  • Weck or mason jars


  • 2 cups ricotta
  • 1 cup confectioner's sugar sifted
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp allspice
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • cup chocolate shavings plus more for garnish
  • cup cannoli shells or chips crushed


  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk ricotta until smooth. Add sifted sugar, cinnamon, and allspice, whisk until combined and set aside.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, whip heavy cream until stiff peaks form. 
  • Add whipped cream to ricotta and fold until just mixed. Carefully stir in ⅓ cup of chocolate shavings.
  • Layer the base of your small jars (or one larger container) with an equal mix of crushed cannoli shells or chips and shaved chocolate, reserving some as garnish. Fill jars almost to the top with cannoli cream. Garnish with more crushed cannoli chips and chocolate. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
