Coconut and Dark Chocolate Chip Biscotti Recipe


I always think summer and Pina Coladas when I think coconut. This biscotti recipe is definitely for coconut lovers! Serve it for a lighter dessert at your next cookout or party with a signature drink of frozen Pina Coladas.

The coconut flakes are first toasted to bring out the flavor in these cookies. This recipe does contain alcohol. Malibu Rum is a coconut flavored rum. However, you do not have to make this with alcohol. Coconut extract can be used in place of the coconut rum. If using the extract, use 1 teaspoon or 1 tablespoon depending on your desired strength of flavor. Then add about a 1/4 cup of water.

If you have never tried making biscotti, I still think they are the easiest cookie to make. One batch makes about 30 cookies. And you can make them ahead of time and freeze them in a freezer storage bag for up to 2 months. They only need a few minutes to thaw from the freezer.
