I have never tried biscotti,probably because I rarely drink tea and never drink coffee. But I have always wondered what it tasted like, and always contemplated buying it when I passed by it in local cafes or at the grocery store. I had a an Aunt who always used to dip shortbread in her coffee, and I can remember as a kid grabbing a glass of milk and following suit.
I was recently given an opportunity to try out Nonni’s Biscotti Bites and even though I don’t drink coffee or tea, I couldn’t think of anything more perfect to dunk in my cold glass of milk. So I took the challenge to have my own “Biscotti Moment.” My favorite mommy time comes after the boys go to bed and the house is quiet. I put on a favorite show or a good movie and grab a glass of milk and cookies. Nonni’s Biscotti bites were a welcomed change to my favorite night time snack and I loved them! They are just as perfect for dipping in a cold glass of milk.
Biscotti are gourmet dunking cookies, pronounced <bis-?coat-?tee> in Italy, but more commonly pronounced <bis-?cot-?tee> in America. The name Biscotti was derived from ‘bis’ meaning twice in Italian and ‘cotto’ meaning baked and it was first created in the fourteenth century in the Tuscany region of Italy. Biscotti is made with real eggs, butter and gourmet bittersweet chocolate which gives it that delicately sweet taste and nice light crunch.
My favorite of the three flavors, almond dark chocolate, caramel milk chocolate, and classic almond, had to be the caramel milk chocolate. In fact, the bag didn’t last very long because between me and the boys they were gone in a day! It had these slightly chewy bits of caramel imbedded in the biscotti and one side dipped in a layer of milk chocolate. It sure cured my craving for for something slightly crispy and chewy like a chocolate chip cookie and they are perfect for dipping.
