Can you believe how warm it got this weekend?! Well, I guess I should ask my Northeastern friends that question. But still, it reached 80 degrees here in NJ!
Though, now it’s back to mid 50s, and I’m doing my best not to think too much about climate change and how a 25 degree temperature drop is mildly terrifying. Instead, I’m going to focus on the tropical treat I’ve whipped up for you all today.
These Mocha Coconut Biscotti are the perfect blend of sweet coconut, rich coffee, and cocoa and are sure to be your new favorite treat to dunk into your morning cup of joe.
Since we don’t really get a true “Spring” here in NJ, I’ve decided I can pretty much make tropical treats from now until September. The weather has no idea how to handle itself, and since Mother Nature has been a royal pain in my butt all winter long, I’m just going to flat out ignore her.
Yep. You heard me Mama Nature. I’m through with you and your tantrums. It’s time for Mocha Coconut everything and I’m starting things off with these adorable Mocha Coconut Biscotti. They are perfect on a chilly, rainy day with a cozy latte or hot cup of tea; they are perfect on a warm day with a refreshing iced coffee.
They are perfect all day every day.
Biscotti are also the perfect homemade treat if you have any friends with a Spring/Summer birthday coming up. Nothin’ says lovin’ like something from the oven, right?
Okay. You are absolutely allowed to roll your eyes at that joke. And me.
That is, if you aren’t already constantly doing that while reading my posts. Though I bet there’s a smile accompanying that eye roll! 😉
But back to the biscotti. There’s coconut inside these cookies, on top of these cookies, and plenty of rich coffee flavor to balance out all the sweetness. These are your favorite chocolate cookies all grown up, and I bet you can’t dunk just one in your coffee tomorrow morning.
Imagine enjoying these biscotti with a coconut-flavored coffee! IMAGINE THE SHEER LEVEL OF COFFEE COCONUTTY DELICIOUSNESS!
I shall leave you with that thought and the recipe to these biscotti. Check back on Friday for Banana Cookie Butter Whoopie Pies.
Yeah. You heard me. Cookie butter in whoopie pies. It’s happening. Be excited.
