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.
