The whole ritual of making my morning cup of coffee makes me happy. Selecting the perfect coffee cup to stage the scene for the day.

You know… “Let’s Put the Fun Back in Dysfunctional” for a silly day or “But First, Coffee” for a long day or just “Back Off” for a long, unrelenting day.

Next comes selecting the flavor. Some days are a regular coffee kind of day, others a high octane and some for flavors. Tried and true vanilla happens to my favorite flavors.

Since I like my coffee with just a little bit of cream, pairing it with something just slightly sweet is always welcome, so biscotti is the answer.

Biscotti are little biscuits with a tender crumb, but solid enough that you can dip them in your coffee or tea without breaking. Almost like a shortbread.

Most biscotti recipes add loads of chocolate, nuts and other flavors. But I wanted less chocolate and more coffee for my shortbread treats so I nixed the chocolate chips and nuts and went for full vanilla coffee flavor with just a light drizzle of dark chocolate. Vanilla Mocha Biscotti!

Vanilla Mocha Biscotti have become such a hit at my house that I now make them for hostess gifts, house warmings and more. They are fabulous served with coffee at a dinner party and even more so for a fancy afternoon tea. They are also tasty served alongside Potica.

Bonus, they are SO easy to make!

Questions and Reviews

    1. Hi Kathy, just vanilla flavored coffee beans or vanilla flavored coffee- either a K cup or ground coffee it fine. If you have plain coffee you can add a touch of vanilla extract.

    1. Great question, when it is totally cooled, otherwise the chocolate will just melt off instead of set.

  1. 5 stars
    Turned out great ?. I may make the coffee stronger next time. Mine crumbled a little when cutting but still delicious! Will def make again as gifts!

  2. I made these today. The first batch didn’t get very big. Probably because my baking powder was from 2017! They were still delicious!

    1. Hi Karen- I have serious preggo brain going on, thanks for pointing that out. The recipe has been updated. Add coffee when you add eggs and vanilla.

  3. 5 stars
    I’m a little embarrassed to admit that I’ve never even attempted to make biscotti before. You make it sound easy enough, and they’re certainly beautiful!

  4. 5 stars
    These are great! You’re right, it’s nice to have something just a little sweet with my coffee in the morning, so this is a perfect pairing. Love it.
