Chocolate Orange Biscotti
My mind always is thinking of the next great biscotti recipe. Anyone else with me on this?
Okay, so maybe not everyone thinks the same way I do. But, biscotti is a delicious, crunchy treat that is perfect for breakfast.
Seriously, cookies for breakfast. And because biscotti is totally acceptable, you can put anything in them! (hello..turtle biscotti) Today, though, I made some Chocolate Orange Biscotti.
I added orange zest and orange flavoring to the biscotti. I then topped each piece with some melted milk chocolate drizzle. I mixed up some more orange zest with granulated sugar and sprinkled that on the melted chocolate. Biscotti is so easy to make and it’s so impressive to serve to friends, family or enjoy by yourself.
