Think you’re not a cannoli person? Think again. These homemade, hand-rolled pastry shells, which are flash fried and filled with a non-dairy tofu ricotta filling and Swiss chocolate chips, will change your mind.
“We make hundreds of cannoli weekly,” says owner Danielle Konya. “They’ve become a Vegan Treats favorite.” Other cannoli choices include classic, gluten-free and, when in season, pumpkin filled. Konya says the latter are the perfect dessert to accompany some fresh-steamed soynog this holiday season.
What makes Vegan Treats cannoli—and all of the bakery’s desserts—special is that without compromising flavor, no animals are harmed in the making of their confections. “I always tell people that compassion starts with your fork,” says Konya. “The absolute easiest way to make a difference starts with the decision you make every time you sit down to have a meal.” American Express named them one of the top ten bakeries in the world, so they strive to make the world a better place every day “one dessert at a time.”
After purchasing a box of the Swiss Chocolate-Encased Cannoli, make sure to try the Peanut Butter Bomb Cake. One of Konya’s personal favorites, it’s filled and topped with peanut butter mousse, encased in Belgian chocolate and finished with a drizzle of peanut butter. It’s on VegNews magazine’s list of 99 things you must do before you die—so this is not a joking matter; try it.
