I know there has been a lot of talk about the weather lately, but can I just say again that it’s been crazy! We were in the upper 40’s at the beginning of the week and now we are back in the single digits with a blizzard warning. My husband’s 4 mile commute last night took him over 40 minutes because of the blowing snow and ice! Weather like this calls for hot drinks and fleece blankets!
And to go with those hot drinks? Biscotti! Triple chocolate biscotti to be exact. Though, if you count the baking cocoa, it’s quadruple chocolate biscotti. Even better! Baking cocoa gives these biscotti a rich chocolate base and dark chocolate and semi-sweet chocolate chips are stirred in. To add even more chocolate to the mix, white chocolate is drizzled on top.
The result is a decadent biscotti chock full of all kinds of chocolate. Just what you want to go with your favorite coffee or hot chocolate!
