Triple Chocolate Biscotti
Triple Chocolate Biscotti comes to be:
Sometimes baking inspiration isn’t planned; rather it’s brought about by a life experience. One time while shopping in local gourmet shop I found myself in the bakery section contemplating things “oh so sweet”. I picked up a small package of chocolate dipped biscotti and found them to be around $5.
In the ensuing battle between
my craving and rational thought, which told me I could make many more biscotti
for the same price, I decide to create the ultimate chocolate delight, Triple Chocolate Biscotti.
I did a quick review, in my mind, for the
necessary ingredients and realized I had everything at home except the melting
chocolate. I went to the chocolate department and bought what I needed for less
AND NOW FOR THE REST OF THE STORY!
