If you're a fan of the traditional fried cannoli cream desserts, then this homemade dip made for fruits is something you simply must try. The snack is an innovative new take on the popular pastry treat by transforming the flavors and aesthetic into a dip.

Cannolis are a popular Italian dessert made from a cylinder shaped deep fried pastery that is then filled with a rich vanilla cream topped with chocolate chips and sometimes nuts depending on the variation. This dip recreates all those flavors into a snack that pairs well with fresh fruit. The dip is made from ricotta cheese mixed with powdered sugar, chocolate chips and chopped pistachios to recreate the popular cannoli filling. Then dip fruits of your choice -- like strawberries and pineapple -- into the dip and enjoy.
