It’s almost Halloween. The time of the year where I make baking look gross. It’s a time when I want you to be thinking that my bakes are disgusting. Litter box biscotti may look gross but they really are delicious. The flavours are a wonderful mix of chocolate and chai latte. Not only do they give the biscotti a realistic colour but they also taste great together. Kids and grown ups alike will love them.
Litter box biscotti are super easy to make and you can have your litter box creation ready for a party table in less than an hour (including cooling time!) The kids will delight in helping you craft these poop shaped treats too. It’s fun to bake but it’s even more fun to bake disgusting looking creations when you’re a kid!
It’s been great fun distributing these around the village. Especially to the younger kids who were really not sure about eating them. My disgustingly delicious Halloween creations have been devoured by all the local kids. Some of them even refused to eat the biscotti because they look too much like real turds in a litter box.
So if you’re having a Halloween party, or you just want to gross out the kids from your neighbourhood with a treat of litter box biscotti.
It makes the perfect gift for the trick or treaters!
