1 tablespoon cacao nibs, roughly chopped half of a vanilla bean (seeds only)

Peel apples and slice quarter inch thick on mandolin. Generously brush coconut oil onto dehydrator sheet and lay apple slices out, not overlapping. When tray is full brush the tops of each apple slice and dehydrate at 118 for 1 1/2 hours or until pliable. Remove tray and lay apple slices overlapping each other 4 apple slices long. Repeat this step 4 times till you have about a 4 inch square of overlapping apple slices. Brush any dry pieces with coconut oil and dehydrate for 2 more hours. Remove from dehydrator and wrap around a cannoli mold and gently lay on mesh sheet. Repeat this step with remaining squares then dehydrate till firm and able to hold own shape. Gently slide cannoli off mold and continue to dehydrate till crispy. Stuff with filling.

If creating shell is too much trouble you can easily just overlap 4 apple slices and put a couple dollops of cannoli cheese in center of dehydrated apple wheels. Tastes exactly the same but at a fraction of the work!
