I love baking for the holidays and love sending treats to my friends and family. I am always looking for a sturdy cookie that can withstand the hustle and bustle of the US postal service! I came across the best Biscotti recipe a number of years ago and am still using it today! This Peppermint Biscotti is the best combination of cookie and candy you will just love it!
But before we get into the Peppermint Biscotti I have some important information to share with you. I was so excited to learn about The Great American Milk Drive, it being the first-ever national program to help deliver highly desired and nutrient-rich gallons of milk to hungry families who need it most. Milk is not something that is normally donated to food banks, because it is perishable, but it is in extremely high demand. More than 46.5 million Americans – including one in every six children – rely on Feeding America food banks each year? For a small donation at The Great American Milk Drive will deliver a gallon of milk to a family in need to your local community! Visit their milk donation page to learn about the need and how a small donation can make a large impact. But here is a way that a gallon of milk can be donated to The Great American Milk Drive all we need to do is purchase 2 bags of M&M’s® at Walmart (9.4 oz bags or larger) and up to a gallon of milk will be donated to The Great American Milk Drive. Who doesn’t need more M&M’s® for the holidays? And you will need the M&M’s® White Peppermint for the Peppermint Biscotti so there is one bag already! OK now for the Biscotti!
I came across this recipe probably about 10 years ago and have adapted it to make so many flavors! The best thing is it starts with a cake mix!
For the Peppermint Biscotti I uses the Pillsbury™ Funfetti® Holiday Cake Mix so the biscotti looks so festive!! And as I mentioned earlier you will need the M&M’s® White Peppermint and these are my favorite! I love the white chocolate!! I chopped up the M&M’s® White Peppermint candies and sprinkled them on top for another layer of peppermint goodness!
These just scream holidays to me!! Between the White Chocolate drizzle and the dusting of the chopped M&M’s® White Peppermint candies these cookies are amazing! Now I like a biscotti that has a bite to it but not one I need to worry about breaking a tooth on and this recipe creates a semi hard cookie with a soft crisp bite! Which in my book is the perfect biscotti!
The dusting of the chopped M&M’s® White Peppermint makes these cookies look like they are dusted with snow! So pretty! I love to use a piping bag to drizzle the melted candy on top of the biscotti makes clean up easy!!
How would you like to win a Kitchen Aid Mixer how nice would that be for your holiday baking?
Another really great thing is I was able to find all my ingredients for this cookie at my local Walmart! Yup one stop shopping you gotta love that!
