Red Velvet Biscotti

Valentine’s Day seems to be on everyone’s mind, well except maybe my husband, who scheduled a boy scout camp out for that very weekend, actually that very night (sigh). But for everyone else, this special day of love is right around the corner. Although I am not ready to hit the store and write 125 valentines for my kids, I am ready to make some of my favorite Valentine’s Day treats. Red Velvet combines two essential components to make a perfect Valentine’s Day treat chocolate and red.

This year, when thinking about what kind of special treats my kids can take to their teachers, I thought Red Velvet Biscotti would be a nice change, something a little different and the perfect complement to go with their morning cup of Joe. So here is my recipe for Red Velvet Biscotti. I hope you enjoy it or your kids’ teachers enjoy it as much as I do.

What is biscotti?

Biscotti are Italian almond biscuits that originated in the Italian city of Prato. Traditionally, they are baked twice and in an oblong shape, resulting in a dry, crunchy cookie usually dipped in a drink like coffee or tea.

Biscotti is classified as a cookie, and even though I am typically not a fan of crisp, crunchy cookies, these are amazing. So, I guess maybe I do love crunchy cookies because I love biscotti.

Sandra’s Tips

  • To maintain the freshness of your Red Velvet Biscotti, store them in a cool, dry place within an airtight container. This will ensure their deliciousness for up to one week.
  • Slice your biscotti to your desired size. Keep the dough thickness consistent to avoid adjusting the baking time.
  • Before baking, I shape my biscotti dough into rectangles that are approximately half an inch thick.
  • When flavoring your Red Velvet Biscotti, the possibilities are endless! You can add in chopped nuts or dried fruits for an extra burst of flavor and texture.
  • A fun idea is to package these delicious treats in pretty bags or boxes and give them as gifts to friends and family.

Kids review: They loved this! They like my other biscotti but this by far is their favorite. When they asked to have more I told them we were saving them for their teachers and they were super sad, “Can’t we just make more?” Best kind of reaction to me!
