Lower Fat Triple Chocolate Coconut Almond Biscotti

Nor Mac


Most know how I love my Biscotti. I usually make it from scratch. I saw a recipe for Brownie Biscotti with boxed Ghiradelli mix. I decided to put my own spin on it, and make it lower fat. I added more chocolate, decreased and increased ingredients. I also made a different flavor combo. The result is delicious. Please enjoy these flavorful Biscotti with a nice cup of coffee. They are definately a chocoholic's dream. Hubby said he liked them over and over! I guess he likes them very much! :-)
