Why not just make it....Buy ricotta cheese and add the chocolate chunks or chips...Just a thought!!

I agree with kiddiekakes...why not just make your own, i'm sure you could find a great recipe online and you may come out cheaper. ricotta cheese is always in sale in my area.

Yep its easy to make...they sell a super smooth and creamy type ricotta that helps make it really yummy, and then just powdered sugar and vanilla and mini chocolate chips!

Has anyone ever seen store-bought cannoli filling? I've only ever seen it sold in high volumes, for bakery use.

Just and FYI....Walmart and Sam's sells a kit containing the shells and cannoli filling. I do believe Sam's sells just the filling. I have never had it so I can't vouch for it's taste. Being a FBI (full blooded Italian, 2nd gen) I make my own.

i don't think my recipe is real or anything, but i usually make it with a very dry ricotta, conf. sugar, orange zest and almonds... people seem to like it though!

q2wheels... how do you make yours (if it's not a family secret anyways)... i have always wondered what it is traditionally made with!
