No-bake desserts are the best, especially because the extra steps of pre-heating the oven and baking can be a real time-sucking hassle. And now, with the summer months right around the corner, it’s nice to have a chilled dessert on-hand. Where to start? Boy, do we have the perfect recipe for you!
This no-bake chocolate chip cannoli cheesecake recipe is not only easy to make, but it’s also sure to be yummy. Even better, it can be made as a single serving or work for a crowd. So whether you’re hosting a party of one or a gathering for many, this treat will do just the trick.
You have Deb Attinella, the blogger behind Cooking on the Front Burner, to thank for bringing this delicious dessert into your life.
Her recipe involves actual cannoli shells as the crust, ricotta and mascarpone cheeses and chocolate chips for the filling and whipped topping and pistachios to top it all off. Because the only better way to eat a cannoli than in actual cannoli form is in cheesecake form, of course!
The recipe can be used to make four mini-tarts or one big cheesecake. It must freeze for three hours before serving. And trust us — the hardest part about this recipe is waiting to eat the sweetness that’s chilling in your refrigerator.
