When the cold weather rolls around, it's always nice to curl up with a big mug of cocoa, and an awesome cookie only makes things better. Crunchy and light, biscotti are most outstanding when dunked into a hot beverage. These tasty treats are loaded with chocolate and white chocolatey goodness and are sure to be a crowd pleaser.
