Donnoli, a donut cannoli hybrid, is the new cronut

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.

From start to finish, it takes the team about 2.5 hours to make a batch. And at less than a buck, they're getting snapped up on the spot.

David and Vincent hope to get their creation placed in all 260 ShopRites on the East Coast.
