I attended a party this past weekend, and I did something that I hate to do: I brought two appetizers that I have never made before. I hate doing that! What if they are horrible? Lucky for me (and them), both were awesome! I made one sweet dip and one savory dip. This dip was super easy to make and everyone who tried it liked it. In fact, near the end of the party, there was a small group of us standing around this dip, dipping and talking, dipping and talking. If you like a good cannoli, try this dip!
1 cup ricotta
8 oz cream cheese room temperature
1 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2/3 cup mini chocolate chips
waffle cones broken
Using a stand mixer (or hand mixer + large bowl), whisk together ricotta, cream cheese, and powdered sugar on medium-high speed until smooth, about 3-5 minutes. Add in vanilla extract and whip for another 30 seconds.
Taste test the dip – if you’d like it sweeter, add more powdered sugar 2 tablespoons at a time. You can safely add another 1/2 cup of powdered sugar (8 tablespoons) without negatively impacting consistency.
Fold in mini chocolate chips, reserving some to sprinkle on top for decoration if desired.
Serve dip immediately with broken waffle cones for dipping.
