Chocolate Orange Cannoli Dip

With two toddlers, it’s hard for Jorge and I to find time to go on actual date nights. By the time the weekend rolls around, we are exhausted from the week and just want to relax at home after we get the girls down for the night. 

Sometimes this means we catch up on our shows on the DVR while vegging out on the couch together. When we are feeling fancy, we like to have the neighbors over for a double date game night with lots of snacks to munch on.

Cannoli Dip Is Such An Easy Dessert For Game Night

Sometimes we even have themes – and last weekend was Italian Date Night. We had bruschetta, BON APPÉTIT Mozzarella & Pesto Pizza, a little side salad with arugula and truffle oil, and this Chocolate Orange Cannoli Dip. We also had a few bottles of Prosecco, but I swear it’s only because it was “Italian date night”. ;-)

I don’t like to have too difficult of a menu on a date night in — I want to relax too! So having a BON APPÉTIT pizza in the freezer to pull out and incorporate into a meal is a huge help. I love how fresh the tomatoes taste on the Mozzarella & Pesto Pizza and that it only takes about 12 minutes to bake. Yay, thin crust!

This Chocolate Orange Cannoli Dip is a spin on my favorite Cannoli Cheesecake. It’s one of my favorites, but on an easy date night in, I don’t want to worry about baking and cooling a cheesecake.

This dip comes together in 10 minutes and the flavors are so delicious! Just like in the Cannoli Cheesecake, I decided to highlight orange and chocolate together. The orange zest gives it the perfect light flavor…and of course you can never go wrong with chocolate! Especially on date night. ;-)

    OMG! I made this to take to a holiday party a few weeks ago. Everyone raved about it. So yummy. It made a TON! Thanks so much for making me look slightly more than just competent in the kitchen.

    I love this! My boyfriend and I don’t make nearly enough time for our relationship between work, school and other commitments, a date night is definitely in order, and so is this cannoli dip.

    This may be the most stunning dip EVER. Also, my husband is a canolli fanatic and would love me forever if I made this for him (well… hopefully he’ll love me forever anyway). His birthday is coming up, so this is definitely happening!

    Canoli dip? Holy cow I would LOVE this! I could wind down with a glass of wine and this dip. It’s lovely.

    This dip looks so good! The date night sounds so fun! It’s so important to de-stress after a hectic week! I like how this is like a deconstructed cannoli with the waffle cookies! I cannot wait to make this!!!

    Mmm this canolli dip looks just perfect! I love the chocolate and orange combo. What a fantastic sweet treat!
