“I found this recipe online, and it is important to note that cannoli shells are not used, but instead tortillas. I think that this recipe would be nice with cannoli shells, and will try it out that way, and bake them.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oil, moderately hot, about 190c.
  2. Roll up tortillas loosely and fasten with a wooden toothpick to create a shell, form so hollow in centre (like a brandy snap) then fry a few at a time until they are golden brown.
  3. Mix cinnamon and sugar.
  4. Mix together ricotta and jam.
  5. While shells are still warm roll in cinnamon sugar , holding one of the ends, dip in melted chocolate and roll in finely diced nut pieces.
  6. Fill the cannolis with the ricotta jam mixture.
  7. These are best filled with a pastry bag. But a table knife, heaped with mixture and slid in will work.
  8. Dip and roll the other end in chocolate and nuts.
  9. Add you favorite topping.
