Healthified Cannoli

First off I want to start off by noting that I'm the ding dong that turned her oven on all the way to 425 degrees when it is 100 degrees outside.  Who does that?  Me!!! I do that.  I had this idea to make Cannoli so that it can actually be ingested without the guilt and I wanted to do it NOW!

So onto the deliciousness that is Cannoli.

Spray the underside of a mini muffin pan with a nonstick cooking spray.  Then form wonton wrappers around every other muffin form sticking each of the corners down on the tray to keep them in place.  Give them a quick spray of more nonstick cooking spray and put them in a 425 degree oven for 5-7 minutes.  Watch them close.

For the filling, chop up 1/4 cup of dark chocolate chips in a blender until they are a fine powder.  Add 3/4 cup of ricotta cheese, and 1 scoop of Vanilla Shakeology and 1 teaspoon of Vanilla.  Add a tablespoon of milk and blend.  You may need to add another Tablespoon to get it to the right consistency. 
Drop by rounded spoonful onto the formed wonton wrappers.  Enjoy.
Makes 8.

8 wonton wrappers
Nonstick cooking spray
1/4 cup Dark Chocolate chips
3/4 cup ricotta
1 scoop Vanilla Shakeology (order here)
1 tsp of Vanilla (I use Penzey's)
1-2 TBLS milk (any kind)
Form the wonton wrappers over the back of a mini muffin tin that has been sprayed with non stick cooking spray.  Bake at 425 for 5 minutes. 
Blend the chocolate chips into powder.  Add the rest of the ingredients and blend until desired consistency.
