First off, I have to say a big thank you to DaVinci Wine for sponsoring this post!

Without sampling their DaVinci Chianti, I would have never dreamed up these dreamy (and creamy!) cannoli parfaits!

If you love traditional cannoli, then you have to try these parfaits! I think they are easier to make as well since there is no piping!

I used mini cannoli shells but feel free to use regular sized, you are just crushing them up anyway!

My shells were purchases from a bakery that sells cannoli but you find them easily here!

This  easy cannoli filling is so good you won’t miss making a traditional cannoli!

The parfaits are light and creamy, a nice contrast to the robust Chianti wine.

Does cannoli have mascarpone in it?

Traditional cannoli filling does not have mascarpone cheese. I added it to this parfait because I wanted the filling to be extra creamy and decadent.

You could go crazy with these. This to me is a base recipe to add in so many additions: fresh raspberries, pistachios, or hazelnuts!

    Can you make these the night before?

  4. You can make the separate components, then assemble them before serving so it doesn’t become soggy.
