  • 1 8-ounce package mascarpone cheese, softened
  • 1 can LUCKY LEAF® Premium Cherry Fruit Filling & Topping
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon coconut extract, optional
  • 1/2 cup toasted coconut flakes (see tips)
  • 6 ounces white chocolate, squares or chips
  • 10 unfilled cannoli shells
  • powdered sugar for dusting


  1. Step 1
    In a bowl, using an electric mixer, beat mascarpone and 1 cup fruit filling until well combined and smooth.

  2. Step 2
    Stir in remaining fruit filling, vanilla extract and coconut extract. Cover; refrigerate while making cannoli shells.

  3. Step 3
    Place coconut flakes in a small bowl.

  4. Step 4
    In a medium microwaveable bowl, microwave chocolate until melted, about 1 minute. Stir until completely smooth. Immediately (working quickly), dip both ends of a cannoli shell in the white chocolate, then in the coconut flakes. Repeat on all shells and then place on a rimmed baking sheet; refrigerate until chocolate is completely set.

  5. Step 5
    Spoon cherry filling mixture into a piping bag; snip tip large enough for cherries to pass through. (Alternatively, use a large resealable bag; seal and snip off one corner.) Carefully, fill each cannoli shell completely with cherry filling.

  6. Step 6
    Arrange cannolis on a decorative platter and dust with powdered sugar to serve.


Toast coconut on a skillet over medium heat, shaking pan occasionally, until lightly toasted.
