Put together a beautiful and delicious Coffee Lover's Gift Basket with Chocolate Almond Biscotti and Dunkin Donuts® Coffees on your holiday list this year!
Growing up, there was one thing above all else that signified the start to a great day, the scent of coffee brewing. My dad was always up at the crack of dawn getting around for work. Nowadays, he sleeps in a bit, but being home for the holidays still means the delicious scent of freshly brewed coffee wafting through the air.
My parents love their Dunkin Donuts® coffee, so it's the perfect gift for them (and lots of other folks on my list!) This year, I wanted to make them a special Christmas morning coffee basket. My mom always makes the most amazing holidays meals, and this Chocolate Almond Biscotti is the perfect precursor to her heavenly brunch spread. You're going to love how easily the pretty Coffee Lover's Gift Basket with Chocolate Almond Biscotti all comes together!
