

Step 3

Work the dough to make it thin, then cut it with a round cookie cutter and roll around a tube, to get the classical cannoli’s shape we want.

(If you do not have any round cookie cutter and the cannoli tubes, feel free to grab one from Amazon!)

Step 4

Warm up the lard into a pot. At the same time use the tubes to create the shells for the cannolo, giving them the classic shape. Once they get golden, take them off and let cool down. Careful! Those tubes get very, very hot!

Step 5

Remove the waffles from the tubes and fill them with the ricotta, if you want you can use a pastry bag!

Step 6
