CANNOLI FILLING

Ingredients:
32 ounces Ricotta cheese (full fat whey cheese)
10 ounces Sugar
16 ounces Cream Cheese - cold
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
1/4 tsp. Ground Cinnamon
Mini chocolate chips
Minced candied fruit
Before beginning, it is a good idea to drain the Ricotta Cheese overnight in the refrigerator to remove excess water.  The next day, cream together the Sugar and Cream Cheese until smooth, then add the Ricotta Cheese, Vanilla, and Cinnamon.  Blend very well.  Stir in the chocolate chips or candied fruit.  Chill for 1 hour.
