TWD: Chocolate Biscotti



Jacque of Daisy Lane Cakes chose Chocolate Biscotti on page 144. Am I the only one who doesn't like dunking cookies in coffee/tea/milk? I prefer my cookies undipped. Even when they are really hard ones like biscotti.

I used hot chocolate mix instead of cocoa powder because I was out of cocoa. Oops. That's why they are a lighter shade of brown rather than the deep, rich brown you would expect them to be. I had to cut down on the sugar a little because the hot chocolate mix had added sugar already. We enjoyed them and I would make them again with cocoa as originally called for.

I consider biscotti great café food. I am interested now that I can make it in my own home! Good work!

Quick thinking! These are pretty yummy!

Those look great! At first I thought they looked like almond biscotti but you can see that they are light cocoa-colored.

Love the light color - I bet the hot chocolate was fabulous in them! :)

These look great! I never would have though to use hot chocolate instead of cocoa. I'm not a dunker, either, although I did dunk mine in melted bittersweet chocolate. ;-)

Way to be creative! Haha, cocoa biscotti sounds very good.

We thought these were great and I was delighted that they weren't super hard--they had just enough crunch.

They look lovely! I don't dip cookies into my beverage either - ick!

You know, I have a gigantic container of cocoa mix and wondered if it could ever be subbed for cocoa powder or used in something besides hot cocoa. Your biscotti still look delicious...and I'm not a dunker, though I do prefer mine chewy to crunchy!

I think they look good, even in the lighter shade. These were delicious cookies.

I will definitely have to try your version. Hot choco mix. Interesting!!

They look pretty good. Way to make it work! ;-)

I think they look very pretty that way - makes me think of ways I could use my giant bag of cocoa!
