Last weekend we had a big celebration. I’m not talking about a large group of people…I’m talking about many holidays in one day.

You see, my son was home for the week…and he will be out of the country for his birthday, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years. The first time we won’t be together for the holidays.

So, I made the holidays last week. We celebrated his birthday (with a pumpkin pie)….we ate a huge Thanksgiving dinner (with his favorite hashbrown casserole)…we enjoyed egg nog around the Christmas tree and opened presents…and then we cheered for New Years with champagne and confetti poppers.

One of the treats we enjoyed was the Cannoli Dip. And by “enjoyed” I mean, Demolished. Destroyed. Devoured.

I had first tried it earlier this year at a family party. And I knew I would have to recreate this fantastic dip!

My family is a huge fan of our homemade cannolis. I knew this would be a hit.

I used cinnamon pita chips as dippers, as well as broken waffle cones.

Actually, I bought the waffle bowls and broke those into large pieces, they worked out perfect!

If you can find the bowls, cones will work just fine too! Or buy some cannoli shells, that would be tasty too! ENJOY!
