My daughter was eating breakfast this morning, her usual breakfast of champions: Cocoa Krispies. She finished the box and handed it to me to break down and recycle. As I turned the box over I read the recipe on the back: Cocoa Krispies Biscotti. I had to read it twice. Really? Is that right?
Now I am quite desperate for chocolate as I sit here on Day 13 but that insults my intelligence, my Italian heritage and any skill I may or may not have as a cook. I just had to write this. With all due respect to the Kellogg’s company, that just should not be. I read the ingredients and at least it asked for real butter and cocoa powder. Maybe I should not be so judgemental, so quick to react. After all, I am on a tight wire with this lack of chocolate.
Even so, I will pass on trying this recipe. I wish anyone luck with whomever does bake these biscotti and if you do, and they turn out great, let me know…..after Lent!
