This classic biscotti recipe is simple with no frills. Pairs perfectly with a cappuccino!
I participated in Mom Blog Tour Summer Fancy Food Show (#MomBlogTourFF) on behalf of Wendy’s Bloggers. I received Two Rivers Coffee products to facilitate my review, but my opinions and content are my own.
We all know I am a coffee person. I drink it morning, noon, and night if I could (and I have). I know other coffee drinkers can relate with me when it comes to their morning coffee rituals. That first sip of coffee in the morning is heaven. And what makes it even better is when I have something sweet to go along with it.
Going with the traditional coffee traditions, nothing beats biscotti with your coffee. Homemade biscotti has a crispy, crunchy, mild sweet flavor. Not the jaw breaking commercial biscotti that you find in the stores. It can be a little daunting and intimidating to make at first but it’s really not that bad! And once you master a classic biscotti recipe, you can try your hand at other flavors.
If you want a perfect match for your biscotti, you can’t go wrong with a cappuccino. You don’t have to hit the drive-thru to get a cappuccino. You can easily make one at home with the help of your Keurig and Baileys Cappuccino.
It couldn’t be easier to make. Pour the contents of the first packet into a cup or mug. A glass mug works best so you can see the foam in action. Next, brew the single serve cup over the foam packet.
The powder does get clumpy sometimes so its best to start stirring while its brewing to avoid this. If there are clumps just stir until they are fully dissolved and let it sit for about 10 or 15 seconds until the foam and the coffee are fully separated.
Enjoy your home brewed cappuccino with your homemade classic biscotti!
