Mini Cannoli Calzone


1 tube refrigerated pizza crust, thin variety

4 ounces cream cheese

1/2 cup ricotta cheese

1 teaspoon vanilla

Pinch cinnamon

1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

1/2 cup (8 tablespoons) butter, melted and divided

1 cup mini chocolate chips, divided

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Unroll refrigerated pizza crust. Cut into six 4- to 5-inch rounds.

In a stand mixer, beat together cream cheese, ricotta, vanilla, cinnamon, and powdered sugar until smooth. Spoon into the center of one side of each pizza crust round.

Fold each crust round over the filling, using a fork to seal the edges together. Place on prepared baking sheet. Baste calzones with 1/4-cup (4 tablespoons) of melted butter. Bake in preheated oven for 11-17 minutes, or until the calzones turn a light golden brown. Remove and cool slightly.

In a medium microwave-safe bowl, melt together 2/3 cup of the chocolate chips and 1/4-cup (4 tablespoons) melted butter. Stir until smooth. Drizzle over calzones. Sprinkle with remaining mini chocolate chips. Serve warm. Makes 6 servings.
