Easy Biscotti

There’s so much to do during the holidays that sometimes it’s great to have a few shortcuts up your sleeve. One of those shortcuts is dressing up store bought items to make them more gift-worthy or party-worthy.

That’s what I did for this recipe. Make these easy chocolate biscotti for the holidays and beyond.

  • They make fantastic teachers gifts
  • Take them to parties as a hostess gift
  • Use color coordinating candies to serve them at baby or bridal showers.
  • Make them any time you just want a quick and easy treat during the busy holiday season.

No-bake Dessert

It’s easy to dress up store bought biscotti by using melted chocolate and M&M’s.  I’m a big fan of dark chocolate and did you know that dark chocolate that is 70% cacao is actually GOOD for you?  Yep, it has antioxidants! 

That’s why I like using the 71% cacao dark chocolate Dove bars for this project.  Adding in a few of the dark chocolate Dove Promises gives extra smoothness, and the M&M’s are the perfect topping to add a festive look. 

The red and green coated candies make this a Christmas treat but you can use any of the colors to coordinate for a baby shower, bridal showers, or birthday celebration.

It only takes minutes to prepare and the kids love getting involved!

What You Need

  • Milk or Dark Chocolate for melting
  • Plain biscotti cookies
  • M&M’S colorful candies
