Chocolate Cannoli Bites






As I was browsing the baking section in my local grocery store, I noticed these interesting-looking things called Cannoli Chips.  I wasn't quite sure what to make of them.  I love cannolis, but maybe it was the inside I liked best, not the shell (yeah, right :).  I would go to different grocery stores and continue to see these Cannoli Chips.  Eventually, I broke down and bought them.  After trying one, I thought that it tasted okay, but it was kind of bland.  Then it occurred to me that my favorite Cannolis of all are the ones that are dipped in chocolate on either end.  It was just enough chocolate to add that extra pizzazz.  I tried it and, let me tell you, they were phenomenal.  The only chocolate I had was Wilton's melting discs.  But, I can see any type of chocolate working really well, including white.  Pair it with ice cream, as I have below for a really elegant treat.





Melt chocolate in the microwave, one minute on high.  Stir and 30 seconds each time after until completely melted.


Dip the wide ends into the chocolate and place on waxed paper until hardened.


Eat them as is for an excellent snack or add them to another dessert as a beautiful garnish.

  2. Lorri, I want to say Market Basket, but it could have also been at Shaws. I think I saw them at more than one store.

Strawberry Jam Shortbread Bars

I have lived in my apartment over a year and, little by little, I have been exploring the area of North Andover/Andover, MA.  The other day I read that it was the first day of the season for corn.  I waited until Ryan came home from work and we headed off to about 3 or 4 farm/farm stands.  Some were better than others.  I can imagine what they will be like in the Fall.  Our favorite was Smolak Farmsin North Andover. They had such a cute shop that had lots of specialty food items, homemade donuts and ice cream, etc..  I was able to taste  their homemade strawberry jam and I was immediately hooked.  I have been collecting different jams lately fromStonewall Kitchen, York, ME.  Those samples will get you every time.  As soon as I tasted the strawberry jam, I knew I had to get it and make a yummy dessert.  I found a recipe online from Recipe Girl, which I have adapted.  Enjoy this buttery, sweet, fruity bar.  


Chocolate Sheet Cake for a Crowd

April 20-29 is National Dance Week. I brought this cake to my kid's dance studio tonight and I think it went over pretty well.

Triple Chocolate Pound Cake

I needed a dessert for Easter dinner.  When I want to try something new, I go online.  One of my daughters loves everything chocolate so when I saw "triple chocolate" on this recipe from My Recipes, I knew that it was the one. It is the buttermilk that makes this cake so delicious, moist and chocolatey.  It seems like a lot of ingredients, but it was so easy to make.  Just a quick note.  I buy my chocolate on Amazon.  Here is the link for the bittersweet chocolate:  Callebaut 811 53.8% Dark Semi Sweet Chocolate Callets 1 lb.  You can check other product suggestions on the drop down menu above.  This would make a perfect cake to serve at home.  It would also travel very easily.   Enjoy!!
