These biscotti are a spin on a classic and not-so-popular holiday dessert. I took the classic spices and dried fruits found in a fruitcake and added them to a biscotti. I finished them off with a slight dip of semi-sweet chocolate for that needed sweetness that pairs perfectly with the cloves, all spice and nutmeg.
These biscotti are perfect for dipping in your after dinner cappuccino or latte. They also pack very nicely in a simple holiday box for a perfect hostess gift!
You will need a very sharp knife to slice the loaf into biscotti before baking them for the second time (hence the name “bi-scotti” or “twice-baked/cooked”). If your knife is dull you will make a mess (lesson learned).
Happy Holiday baking!
