“I think this is one of the best cannoli that I have ever had! The original recipe calls for fat-free ricotta, but I used part skim. Also, the original recipe calls for 2 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips in the filling and 1/2 cups for melting. Instead, I used 2/3 cups mini semisweet chocolate chips in the filling, and I did not really think it was necessary to drizzle the chocolate on topr. Last, I think it is a good idea to chill the filling for at least an hour to let the flavors marry.”

  2. To assemble, spoon the filling into the cannoli shells. Melt the remaining chips and drizzle each cannoli with the melted chocolate.
