Take your love of cheesecake, churros, and cannolis and combine them into one AMAZING dessert that is sure to please everyone! These easy strawberry cheesecake churro cannolis will be a huge hit at your holiday gathering!
Cannolis are one of my absolute favorite desserts! Every year on my birthday, my husband takes me to this amazing Italian place near us and I get a free one every time. It's always delicious and I look forward to it every year. I'm also a huge fan of churros and cheesecake (Disney World and Cheesecake Factory, duh!), so when I saw a recipe for strawberry cheesecake churro cannolis on Facebook, I was SO excited to try it!
These delicious pastries have those crispy edges of a cannoli and the sweet sugary taste of a churro, with the tartness of a strawberry cheesecake all rolled into one. It's the perfect dessert for a crowd or for only a small gathering. You can make as many or as little as you like and its super quick and easy.
I was a little unsure of how easy it was going to be to get the wrappers in a cannoli shape, but it actually worked out great. All you need to do is place the wrapper around a rolled up piece of aluminum foil, then fry it. Like the picture below. Easy peasy!
My husband and I had a lot of fun making these. It's a great treat for Christmas decorating too! :) Throw some Christmas sprinkles on there, or even roll the wrappers in colored sugar cyrstals! These would be super fun to make with your kids too!
