Did this dip for a party and it went over well BUT it's far closer to a Key Lime dip -- which hey, is fine but cannoli it ain't. It is also thinner than the picture would suggest -- I don't know what they were piping in that pic! If I make this again, I'd maybe try ricotta and mascarpone or cream cheese. It'd just be nice to be thicker and able to pipe. Also, in order to have decent sized waffle 'chips' I'd suggest get waffle cone bowls and breaking them up a little bit. As for the flavor, I'll probably just go full on Key Lime, really own it. The recipe is a novel idea...it just didn't work like it could have.

This recipe was not good. I made it exactly as directed and it was very runny. I tried adding more sugar, but it did not help. I had to throw it away.
