I have joined forces with Philadelphia Soft Cream Cheese to create what I believe to be the ULTIMATE snack. It is simple. It is super yummy. It is really pretty. AND…thanks to a sweet $0.50 off cream cheese coupon that can be used at Walmart, it is quite inexpensive! If you are within a 5 mile radius of a Walmart, then you’ll be able to see and print the coupon and be on your way to making a snack that will have EVERYONE talking!
So, are you ready for the awesome? Let’s do it!
Cream Cheese Chocolate Chip Cannoli Dip
1 (8 ounce) package Philadelphia Cream Cheese spread
1 cup heavy whipping cream
3 Tbsp plain yogurt
15 oz Ricotta cheese
2/3 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
Pour heavy whipping cream into a bowl and beat with a mixer until stiff peaks form (2-3 minutes). Set aside roughly half the mixture into a separate, smaller bowl.
To the remaining mixture add philly soft cream cheese. Mix well to combine. To make the mixing process easier, I recommend cutting the cream cheese into 8 sections. At the same time that you add the cream cheese, also add the plain yogurt.
Next, fold in the ricotta cheese. Then fold in the remaining half of the heavy whipping cream.
Now it’s time to sweeten it up! Add the 2/3 cup powdered sugar and gently fold it in. Your dip will start to look a bit glossier (and it will start to taste like the inside of a cannoli, too!).
How about some color? Fold in those delicious mini chocolate chips! Don’t use the larger chips…it will be too overwhelming when you take a bite.
To serve, sprinkle the top of your dip with more chocolate chips, and dust with a bit of powdered sugar. The perfect dipping instruments, in my opinion, are strawberries and graham crackers!
I made this recently while Tim and the girls were outside doing some chores. They were all thrilled to find this waiting for them when they came back in. It looks super fancy, but honestly, it was quite simple to put together. And the taste? Lean in a little closer and I’ll scoop some for you…
How cruel of me! I bet you could ALMOST taste it, though! Head on out to Walmart with that Philadelphia cream cheese coupon and get started making this delectable snack. You will have a new favorite dish to bring to parties and potlucks, as well as a go-to snack for your family!
