Easy Cannoli's that are healthy

this is today's yummy from Hungry Girl. I personally do not use splenda...sugar is not that many calories. I don't like cool whip either, but some of you do..I would tweek this to my liking but its a good concept for the cones....

Holy Moly Cannoli Cones

PER SERVING (1 cannoli cone): 134 calories, 1.75g fat, 184mg sodium, 21g carbs, 0g fiber, 10.5g sugars, 6g protein -- POINTS® value 3*

You will FLIP OUT when you try our creamy, creative take on chocolate chip cannolis!!!

6 sugar cones (like the kind by Keebler)
1 cup plus 2 tbsp. fat-free ricotta cheese (or one of the alternatives below)
2/3 cup Cool Whip Free, thawed
2 1/2 tbsp. Splenda No Calorie Sweetener (granulated)
2 tbsp. mini semi-sweet chocolate chips, divided
1 tbsp. sugar-free fat-free vanilla instant pudding mix1 tbsp. powdered sugar

Place all ingredients except the cones and chocolate chips in a medium bowl. Using an electric mixer, beat on high until mixture is fully combined and fluffy. Fold in half of the chocolate chips.
Carefully transfer mixture to a large plastic bag, squeezing it down toward one bottom corner of the bag. Snip that corner off with scissors, so that you have a makeshift piping bag.
Gently squeeze the ricotta mixture into the cones, evenly distributing it among them.
Sprinkle the remaining chocolate chips evenly on top of the filling in each cone.
Eat and enjoy!
HG Alternatives! If you can't find fat-free ricotta, go for low-fat or light -- then each Cannoli Cone would have 145 calories, 4g fat, and a POINTS® value of 3*. If you can't track down low-fat or light, use part-skim ricotta -- each Cannoli Cone would then have 163 cal ories, 6g fat, and a POINTS® value of 4*. Cannoli Cones for EVERYONE!
