Sicilian Cannoli with Chocolate Ricotta Filling

After months of delaying, finally today I made this long due cannoli that I've promised to DS. When I asked him to taste it, he ate not only one but three.

Original Recipe: Genius Kitchen Cannoli Shells
Ingredients for the shells: 1 1/3 cups flour 1 tbsp shortening/butter 1 pinch of salt 1/2 tsp sugar *Apple juice Oil for deep frying
Mix together flour, shortening, salt and sugar. Add apple juice to make a stiff dough. Knead the dough until smooth. Roll into a ball, wrap in a plastic and let it sit for 1 hour.
Roll the dough on floured surface as thin as possible without tearing it. Cut out a disc and wrap it around the cannoli tubes. Seal the end with water. Certain recipe called for egg yolk.

Deep fry the shells slightly brown, remove the tubes slowly and continue fry it until it turn golden brown. Remove from oil and let the shells drain and cool.
I hold the seam with the thong so that it will stay seal during frying
