A “donnoli” or “"danolli" is a hybrid of a donut and a cannoli. Psycho Donuts (Bay area, CA) introduced the “danolli” in August 2013. Zagat explained:
“A tube-shaped donut is fried, filled with pastry cream and chocolate chips and then rolled in crushed cannoli pieces to bring your future heart attack a few days closer to your body. Have mercy.”
ShopRite supermarkets (Nutley and Belleville, NJ) introduced the “donnoli” in February 2014. The “donnoli” is a donut filled with cannoli cream and topped with chocolate.

The Danolli. A hybrid created and manufactured in the Bay Area
Here’s proof that the Bay Area can out-hybrid even New York!
How ‘bout a crazy Psycho welcome for…
Danolli’s are the result of a head-on collision between an innocent donut and a cannoli.
The Danolli has a raised dough chassis, filled with an inpastata pastry cream engine. The entire vehicle is then rolled into crushed cannoli shells, creating a psychological, crash-resistant exterior. Semi-sweet chocolate morsels adorn either end of this hybrid vehicle, and chocolate drizzle covers the hood. A protective coating of powdered sugar is gently applied over the vehicle’s finish.

Meet the latest entry into cronut knock-off territory in the Bay Area: The danolli, a donut-cannoli made by Psycho Donuts. The company, which has two shops in the South Bay in Campbell and San Jose, is known for going way over the top, but they’ve climbed even dizzier heights on this one. A tube-shaped donut is fried, filled with pastry cream and chocolate chips and then rolled in crushed cannoli pieces to bring your future heart attack a few days closer to your body. Have mercy.

Donnoli, a donut cannoli hybrid, is the new cronut

NEW JERSEY (KGO)—There’s been an ongoing movement to combine desserts. And now, there’s a new one for you.
You may remember the wildly popular cronut, which is a combination of a croissant and donut.
Now a new creation is flying off the shelves of a New Jersey supermarket.
It’s called a Donnoli, and it’s a combination of a donut and cannoli.
This new sweet treat is the brainchild of David and Vincent, co-owners of a ShopRite in Nutley and one in Belleville.
They take a donut and fill it with a mixture of homemade cannoli cream—cinnamon, a little vanilla, whipped cream—then top it with chocolate.

What a bunch of crap! Not even a good knock-off! Everyone knows that I invented the REAL Danolli at Psycho Donuts almost a year ago!
