Candy Cane White Chocolate Marble Biscotti – a Sweet Christmas Cookie Gift

christmas candy cane white chocolate bicotti mocha gift

Our 13 year-old daughter is our Baking Contributor.  Oh this momma’s proud! She’s shared a few of her sweet treats already – you can find them all here – and she always does her own photography.  This post is a first though!  This is the first time she’s written the intro to it herself.  It’s so much fun – and crazy delicious!    😊 ~ Robin

What’s the best winter drink in the world? Hot chocolate, right? Warms you up after tobogganing or an icy walk. It’s not too difficult to make and it’s also chocolate. You can have it cold, you can pour it in a thermos or just pop it in a mug. What’s not to love?

There’s not much you can do to improve it, though. I guess you can add marshmallows or whipped cream, but that’s boring. I want something unique and special. Something to add some pizzazz.

Biscotti was the only cure for this hot chocolate sadness.

Not just any biscotti. Super Biscotti. I worked in my lab to concoct the best biscotti ever. It couldn’t just be plain, it had to have chocolate. But not completely chocolate, it also had to have more chocolate and candy canes. I created with my heat ray (the oven) and the magic pot (a double boiler) to make… CANDY CANE WHITE CHOCOLATE MARBLE BISCOTTI!!! (Try saying that ten times fast.)

This recipe sounds crazy complicated but it really isn’t. You just make the dough, cook it once, slice the loaves, cook them again, plop in some chocolate and candy canes and presto, you got biscotti.

The best biscotti.

This recipe is tasty and not too difficult. Another plus is that you can take breaks during the cooking. You can also leave the white chocolate and candy canes out but I don’t recommend it.

Now stop reading this and start baking…I’m going to bake some more to give to my friends and teachers.  I think my Candy Cane White Chocolate Marble Biscotti will be a great Christmas gift!
