Biscotti is always a classic mishloach manos treat, and you can personalize them to make them even more special. I headed out to Barnettes Fine Biscotti with my trusty camera to learn some tips and tricks for making them neat and pretty.
The first basic tips is to use water to flatten out the top of the biscotti batter so that it is smooth and even. This trick I actually learned from my sister and included it in my cookbook. Place a bowl of water on the side and dip in your hands when you form the loaves of biscotti.
Trim the ends so the batter is a perfect rectangle before it goes into the oven.
Aha, now were talking. Looking even better!
Time for dipping and decorating! All chocolate is melted over a double boiler. Since white chocolate is thicker, the biscottis are dipped in.
For dark chocolate covered biscotti, use a silicone spatula to "paint" the chocolate over the biscotti.
Time for the best part! Chocolate chips, craisins, caramelized nuts. The choices are endless.
Here they are decorated. Dried cranberries, mini chocolate chips and drizzled chocolate.
Give your friends a selection with different toppings, or you can skip the work and order them from Barnetts! Barnett’s Biscotti are all handmade, all-natural, unique and delicious. It makes the perfect gift.
