It’s been a while since my last bacon post, but magically, like a gift from heaven (aka tablespoon.com), this recipe fell into my lap: Bacon. Peanut butter. Cannoli.
Food porn time:
- 6 slices bacon
- 1/4 cup full fat ricotta cheese
- 1/2 banana, mashed
- 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
- 1 tablespoon creamy peanut butter
- 1 tablespoon mini chocolate chips
Take six cannoli forms and six strips of bacon. Wrap one slice of bacon tightly around one form, overlapping the edges as you go. You’ll end up with about three inches of scrumptiousness wrapped around when you’re done. Pop ’em in the oven (375ºF). Crispify them, then let that business cool. Gently slide the bacon off the cannoli form while keeping its shape. Don’t crunch it and screw it up.
While the bacon is baconing, mix together the ricotta, banana, powdered sugar, and peanut butter until smooth and creamy. Spoon the mixture into a piping bag and snip off the end. Pipe the mixture into the bacon tubes. Gently press the mini chocolate chips into the ends of the filling. Toss ’em in the fridge.
I want these in my life. Like now.
