|100g||minced candied orange peel|
|100g||grated dark chocolate|
|1||packed Sicilian cannoli shells|
|icing sugar, for dusting|
|1||To make the cannoli mixture, scoop the Ricotta into a large mixing bowl. Using a large wooden mixing spoon, stir in caster sugar, candied fruit and chocolate. The Strega is optional, but just be sure not to add too much; otherwise filling will run in the cannoli shells.|
|2||Pipe or spoon the Ricotta filling into the shells and place on a serving dish. Dust with icing sugar just prior to serving.|
|3||Tip: It is best to create the mixture and store overnight so that the fruit, chocolate and liqueur flavours have time to permeate the ricotta.|
