Candy Crunch Cannoli Dip

IMG_3788-1

This is for sure dessert snacking at it’s finest! YES, you heard me correctly.. “dessert snacking” is a thing, and if you’ve never experienced it, you must! It’s kind of like when you sit in front of the big screen, and dip bread cubs into a delicious, cold, creamy dip of some sort. In the case, you’re snacking sweet, so the same is super super fitting!! You can munch on this at a party you’re planning on hosting, or at midnight with your honey, and a spiked coffee in hand.

When you imagine the ultimate entertaining/party food this is exactly what should come to your mind. This dip is next level, inventive, colorful, and FUN!

It is everything that you love and want in a cannoli, but even more amazing because of the mini candy treasures folded inside, but it is HALF the work!  In this crazy world we all live in, with crazy lives, who doesn’t love something thats going to be a hit, as well as  knowing that it will take a fraction of prep work in the kitchen? That’s everything that everybody wants, especially when preparing for a huge bash!

In a bowl, drop in one package of 8 oz. cream cheese.

Sprinkle in one cup of powdered sugar.

 

 

Scoop in two cups of whole milk, ricotta cheese. Don’t skimp and buy low fat ladies! We’re not going to count calories with this luxurious, cheesy mixture!

Lastly, add one teaspoon of vanilla extract.

The delightful mixture! Unmixed, of course.

 

With a hand mixer, beat everything together to create a gorgeous thick and fluffy mixture. To the eye, it will almost resemble a nice silky pie filling!

All mixed together! This delectable, white glorious site will just need to be finished with our crunchy candy!

I chopped up pretzel filled chocolate coated candies, mini chocolate bars, and wafer chocolate coated candy bars

I cut them into small chunks, kind of mimicking the size of chocolate chunks that you would use for chocolate chunk cookies.

These are some what difficult to chop up with even the sharpest knife because of the pretzel ball inside of the candy coated chocolate, so you might want to use to back of the knife to smash them into small pieces before cutting.

Scrape the candy into the bowl using the side of your knife.

 

Using a rubber spatula, fold the candy into the dip to combine everything, making sure each piece of candy is scattered throughout.

I garnished our cannoli dip with some more pretty color coated chocolate candies to make it look cutesy and to give fun vibes!

I also placed in two cannoli chips to add a little extra somethin’, somethin’, and so someone can get right to digging in because you know everyone is going to dive right into this!

Even if you’re not too much into cannolis, this dip is a must try!

Look how crispy, crunchy, and sugary these little triangles are. OH MY!

These mini chips also have powdered sugar baked into them, so it makes them even more addicting!

 

Next time on the blog, I’ll be back with another snack attack, but this time, savory and very fall fabulous! Have fun sweet snacking, Diamonds xo

I have been obsessed with food photography, culinary creations, decor, and party planning since I could remember. I'm actually a gemini, and was born on June 17th 1994. So, this summer ill be alive for a quarter of a century.. which is pretty crazy to me. It reminds me though, that life doesn't slow down, and you should do whatever you are passionate about. This is why I cracked open the next chapter of my life, and decided that in my high 20's, I want to put all my love into this blog; my brand, Deep Fried Diamonds. I would be honored for you all to join my on this journey! You definitely won't want to miss out. xoxo
