When the holidays near we love to have people over, or just chill out at home together and have movie nights (or weekends). Making a picnic upstairs in the loft with hot chocolate and a few pieces of homemade biscotti drizzled with chocolate is the perfect treat. They’re great with coffee too!

  • Of course you can use good ol’ packets to make your favorite drink but do you know how to make homemade hot chocolate? It is really a lot easier than you probably think. Just a few ingredients and it is so much better than store bought.

If you are having company over the best way to do it is to make 2 batches, one that is spiked for the adults and one traditional batch.

Pour them into a few crockpots to keep warm all day long with a side of this chocolatey homemade biscotti recipe and coffee and you’ll be set for the morning and early afternoon…perfect on Christmas morning.

Like I said for the dough you only need a few ingredients and then when you’re done and they’re cooling you can drizzle them with chocolate or a bit of caramel to add sweetness.

Most of the items I am sure you already have in your pantry so it is perfect to throw together in case you need to bring something or are last minute in planning your get together.

This is what you need to make homemade biscotti:

  1. Cornmeal
  2. Sugar
  3. Eggs
  4. Flour
  5. Baking powder
  6. Vanilla
  7. Drizzle – chocolate

Don’t they look good?? If you’ve had packaged biscotti there is no comparison, plus you can put whatever you want on top and they are super fresh.

I love having brunch because you can set out things like this, a few drinks, and sweet breads like our pumpkin banana bread recipe and everyone can graze all day long on the goodies.

Holidays are all about snacking, sweets, and baking together.

If you love being in the kitchen with your kids this is a great simple dessert you can make together. Pair it with a cup of Dalgona whipped coffee and enjoy.

Serving it with ice cream is really yummy too according to my girls. They can use it as an edible spoon to scoop up some ice cream, and they love it with a warm cup of hot cocoa.

Give it a whirl!
