If you would like your strawberries to stand up, cut a small slice off of the bottom of each berry. Do not cut too much off or your filling will come out from the bottom. This recipe may be halved or doubled, depending on the number of servings needed.
  • ¾ cup (6.60 ounces) mascarpone cheese
  • ⅓ cup (3.05 ounces) heavy whipping cream
  • ¼ cup (1.25 ounces) confectioners sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 6 tablespoons (2.55 ounces) miniature chocolate chips
  • 2 quarts strawberries
  1. Place the mascarpone, cream, confectioners sugar and vanilla into a large mixing bowl. Beat until the mixture is stiff. Remove from the mixer and fold in the chocolate chips.
  2. Transfer the filling to a gallon size plastic freezer bag. Seal and refrigerate for a few hours.
  3. Wash and dry the strawberries. Cut off the stems and carefully cut out the center of each strawberry. Dry the inside and cut side completely before filling.
  4. Cut an opening in one of the bottom corners of the plastic bag. Squeeze the cannoli cream filling into each strawberry, extending it out over the top.
  5. Refrigerate until serving, up to 4 hours.
