Making biscotti is really easy, but people are so impressed if you can make them. Many biscotti recipes are about 70 calories per cookie if you don’t add icing or too many extra goodies. They are fairly inexpensive to make and cost way less than what you’d pay for them at a coffee shop.
I make these chocolate biscotti every so often when I’ve got a craving for chocolate that just won’t go away. They are only 71 calories even with the chocolate chips in them. Most of the time I leave them out to cut the calorie count even more. No worries, the deep chocolate flavor comes from cocoa, and you won’t miss the chocolate chips.
For entertaining you can add the chocolate chips as well as dried cranberries, sliced almonds, walnuts, or pistachios. You can drizzle melted white chocolate on if you like. These make great gifts that most people really appreciate.
