Need a gift for someone? How about wrapping these up? Or just dunk them yourself in some coffee or cocoa!
In a mixer, beat sugar, hot water, eggs, instant coffee and peppermint extract together until smooth and creamy. Slowly add in 2 cups flour, 3/4 cup cocoa, baking soda and salt.
Batter will be very sticky. Line two cookie sheets with Silpat or parchment paper. In small bowl, mix the remaining 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder with the remaining 1/2 cup flour. Divide dough in half and sprinkle parchment with flour/cocoa mixture. With hands, press dough into two rectangles, about 4″ by 10″ (and 1/2″ high).
Bake in a 350ºF oven for about 20 minutes. Remove and let cool 10-15 minutes. Slice rectangles into 1/2″ to 3/4″ wide slices. Lay each slice on its side and put back in the oven (on the parchment-lined baking sheet) for an additional 15-20 minutes.
Remove from oven and allow to cool completely on a wire rack.
Melt white chocolate morsels according to package directions. Spread bottoms of each biscotti with white chocolate then dip into the crushed candy canes. Allow to set, about one hour.
Makes about 18 large biscotti. Enjoy!
Epiphany is celebrated on January 6, and commemorates the Magi’s visit to the Christ Child. Growing up, our church would celebrate with Epiphany Cakes, which were filled with trinkets signifying different things. A fun way to celebrate the twelve day of Christmas with your kids! (Note: Be careful with small objects; make sure kids know they’re in the cake.)
These would be the perfect cookies to make with kids on Christmas eve to set out for Santa! Not only are they cute and fun, but they’re absolutely delicious. A soft and chewy sugar cookie base with cream cheese frosting, white chocolate, chocolate chips, marshmallows and sprinkles!
The main thing to remember about peppernuts is that they are tiny, about a third to a half inch, no larger. Peppernuts are a tradition in many German families. They came to our area with the Mennonite immigration in the 1870′s. Imagine generations of people grabbing a handful or two of peppernuts and munching away and you have a tradition worth continuing.
Nancy is the Coupon Clipping Cook, which means she not only has an astounding number of recipes to share with us (her TK recipe box is busting at the seams!) but she's also got loads of money-saving tips in her blog (she worked at a grocery store for a number of years, so she knows her stuff). She has some pretty amazing creations, like Roasted Garlic Potato Soup and Nutty Coconut Chicken. Go check them out!
Heather is a Texas native and the blogger behind Heather's Dish. She's mom to Weston, wife to Nate, and they live in Little Rock, Arkansas with their two "stubborn and saucy" dogs Bunker and Keira. In her blog, she shares her photographs, random musings (serious and silly alike), and all kinds of scrumptious recipes---and not just evil variations of her favorite mac and cheese. Her enviable TK recipe box is a testament to that. Go see for yourself!
