Have you ever met someone that doesn’t enjoy a cannoli? Especially coming from New Jersey.

We are full of amazing bakeries that serve the best and freshest pastries.

If you head to an Italian restaurant for dinner, you almost always order the cannolis for dessert.

And let’s not forget a good Jersey diner. The display of desserts hit you right when you walk in and that’s really all you think about through your meal.

And now there are different ways to enjoy this delicious dessert.

Your local supermarket sells cannoli dip! And a trend for weddings is to have a cannoli cake. Half of my wedding cake was cannoli and my guests loved it.

So it sounds like the perfect dessert for your holiday gatherings, right?

And no one is expecting you to make cannoli from scratch. You have enough to prep between the Feast of the Seven Fishes and Christmas dinner.

Heading to a bakery and ordering a platter of cannoli is just fine.
