As you can imagine, our recent college graduate is walking on cloud nine - me, not so much. I'm still coming to terms with the fact that I'm old enough to be the parent of 2 college graduates. 😬😅
Despite my roller coaster of emotions last weekend, we had a great time celebrating the accomplishments of our recent graduate. And since her love languages are time and food - we filled two whole days with great friends and family and LOTS and LOTS of amazing food. Pasta, doughnuts, chicken and waffles, macaroni and cheese, quesadillas, a taco bar with nachos and queso and of course, chocolate, all had to be included in the celebrations. #sheknowswhatshelikes 💁🏻♀️
In case you were thinking that I made all of those delicious foods - let me just stop you right there. I employed a LOT of help to pull off those epic feasts. And I use that term "employed" loosely. It's an unwritten rule that anyone who happens to be related to me (or marries someone related to me) will be asked to pitch in with food prep on party days. 👩🏻🍳 😉
I may not have made much of the party food for last weekend but I did manage to make a batch of her favorite chocolate chip biscotti as my contribute to the weekend. I even did it ahead of time and put it in the freezer for safe keeping. Yea me! BUT, I got wrapped up in the whirlwind of events over the weekend and I completely forgot to take it out of the freezer. 🤦🏻♀️ Oh well, like we'll be celebrating Father's Day with biscotti this year. (Someone please help me remember to get it out of my freezer.) 😅
Chocolate Chip Biscotti
6 tablespoons butter room temperature
⅔ cup of granulated sugar
¼ teaspoon salt
1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
3 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 large eggs room temperature
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup mini chocolate chips
2 tablespoons large crystal decorating sugar
½ cup melted dark chocolate
Reduce heat to 325. Let biscotti cool 10 minutes. Cut into 1/2" slices. Arrange on baking sheets and bake 25-30 minutes longer.
Dip one end in chocolate. Allow to cool.
I love biscotti and this chocolate dipped chocolate chip biscotti is amazing.
