Wanna make a kickass vegan cannoli without all the fuss of making your own shells? Well, friend, your pastry prayers have been answered. We’re making Vegan Cannoli Cones!

Let me start by saying this post was originally meant to be an ice cream recipe.

Needless to say, the ice cream recipe was a bust. However, what we did notice about one particular batch of “failed” ice cream was that it was a dead-on match for cannoli filling. 😍

But of course, not wanting to go through the mess of figuring out how to make homemade cannoli shells or take yet another trip to the grocery store, we thought…

Ice cream cones kinda taste like baked cannoli shells, right?

When we searched for this seductive combination on Pinterest, we learned that we were not the first to think this. In fact, the cannoli cone has already become something of a Pinterest miracle.

However, we hadn’t yet seen one made vegan.

And thus, out of complete and total necessity, this vegan cannoli cone recipe was born. 😁

It’s easier than you think!

The one great thing about these vegan cannoli cones (besides how awesome they taste) is they’re SO easy to make. 

It’s one of those scenarios where you really only have to know how to use a blender or food processor in order to make this recipe. And maybe a spoon. The fancy-pants piping is 100% optional. 😉

But if you DO wanna get fancy with the piping, we highly recommend stocking your kitchen with a cake decorating kit like this. We are just starting to experiment with ours, and if this recipe is any indication, we will be using it a LOT!

The Magic Ingredient

Seven of the eight ingredients in the vegan cannoli filling are easy-to-find items you probably have in your kitchen right now, but there is one special *magic* ingredient, if you will. That ingredient, my friends, is cocoa butter. 😍 😍

For those of you who don’t yet know, cocoa butter is the fat extracted from the cocoa bean. It’s used to make everything from chocolate (HELLO, WE LOVE YOU ALREADY) to moisturizing skin and hair care products. 

Cocoa butter is what adds all that decadent white chocolate flavor, luxurious texture, and also enables these vegan cannoli cones to hold their beautiful shape out of the fridge for several hours. 

You may or may not find this stuff at your local grocery store, but it’s incredibly easy to purchase on Amazon: We went with the 1-pound bag of this brand here.

One pound is actually a lot more cocoa butter than I realized, but that’s okay. I’ve been finding new uses for it every day (like this white chocolate fudge + this blender latte!).

Or, you can just feel free to make these vegan cannoli cones over and over and over. 😋

These vegan cannoli cones would be so perfect for a birthday party, date-night-in, or any kind of event, really.

You could even set up a little cannoli cone bar with various toppings like chocolate chips, cookie crumbles, strawberries…HOW COOL DOES THAT SOUND?!

Maybe my definition of cool is a little skewed, but still…I think that would be one awesome party.

Ingredients

    For the filling:
  • 1/3 cup cocoa butter , melted in the microwave or carefully on the stove
  • 1/3 cup refined coconut oil , also melted
  • 1 16-oz package firm tofu
  • 1/2 cup organic white sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon (optional)
  • 1/4 cup dairy-free chocolate chips
  • For the cones:
  • 8-10 ice cream cones (check ingredients to ensure vegan friendliness)
  • 1/4 cup dairy-free chocolate chips
  • 1 Tbsp refined coconut oil

Instructions

  1. PREP FILLING INGREDIENTS: Melt and measure out your cocoa butter and coconut oil, one at a time. We did this by heating each in a small pan on low heat, stirring until almost completely melted. Then, remove them from heat and stir until completely melted. Now, you can measure them out. You can alternatively use a microwave, just be sure you are at a low heat and stopping often to stir.
  2. MAKE THE FILLING: Add these to your food processor along with the remainder of the filling ingredients (excluding the chocolate chips) to your food processor and blend on high, stopping to scrape down the sides as needed, for about 2-3 minutes or until the oils have emulsified and a thick, luscious texture is achieved.
  3. SET THE FILLING: Add half of this mixture to a pastry bag and the other half to a medium air-tight container. If you don't have / aren't comfortable with pastry bags, feel free to skip that step and put all the filling into the freezer container. Stir 2 Tbsp of the chocolate chips into the mixture in the container and place both in the refrigerator overnight to set. If you’re short on time, you can set it in the freezer for 30 - 45 minutes.
  4. PREPARE YOUR CONES (optional): In a small saucepan, add the chocolate chips and coconut oil. Cook on a very low heat, stirring constantly until the mixture is almost completely melted. Then, turn off the heat and stir until completely melted. Dip the top of each cone into the melted chocolate and set aside. Then, fill each cone with a small drizzle of chocolate. We used large shot glasses to keep the cones upright, but any small glass will work. Place the cones in the freezer for 5- 10 minutes for the chocolate to set.
  5. ASSEMBLY: Spoon the filling into the cones until completely filled. Then, pipe on some filling in a circular motion, creating ice cream cone-like peaks. Sprinkle with the remainder of the chocolate chips and ENJOY!
  6. TO SERVE/STORE: These vegan cannoli cones are best eaten immediately. We suggest storing the filling in the fridge in an air-tight container for up to a week or the freezer for up to 6 weeks.
