Cannoli Dip

With the way my family eats spaghetti, carbonara, pastas in general, and cannolis you'd think we had some Italian in the blood line. Nope, none. 

But that doesn't sway our love of Italian food, or Cannolis.
 My dad loves them, My Husband Loves them, I love them... Mom Kinda thinks they are ok ;)

When we lived on the Marine Base, the Commissary there sold Cannoil's on base for .25 cents each and I use to stock up on them for a treat to keep around the house.

But here, I can't find them. Well I can, but I can only find them at one Italian Restaurant and one bakery that is hardly ever open.

But... back to the Cannoli Dip... when I was looking through some of my favorite online recipe blogs, I saw this Cannoli Dip on Robin's Site Big Red Kitchen. 

I knew I had to make this for Dad and BigBear for Thanskgiving! 

I added a little milk to mine, and changed the portions a little, but it was really good, and reminded me of the cannolis that I use to get on base.
