Oftentimes when we're braving the cold of winter, thoughts of seasonal nostalgia bring us warmth: family all gathered around the fire, drinking egg nog, with bacon cannolis being passed around for all to enjoy. No, don't rub your eyes, bacon cannoli is a real thing and of course it should be a part of your holiday festivities. Because bacon and maple ricotta filling.
Probably seeing that very same vision I have of winter indulgence (time to start building up our extra layer of
fat insulation for the cold), BarBacon, the hog haven in New York City, is offering up bacon cannolis with perfectly paired maple ricotta filling. If your mind's eye is still needing the HD turned up, picture a cannoli, only that the shell is a whole piece of BACON bacon. The filling? A rich and creamy maple ricotta that compliments the bacon more than your ex does after you've glo'd up and gotten your life together. Oh and let's go ahead and throw on some powdered sugar in slow-mo to really amp up the seasonal vibes.
The bacon cannolis are now available for dessert and are sold as part of BarBacon’s Holiday packages, 6 pieces for $24. As of now they're only a seasonal item, but if they do well enough (don't see why not), they could be a permanent fixture on the menu.
