A classic Italian favorite, cannoli gets a light update here that’s as sweet as ever. You can find prebaked mini whole-wheat phyllo shells in the refrigerator section of most supermarkets.
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Chill Time: 2 hours
Makes 30 tartlets


• 2 cups part-skim ricotta cheese
• 1/4 cup granular sugar substitute
• 4 ounces bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped
• Pinch of ground cinnamon
• 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
• 2 boxes mini whole-wheat phyllo shells (15 shells each)
• 1/4 cup finely chopped unsalted pistachio nuts

Stir together ricotta, sugar substitute, chocolate, cinnamon, and vanilla in a medium bowl until well combined. Chill, covered, until ready to prepare tartlets.

No more than 2 hours before serving, fill mini phyllo shells with about 1 tablespoon ricotta filling. Sprinkle each tartlet evenly with pistachios and refrigerate until ready to serve.

Make-Ahead: The ricotta filling can be made up to 1 day in advance and refrigerated in a covered container. Tartlets can be filled up to 2 hours ahead of serving and refrigerated, lightly covered, until ready to serve.
