Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I'm not much of a baker, but I love cannolis, so I had to try this. Not licking the bowl clean after making the "filling" was real hard to resist. and it was incredible! Couldn't wait to share it with the family. Going to try to make them into cupcakes next, for a bake sale!

Everyone seems to be unanimous in their liking for this particular version of poke cake. I haven't had a good cannoli in a while, since there's only a couple of bakeries around here that can do a good job with them. This looks like a wonderfully delicious substitute the next time I want a cannoli. Poke cakes are one of my favorite things to make, but I never imagined you could mimic a cannoli with one.

I'm not usually interested in "poke cakes", but I just couldn't resist trying a "Cannoli Poke Cake" recipe. I'm laughing as I write this, because it really was easy to make, and surprisingly tasted like a Cannoli. It has all the basic ingredients of a cannoli ricotta cheese, mascarpone cheese, a touch of cinnamon, mini chocolate chips, so why wouldn't it? All that's missing is the shell, but it tastes so good it doesn't matter.

I come from a big family of Italians, and we all love a good cannoli. However, it is sort of an "all day" event to make a lot of them around the holidays. Frying the shells takes an extra step and a lot of mess, and if you make them too far ahead of time, the filling gets too thick and the shells will begin to soften. This is a great way to get your cannoli fix without having to spend a lot of time. The perfect end to an Italian style dinner!

this looks like such a sweet wonderful dessert. I have to make it for some special occasion, so I don't end up eating half of it myself. Love poke cake recipes!

My family loves cannolis but I seldom buy them because I'm nervous the'll get soggy too quickly. I like the idea of a poke cake and this seems easy enough. Has anyone made the cake without adding the sweetened condensed milk into the icing as the blogger suggested? I'm wondering if too much milk in the icing would cause it to be runny. I'd like to try this out for my next book club meeting.

This would be a big hit at any party, and I agree with Emily Michelle that this looks way less intimidating than making cannoli!

My mom loves a good cannoli, so I will definitely need to make this cake for her.

Cannoli are so intimidating to make. This looks like an easy way to enjoy a classic!

I like Cannoli(s) however this dish is missing the exterior crunchy part so I added an extra shell.

My husband is Italian he LOVES cannolis and cake...this will send him to the moon!!!
