Cannoli Cream Puffs

Cannoli Cream Puffs

Seriously. Cannoli AND cream puffs together at once? Does it get any better? These are two of my all time favorite desserts combined into one unbelievably decadent dessert. You’ll lose all self control with these things. Anytime I make cannoli anything I have the hardest time limiting myself. When it comes to cannoli, it’s almost as if there can be no limits. The heavenly sweetened ricotta, combined with the irresistibly creamy mascarpone makes for a filling like none other. It’s so simple yet so complexly enticing.
