“This is to die for!!!! All the best of a great Italian Cannoli combined with extra creamy Italian Gelato!!!! Purrrrfectly heaven!!! Serve in a bowl with wafer cookies or try it in cannoli shells, or even a sugar waffle cone!! Made for the Zaar World Tour 4 by the Cookin Cats. Modern Czechs, Italians, and Greeks see Almonds as good luck and long life--and give out the nuts at weddings When you say italian dessert 2 things come to mind: cannoli and gelato. We combined the gelato with the wonderful ingredients from the filling from cannoli: mascarpone, marashino cherries, and pcs of chocolate. Cooking time does not include the refrigeration time.”
