Let me just tell you, these are downright scrumptious with coffee. I should know, I’m snacking on one right now.
I have friends who do smoothies, or tea, or even hot chocolate in the morning. I cannot imagine the morning (or afternoon… sometimes the evenings) without coffee.
It wasn’t always like this. I managed to make through my twenties, a job that started at 6am, even having a baby before I became a caffeine junkie.
But after I became a SAHM, the coffee intake started to slowly creep up. And I noticed something. Sure it was tasty and made for a lovely warm beverage in the morning, but it kept. me. awake. It made me productive.
Like, loads more than in my twenties.
I felt like I had discovered a secret and everyone else was already taking full advantage. Ok, not everyone, but you get my point. It made me a morning person. It helps me to power through the 3pm…5pm… sometimes even 8pm stretch. Hey, parents have long days.
And I can’t get enough of coffee treats to pair with my favorite beverage. Biscotti is so perfect, the way it just melts into your coffee. And yet it’s still crunchy? Yum.
I mixed SNICKERS® bars into my favorite chocolate biscotti recipe, and the results were magical. Really.
Little chewy bits of SNICKERS® bars throughout crunchy, chocolate pastries.
Plus, this is totally breakfast food. And we all know how important it is to eat breakfast.
It’s really a public service that I make time everyday for coffee and some munchies in the morning. I am not one of those people who can go hours without eating, or forgets a meal. You could probably guess that by this blog.
These are the perfect snack for me…. light, delicious, and keeps mama happy.
