The Perfect Family Night In


Since I am away at school for most of the year, I try to spend as much time with my family when I’m home. I thought it would be fun (and super easy) to have a family night where we made cannolis! We all had a lot of fun comparing our cannolis, and stuffing as many chocolate chips inside as we could.

If you’re looking for something quick and fun to do with the fam, do this. It is so simple, and so delicious.

All you need is:

– Ricotta Cheese (fresh or in container)

– Sugar

– Chocolate Chips

– Powdered Sugar

– Cannoli Shells (which can be pre-ordered from the bakery of most supermarkets/ or are found already made in the bakery section)

– Paper bowls & spoons

To make it a fun family activity you: 

– Lay the shells out on the table

– Put a small bowl of sugar and chocolate chips on the table

– Give everyone in your family their own bowl to make their own filling and a plate to put the cannoli shell


1. Place 2-3 scoops of ricotta cheese in your bowl

2. Add sugar to taste (usually 1-2 spoonfuls)

3. Add as many chocolate chips as you want (I used dark chocolate chips)

4. (Optional) Add a drop of vanilla extract

5. Stuff the inside of your cannoli shell using your spoon

6. Add some chocolate chips at the ends to make it look official

7. Sprinkle some powder sugar on top
