~Cinema Paradiso...Week-End

Happy Week-end Bloggers. School has been keeping me super busy and has kept me away from you. I will try to make it up t you with a week-end movie & a yummy treat. So..... Cinema Paradiso (1988) .... A filmmaker recalls his childhood, when he fell in love with the movies at his village's theater and formed a deep friendship with the theater's projectionist. Cinema Cannolis.... Rachael Ray


  • 3 cup(s) (whole-milk) ricotta cheese
  • zest of 1 orange
  • 1/4 cup(s) (superfine) sugar, use regular sugar if unavailable
  • 8  sugar cones
  • 1 cup(s) mini chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup(s) confectioners' sugar, in a sieve or sugar shaker
  1. In a bowl, combine the ricotta, orange zest and superfine sugar. Transfer mixture to a pastry bag or a resealable plastic bag, snipping the corner off to create a homemade pastry bag.
  2. Squeeze the ricotta mixture into each of the sugar cones, filling them all the way until the mixture just bulges out of the cone.
  3. Arrange the mini chocolate chips in a small, shallow plate or bowl. Sprinkle the cones with the confectioners� sugar, if you like, then dip the exposed ricotta portion of the cone into the mini chocolate chips.
