Colorful Cannoli Dip for New Years




I will probably say this every year, but I cannot believe that another year has come and is almost gone. I think that time has sped up since I started having kids. With that said, 2013 has been a great year for both myself and all my loved ones. I learned a lot bout myself and learned to be a bit more forgiving and gentle with myself. Especially in regards to how I parent my children.

For the past few years, any celebration that used to exist in my life (clubs, up all night and very questionable behaviors)  has been replaced with quiet nights on the couch with my husband, while the kids are nestled in their beds. Typically I would be in bed before the ball even dropped.  But now that the kids are a "bit" older, this year we are venturing out for New Years to a friend's party.

It should be fun and of course I will need to bring something! I actually made this cannoli dip for my son's first birthday and it was a stellar hit, but I always felt that the dippers bit needed adjusting. I used sugar cookies and assorted graham crackers, but felt that they didn't pair up as nicely as I would have liked them. So for this fun and festive version I decided to use pieces of sugar cones, which pairs perfectly with this dip! At some point I will take the time to develop a good sugar cone recipe, but for now any old store bought version will do the job!




This is what you need......
