For days when regular french toast will not cut it, try making this cannoli french toast! It’s guaranteed to please with its creamy filling and chocolatey flavors.

We love to make these rollups for a leisurely weekend breakfast or brunch. They’re also fabulous when you’re entertaining including around Easter and Mother’s Day holidays. Serve them dusted with powdered sugar or maple syrup and fresh berries for a winning presentation.

How to Make Cannoli French Toast

Step 1: Make the filling by combining the ricotta cheese and chocolate chips in a medium bowl. Then spread it onto slices of sandwich bread.

Step 2: Make the french toast dipping liquid by combining egg, milk, cinnamon, sugar and vanilla in a bowl. Dip the bread slices and then pan fry in a nonstick skillet over medium heat.

Step 3: Serve warm dusted with powdered sugar with fresh berries if desired.
