Cappuccino flavored biscotti makes a perfectly crunchy evening snack…
Who wouldn’t love something sweet and crunchy along with a cup of coffee or tea??? This cappuccino biscotti is perfect with a cup of coffee or cappuccino or even tea.
The difference between a cookie and biscotti is that biscottis are double baked, that’s what makes it crunchy and crispy. A few years ago, I had tried chocolate almond coconut biscotti, in this biscotti I got to enjoy too many flavors.
I am a cappuccino fanatic and for that reason this cappuccino biscotti has turned into my favorite. You just have to add espresso or strong coffee to the biscotti mixture. As the biscotti was baking in the oven, the aroma of espresso spread the entire house and I was seen taking deep breaths in.
The biscotti tasted phenomenal and I was mesmerized by the amazing aroma.
