Holy Cannoli Trifle

I have been seeing a lot of recipes lately using cannoli cream,,,,,Cannoli's are one of my familys favorite Italian desserts!!.....Well I had bought some Lady Fingers (spongy soft  kind) and was going to make something else with them,and just figured why not make a Trifle out of them with a cannoli cream filling! I have also made these as an individual dessert,,,The choice is yours!,,,,Also if you can't find Lady fingers I am sure you could use pound cake (cubed),,,,Here is what I did!,,,,Enjoy!

2 Packages soft Lady fingers
2 C ricotta cheese
1 17.5 oz container Marscapone cheese**
1 C confectioners sugar
1 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
1 t vanilla
1/2 t cinnamon
1 8 oz container cool whip
sliced almonds for garnish
about 1 cup mini chocolate chips
In a mixer with whisk attachment add ricotta, marscapone, powder sugar, condensed milk
vanilla and cinnamon
whip until creamy....set aside
arrange Lady Fingers in bottom of trifle bowl....top with 1/3 cannoli cream
sprinkle with chocolate chips
Repeat 2 more times ending with cannoli cream then chocolate chips
Finally top with cool whip, almonds and sprinkle with chocolate chips
Refrigerate until ready to serve
Here they are as an individual dessert!
**Marscapone is like an Italian cream cheese,,,It can be found in most Italian
Specialty markets it comes in a plastic tub like cream cheese does!
