Cherry Cannoli Cones

Saturday, May 4, 2013

Recently, The Pampered Chef sent me a box full of goodies. They asked me to make a pink recipe in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. I decided to make these Cherry Cannoli Cones. Aren't they cute? They also taste great.

This is a really simple recipe and doesn't require many ingredients. I drained the ricotta cheese overnight so it wasn't too wet. I sifted some powdered sugar, added some chopped cherries and a little cherry juice from the jar. Voila! Cannoli filling!

Instead of making cannoli shells, I used sugar cones. I decorated the tops of the cones with some candy melts and sprinkles. You could also use mini chocolate chips or chopped almonds. These were so much fun to make and even more fun to eat!

You can make the filling ahead of time and store it in the refrigerator until you are ready to eat the cannolis. Make sure to fill the cones right before you eat them so they don't get soggy.

I made double duty out of the Stainless Mesh Colanders. I stained the ricotta in them and then used it as a sifter for the powdered sugar.

I love these silicone prep bowls! My new favorite Pampered Chef product!



Cherry Cannoli Cones
(Printable Recipe)


24oz whole fat ricotta
1 cup powdered sugar, sifted
1 Tbsp cherry juice
1 tsp almond extract
1/4 cup chopped cherries

candy melts
sprinkles
12 ice cream sugar cones

Line a strainer with a paper towel and place ricotta cheese inside. Place strainer over bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Place in the refrigerator overnight. When ready to use, squeeze out any excess liquid.  Place ricotta in a large mixing bowl and add powdered sugar, chopped cherries, cherry juice and almond extract. Mix well.

To prepare the cones, melt candy melts in a small bowl according to package directions. Pour sprinkles into another small bowl. Dip sugar cone tops into the candy melts and then into the sprinkles. Set aside to set.

Right before serving, fill a pastry bag or ziplock bag with cherry filling, snip off the end and pipe filling into the cones. Enjoy!

  66. I once had the complete Pampered Chef cookware set. I totally loved it. Right now, I am missing the steamer pot and 2 covered skillets because I left them unattended on the stove and ruined them. (This happened during the time when my Alzheimer's-stricken mother was living with us, and I had to leaved the stove to attend to her.) Sure would love to get an entire new set of Pampered Chef cookware someday...sigh. Anyway, those are my favorites products, hands down.

    I like everything that Pampered Chef has, but can't afford most of it. But, I love their little paring knife. It's the perfect size and stays sharp.

  87. if I could only choose one, it has to be my small bar pan stone. fits in the toaster oven perfectly, so it gets a lot of use... but I also love my other baking stones, the garlic press, the chopper, my bamboo tongs, the pitcher with the mixer thing in it, the press and seal sandwich thing... I could go on (even though I can't remember a lot of the correct names! ha!). I love pampered chef so much that I had a party for my bridal shower! :)
