  1. To make the dark chocolate mix, combine the melted chocolate with the ricotta and 1 tbsp hot water. Mix until smooth.
  2. Fold through 2 tbsp Cacao Nibs and set aside.
  3. To make the milk chocolate mix, melt 4 squares of Well Naturally Chocolate Creamy Milk in the microwave for 30 seconds and mix immediately with the ricotta.
  4. Finely chop the remaining Well Naturally Chocolate squares and fold through the ricotta mix with the soaked and drained Golden Berries, reserving 8 to decorate the cannoli ends.
  5. To assemble the cannoli, use a teaspoon to fill half a cannoli shell with the dark chocolate mixture.
    (Cook’s note: use the spoon handle to help push the mixture in the cannoli).
  6. Repeat on the other side of the cannoli with the milk chocolate mix.
  7. Decorate the end of the dark chocolate side with the remaining Cacao Nibs, and dot the end of the milk chocolate side with the reserved Golden Berries.
  8. For best results, enjoy in one day. Leaving them the cannoli for too long can cause the shells to soften.
