I love the holidays. I also love biscotti. So, for the holidays, here’s a chocolate and pistachio biscotti recipe!

I know I just repeated the same thing twice in the last sentence, but I like being clear! Ha! Ha!

This recipe is perfect to make with friends or kids on a Sunday morning at home when love is in the air. It’s a nice elegant dessert that pairs well with a cup of coffee or glass of milk.

Bon appétit!
