Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti Dipped in Peppermint Chocolate

Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti Dipped in Peppermint Chocolate

Cranberries and Pistachio Biscotti Dipped in Peppermint ChocolateThe Hungryman and I had been looking forward to this past weekend for a very long time.  For once, we didn’t have any plans and neither of us had much work to do.  The unfamiliar frigid weather presented the perfect opportunity for lounging around in our PJs all weekend long, and that’s exactly what we did.  We got some takeout (which happens very rarely), caught up on some TV shows, the Hungryman brewed beer (he shall be sharing about this endeavor soon), and I baked biscotti.  If we were going to be cooped up inside, the sweet aroma of fresh baked goods was a must!  With the holidays coming up, my inspiration for this treat comes from all the flavors I love during this time – cranberries + pistachios, peppermint, and of course, chocolate.

I slightly adapted from my almond blueberry biscotti made with whole wheat pastry flour.  Seriously, biscotti are so easy to bake and can be made ahead of time.

Cranberry and Pistachio Biscotti Dipped in Peppermint Chocolate Dunk this in a cup of hot chocolate or coffee and grab a spot by the fireplace to keep yourself warm and fuzzy both inside and out.  These holiday biscotti make for a perfect gift, too!

  2. Sounds like you have a great weekend! I love the weekends when there is nothing planned and you can just relax, bake and enjoy yourself. I love biscotti and would love to try this version dipped in peppermint chocolate. Have a great week, Min!

    • Yup! It was a glorious weekend..I miss it already hehe. Your cranberry and pistachio biscotti looks sooo good too! Don’t you just love that combo? Hope you have a wonderful week as well!

  3. I drink coffee everyday and biscotti is a great company to go with it. However I’ve never made homemade biscotti. It “looks” a little bit of work but maybe my main reason is that I’m afraid I eat it a few pieces a day with my coffee throughout a day! =P I love your combination. Cranberry and pistachio is always great combo, but I love whole flavor here!

    • Oh how I wish I could drink coffee everyday! I’m trying to stay away from caffeine as much as possible for the time being but I’ve been failing miserably as of late. I, too, was intimidated by the thought of making biscotti, but trust me, if I can do it so can you! ;)

  4. Oh, yum! This blend of flavours matches my tastes perfectly :) They look so pretty too! I’m glad you got a weekend to relax as I definitely relate to how good that feels when life is busy (and your life has been really busy of late).

  5. heading over right now!

  6. I love lazy weekends like that. I have been looking forward to the current weekend because it’s the first weekend of the fall that I haven’t had to worry about school! The semester is over with and I don’t have to worry about classes until January! Yeah!

    Great recipe, Min. We love pistachios at my house so this would be a winner. Thanks for sharing at Marvelous Mondays. Pinned!

  7. Don’t you just love lounging weekends like that! We cherish them. And how about this perfect holiday Biscotti. It looks wonderful. I was at Sur la Table yesterday and saw they had a container of small crushed peppermint candy cane. I grabbed one and wondered what I was going to use it for … and voila. Thanks for this recipe.

  8. Thanks so much for linking up this recipe at Tasty Tuesdays last week. I chose to have it be one of my features for this week!! Hope to see you around Tasty Tuesdays over at West Street Story again soon!
