Cannoli tubes are required to make these but apart from that they are pretty easy and very tasty. I have used them as a finger food dessert at parties and they are always well received.
I'm Italian and we use Powder Sugar in place of granulated in the filling, no citron, small choc. chips only & I do not like any flavoring. Granulated sugar will probably make this very watery. Do not mix items together until you are ready to fill the shells. - 06 Feb 2004 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
The shells were perfect. However, I found using powder sugar was better than regular. I didn't use the Citron as I'm not a fan of it. Next batch, I'll eliminate the chocolate as well and use fruit like is in fruit cake instead, this was the way my Grandmother used to make it. I made a full batch of the shells and resized the recipe down to a few servings for the filling. I'm told shells will stay good for up to 2 mths while filling is only good for 48 hours. - 30 Dec 2002 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Make sure you thin out the dough. Also you can use lemon peel instead of the candied citron. This is the tastiest ever! - 20 Jan 2002 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
