I know, I know. It’s Monday. Those weekends fly by way too quickly. Lucky for you I have the perfect treat to wake you up and get you moving today. I’m a huge fan of biscotti and dunking it in my coffee. It just makes for a nice little treat while enjoying your morning or afternoon….or any cup of coffee. This biscotti combines some delicious flavors: coffee, mocha, macadamia nuts and it is topped off with a bit of white chocolate for added sweetness. If you haven’t made biscotti before it is super easy and quick to make.
Preheat oven to 350° and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat. Combine the flour, coffee, cocoa powder, baking soda and cinnamon in a medium bowl and whisk to incorporate all flavors.
In the bowl of your stand mixer combine the sugar, butter, honey, vanilla and eggs. Beat on medium speed to mix the ingredients and then reduce the speed to low. Beat in the flour mixture until it is just combined. Stir in the macadamia nuts by hand.
Form the dough in 2 3×8 inch logs and place on the prepared baking sheet about 3 inches apart. Bake until browned, about 25 minutes. Remove the biscotti from the oven and allow to cool for 10 minutes. Place the biscotti onto a cutting board and cut into 1/2 inch slices using a serrated knife. Place the pieces cut side up bake onto the baking sheet.
Reduce the oven temperature to 325° and place the biscotti back into the oven for 20 minutes. Flip the pieces over halfway through the 20 minutes. Allow the biscotti to cool for 10 minutes on the baking sheet before transferring them onto a cooling rack to cool completely.
While the biscotti cools, melt the white chocolate in a double boiler, stirring until smooth. Dip the biscotti partway into the chocolate and then place on a baking sheet lined with fresh parchment. Repeat with all of the pieces and then place the baking sheet into the refrigerator for 30 minutes to allow the chocolate to harden.
