Spiced Chai Cannolis - My Sweet Sanity

Spiced Chai Cannolis

FTC Disclosure12 daysI realized that I had not done a cannoli recipe for Christmas. Well, I did do one but that was a guest post on another blog. I haven’t done one here though and realized that totally needed to be rectified immediately. Since I also needed some more baked goods for one of the kid’s schools I decided to make some Spiced Chai Cannolis.

I have to say that up until now my Biscoff cannolis have been my favorite. Then I tried these. I now have a new favorite. These or so very, very good! I mean like you could possibly eat the bowl of filling and not even realize it. Best thing though is you can make a cup of spiced chai and enjoy them with that. Then you get double spiced chai! Seriously, if you are a chai fan then you really do need to try this.

The other great part about this is that I found a new place to get cannoli shells. Same brand I always use and at half the cost! Thank you Mariano’s (A Roundy’s store) for having such a huge selection of international foods! Now I will be able to make even more cannolis. Yay!

  1. 16 oz. ricotta cheese, drained
  2. 1/2 c. confectioner's sugar
  3. 2 1/2 tbsp. or a 1.2 oz. packet of spiced chai mix
  4. 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  5. 24 mini cannoli shells
  1. Place the drained ricotta cheese in some cheesecloth and squeeze to remove some of the excess liquid. Place the ricotta cheese in a bowl and add the sugar, spiced chai mix and vanilla. Stir until mixed well. Place filling into a pastry bag fitted with an open tip and pipe into cannoli shells. Dip the ends in some cinnamon-sugar, sprinkles or cinnamon infused sugar like I used.
  2. Refrigerate or freeze cannolis until ready to serve.

      Italian markets sell them. You can also buy them online and this last time I found them at a local grocery store chain in their international foods aisle. I use either Ferrara or Alessi brands and depending on where I get them they usually run $3-$6.

    I’ve never considered making Cannoli’s before because I’m pretty challenged in the kitchen- so glad to know there are premade shells. That makes it so much easier!

      Everyone should try making them. The shells are the hard part but now that you can buy good ones, cannolis are so very easy to make.
