Jen and Ben may have started the name combining craze, but it was one we never truly appreciated until the cronut. New Jersey has come up with their hybrid signature dessert and it is nothing short of fantastic. The Donnoli combines a donut with a connoli for a decadent dessert that is sweeping the shelves of New Jersey Shop Rites.
The creation of co-owners of a ShopRite in Nutley, New Jersey, the donnoli is a donut filled with a homemade cannoli cream enhanced with cinnamon, vanilla and whipped cream. The stuffed pastry is then topped with chocolate, an extra dollop of cream, a sprinkling of chocolate chips and some cannoli shell crumbs. And at $3 for a pack of two, they're not only delicious, they're a deal, too.
