Looking for something a little different for a Valentine's Day treat? Chocolate Almond Biscotti may be just the thing. Long, crunchy cookies with a rich chocolate flavor are made to be savored slowly over a cup of coffee or tea.
Biscotti have been around for a long time. Centuries ago, they were originally made as a”long-shelf-life” food (very dry and containing no fats) for travelers and were carried by the Roman Legions to battle. Today’s biscotti, while still hard and crunchy, are a far cry from the original, and are a popular accompaniment to espresso, cappuccino, and dessert wine. Their unique texture makes them perfect to dunk in your morning coffee, afternoon tea, or wine after dinner (History of Biscotti).
