Cannoli Cheesecake

This post is sponsored by Galbani Italian Cheese, but all opinions are my own.

This Cannoli Cheesecake is made with a mix of ricotta and mascarpone cheese for a cheesecake that truly tastes like the classic Italian dessert – with a cheesecake twist! It has a touch of cinnamon and mini chocolate chips for a truly delicious treat!

Sometimes I think I should’ve been born Italian, but sadly I don’t have an Italian background at all. My maiden name is actually French and so were my great-grandparents. However, if there’s a couple desserts I love, it’s cannoli and tiramisu. With cannoli, there’s just something about the combination of ricotta and mascarpone cheeses that has the best flavor and such a fun texture. Then with some vanilla, cinnamon and a few mini chocolate chips, it’s heaven! Such a subtly amazing flavor.

If you’ve been around this blog long enough, you’ve surely seen my Cannoli Poke Cake, Cannoli Layer Cake, Cannoli Icebox Cake, Tiramisu Cupcakes and Pumpkin Tiramisu Layer Cake. The Cannoli Poke Cake is where I truly fell in love and ever since then, I’ve been turning the classic Italian dessert into just about every dessert variation I can think of. 🙂
