Funfetti Biscotti for Breakfast

Today’s biscotti is also inspired by cake: Birthday Cake!

I love a piece of biscotti for breakfast, so why not make a batch filled with sprinkles and delicious cake flavor.

  • Birthday Cake Biscotti have a buttery flavor with the perfect amount of sweetness.
  • They taste like just like funfetti cake baked into crisp crunchy breakfast cookies.
  • Serve them for a birthday breakfast, dessert or afternoon treat.
  • Delicious with a cup of hot coffee for dunking!

Important Ingredients

This biscotti dough starts with a simple mixture of butter, sugar, eggs and flour. Give it a cake batter twist with these other additions:

  • Butter flavoring – This extract gives the biscotti an even richer, more buttery flavor.
  • Sprinkles – We used rainbow sprinkles for a festive look! Jimmies sprinkles or round “confetti” sprinkles are perfect.
  • White chocolate wafers – Ghirardelli brand is best. The wafers melt smoothly and set up beautifully on the biscotti.

How to Make Birthday Biscotti

Making Birthday Cake Biscotti is easier than you might think.

  • Mix together the dough ingredients and fold in half of the sprinkles. Shape the dough into two logs and bake for about 25 minutes.
  • Now, cut the dough into slices and bake again until golden brown on both sides.
  • Dip the tops of cooled biscotti in melted white chocolate. Immediately add the remaining sprinkles on top.

Let the chocolate set for a few minutes, then eat and enjoy!

  • In a large mixing bowl, beat butter and sugar until creamy. Add egg and butter flavoring.
  • Add flour and baking powder and beat until combined. Fold in 2 Tbsp sprinkles.
  • Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper (or a silpat). Divide dough in half and shape into two 10inch x 2.5inch rectangles. Use flour on your fingertips to keep dough from sticking.
  • Bake in a 350 degree oven for 25 minutes. Remove and cool 10 minutes. Using a serrated knife, cut each rectangle into 9-10 slices each. Turn each slice onto it's side. Bake an additional 10 minutes. Flip biscotti onto opposite sides. Bake another 8-10 minutes. Remove and cool completely.
  • Once cooled, dip tops of biscotti into melted white chocolate. Add sprinkles immediately. ENJOY.
