Nutella Biscotti Cookies

This week I made a batch of Nutella biscotti cookies after buying a jar of Nutella on sale at the grocery store. Spreadable chocolate and hazelnut spread is hard to resist when you are a chocoholic like me!

For breakfast we alternate between raspberry jam, peanut butter and Nutella here at maison Phelps, since buying them all at the same time would result in a rise in cavities and love handles.

I like chocolate, he likes peanut butter and we both love St. Dalfour’s raspberry jam on top of warm and buttery bread. Compromising on spreads for bread makes a happy couple even happier!

Breakfast in our home also means having a big pot of coffee ready to drink first thing in the morning. And what better than Nutella biscotti cookies to dip into our favorite caffeinated beverage.

They soak up the coffee and taste like mochaccino treats – delicious!

Little prep work is required and you don’t have to be a professional baker to make Nutella biscotti cookies. I consider myself somewhat mediocre at baking (although I am slowly getting better at it 🙂 ) and I can tell you that this is a no fail recipe.

Just pay attention to the baking time since every oven is different. If you notice the Nutella biscotti cookies getting too dark in color, take them out of the oven earlier than the recipe calls for and they will be just as delicious!

Other easy and tasty desserts that pair well with tea and coffee: blueberry matcha roll cake, gluten-free peanut butter and jam cookies and olive oil, honey and apple cake.
