Chocolate sauce


1.Make chocolate sauce: Heat cream in a small saucepan until almost boiling; remove from heat. Add chocolate, whisk until smooth.
2.Beat vanilla and cream in a small bowl with an electric mixer until firm peaks form; stir in 150g of the brittle.
3.Fit a large piping bag with a large plain tube; fill with brittle cream. Pipe filling into cannoli shells; dust with sifted icing sugar. Serve cannoli with chocolate sauce and remaining brittle.

Peanut brittle is available from major supermarkets and confectionery stores. If you don’t have a piping bag, simply use a ziptop bag; fill bag with cream mixture, twist and snip a 1cm (½-inch) hole from one corner. For a more traditional filling, process 150g (4½ ounces) ricotta until smooth; beat ½ cup pouring cream until soft peaks form. Gently fold ricotta, cream and brittle together until combined.
