After combining all of the ingredients together, roll into a ball. Flour your surface and place the dough on top.

How to Make Canolli Chips

Roll out the dough with a rolling pin until it is 1/8” thick. Mark out triangles and cut using a pizza cutter. Set aside.

Cannoli Chips for Nachos

Heat peanut oil to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Place the cannoli “chips” in the oil. Fry on one side for 3 minutes and flip to the other side until the dough begins to bubble and gets a little crusty. Set on a cooling rack to drain out the excess oil.

Once the chips are cooled, dip the ends into melted semi-sweet chocolate. Chop pistachio nuts and sprinkle them on the chocolate covered cannoli nachos for garnish.

Unique Nachos Recipe

Dip the rim of the bowl in chocolate like you would a margarita glass and sprinkle crushed pistachios on top for garnish. Fill your bowl with the dip and spread out the nacho chips. If you follow this and other holy cannoli recipes, your customers and guests will love the exciting new flavors. Enjoy!
