Double Chocolate Cannoli Skinny Dip

When I was a teen, I loved going to Reading Terminal Market with my Mom.  We'd load up on fresh meats and produce, then we'd have lunch.  We'd always grab dessert before going home, too!  My favorite were the chocolate cannoli from one of the bakery counters!  YUM!

Only once since those trips to the market was I able to find another bakery that sold chocolate cannolis.  In fact, it's rare when I see regular cannoli these days.

After seeing a bunch of recipes for Cannoli Dip all over Pinterest, I knew I wanted to give it a try!  Except, I knew I wanted to make Chocolate Cannoli Dip!  While this dip isn't nearly as decadent as the delicious filling of the cannoli I'd get while out shopping with my Mom, it's still a great treat.  Using fat free ingredients makes this a delicious low PointsPlus Value treat!

Double Chocolate Cannoli Skinny Dip 
          adapted from: Skinny Chocolate Chip Cannoli Dip
          serves 10-20

  • 7 1/2 oz. Fat Free ricotta cheese 
  • 2/3 c. Plain Fat Free Greek Yogurt
  • 4 oz. Fat Free whipped topping
  • 2 Tbs. Confectioners' Sugar
  • 1/2 c. mini chocolate chips (I used slightly less) 
  • 6 tsp. unsweetened cocoa powder 
  • Additional mini chocolate chips for garnish (optional) 
  • In a mixing bowl, stir together the ricotta cheese and yogurt.  
  • Add the whipped topping and confectioners' sugar and mix by hand until well-combined.  
  • Add the mini chocolate chips.  
  • Once the above ingredients are combined, mix in the cocoa powder until completely incorporated.  
  • Chill for at least an hour before serving. 
  • I used slightly less than 1/2 cup. mini chocolate chips, but still counted points for the full 1/2 cup.  
  • Once I was finished mixing this together, I transferred it to another bowl for storage in the fridge.  I weighed the completed recipe and came up with 20 oz.  
  • PointsPlus Value for 1 oz = 1 point. 
  • PointsPlus Value for 2 oz = 3 points.
