Hi guys! How is baking going on? I thought of making the first move by posting Almond Sprinkles Biscotti. Wondering what am I talking about? You guys know what I am talking about if you read my previous blog. I hope all of you got a chance to look at my announcement on Kid’s Delight event with the theme of birthday party treats. I know you are all excited about your entries for the event!
Guess what? I made Almond Sprinkles Biscotti for my kid and he totally loved it. In fact, he keeps bugging me to make more. So, I thought why not make it a kid’s delight special recipe for birthday party treat? Oh, how we love almonds! The tale of almond love is never ending. No matter how old we grow, we still search for almonds in biscuits and cookies. Imagine kid’s desperation for almonds.
What more makes Almond Sprinkles Biscotti special for kids? It’s obviously sprinkles. Colorful substances always looks attractive for kids. I used sprinkles of various colors and various shapes for this recipe. This is one of the reasons why my kid goes crazy about these biscottis. We know that kid’s appetite grows for the things that look colorful and this is one of them.
So, what are you waiting for? Here is your chance to bake Almond Sprinkles Biscotti for your kid and win the ‘best mummy award’. Take a look at the recipe and start baking!
