Be Festive! {Recipe: Deck the Halls Biscotti}

I just read something that says there are 35 days until Christmas! Can you believe it? I’m going to continue focusing on Thanksgiving until next Friday, then it’s going to be all Christmas all the time around our house. It’s my absolute favorite holiday and I can’t wait!

For the first time ever I’ve already bought a couple of Christmas presents. I took advantage of the Erin Condren 50% off sale the other day and got my kids teachers some personalized desk pads. I thought that was a really great gift but wanted to add a little more. 

I’ve decided these Deck the Halls Biscotti from the Bright Ideas website would be great to give as well… a little something delicious and homemade along with something personalized just for them!

There are a lot of other fun and festive recipes to choose from featuring the holiday M&M’S® Brand Chocolate Candies. Make sure to check out their recipe page for more fun gift ideas or holiday treats!

For now, sit down with a hot cup of coffee and check out this festive Deck the Halls Biscotti recipe below! Enjoy!
