I have never made Cannoli filling... is the 4 teaspoons nut-flavored liqueur and 1/2 cup chopped pistachios necessary? If I wanted to do chocolate chips rather than pistachios, what would you use (if anything) instead of the nut-flavored liqueur?
lwidelec - in case you don't get a reply from the OP, I make cannoli filling all the time and I use mini choc chips and a bit of orange zest to favor mine, no nuts or liqueur. It all depends on what you like!
the recipes ingredients has 4oz of melted chocolate but the instructions don't mention where to use it. Is it cocoa powder OR melted chocolate? If both is needed, I assume it should be added to the butter mixture before the flour goes in. can someone confirm this?
this recipe sounds delicious. . . i am making cupcakes and was wondering if i could use the cannoli cream as an icing instead of filling. will it be too runny or will it be stiff enough? thanks
I too was wondering about the 4 oz of melted chocolate. I made the cake without it and it was great but would like to know why it is listed, is it suppose to be used?
Can I use that for a wedding cake covered with fondant? or have to be refrigerated? thank you, Juliana
