Calling all cannoli fans! This cannoli cream can be served in a variety of different ways from filling your favorite cannoli shells to these adorable little disposable cups. I adore any recipe that can be prepared ahead of time and this recipe fits the bill. Everyone will be swooning over these sweet little decadent, relatively lower fat dessert. These can also be topped with fresh berries, shaved chocolate or chocolate chips.
