It’s been cold here, which means we are all following a steady diet of hot drinks and tasty treats. Our current favorite are Pumpkin Biscotti!
Now that we live with a 2.5 year old, hot chocolate has become our #1 winter beverage.
Hot chocolate when we go for chilly walks.
Hot Chocolate when we cozy up on the couch or in Poppy’s tent and read books.
And of course hot chocolate as an afternoon post-nap snack with Pumpkin Biscotti.
That’s right, my toddler loves biscotti. And it makes me so happy! Pretty much my biggest joy in life is making her foods that she loves. These biscotti are definitely one of them.
What I love about these biscotti and honestly most biscotti recipes, is that they are not as sugar and fat loaded as a traditional cookie. So overall, as far as a sweet treat goes, they are not bad.
My tot loves munching on these and sipping her warm chocolate out of her sippy cup while I love my biscotti early in the morning or late at night with a mug of coffee.
I know I have mentioned this before but these are also amazing little treats to give to friends. People are always wowed by them because they are the kind of thing you pick up at fancy coffee shops but really they are so easy to make!
These Pumpkin Biscotti are mild in flavor and perfect anytime of year. With a light dusting of cinnamon sugar on top, they are a sweet snack with pretty much any hot drink.
Especially hot chocolate as recommended by my tot… “Mas hot cho-clay, mas cotti!!!!”
Recipe slightly modified from King Arthur Flour.
