Dance Moms... do you watch the Lifetime Show? If you haven't, don't. It's terrible. But as a dance mom, it's totally addicting.
With some 13 years of Dance "Momness" under my belt, I consider myself somewhat of an expert on the subject. I've done it all, overnight rhinestoning sessions, minutes before going onstage tap shoe and costume repair, duct taped pieces in place, and ultimate hairstyles, all followed by rivers of tears as I sit in the audience watching these talented girls live their passion.
I'd always considered myself a soccer mom, but as my son grew up and Liv began competitive dance, I embraced my Dance Mom life, and clearly explain to everyone I meet that we are nothing like the catty, mean moms you see on tv.
Ever since creating Miss Abbie's (we have our own, much more amazing Miss Abbie) Amazing Race Biscotti, biscotti has been the most requested recipe. This week Taylor H. sent a request for Chocolate Biscotti with "lots" of chocolate chips. Easy enough. But would a chocolate drizzle be too much? Our texts went as follows...
Me: "So... if I were to make a Chocolate Biscotti with lots of chocolate chips, would a you want a chocolate drizzle on top??"
Taylor: "Who wouldn't???!!!!"
All righty then... drizzle it is! Tweaking our Nutella Biscotti recipe to pure, unadulterated chocolate, I set Liv to the task of adding the chocolate drizzle. As she does on stage, her drizzle was done with passion. Thinking perhaps it was too much, we allowed the chocolate to set, then did our own taste test.
Too much? Not a chance! Rich with the perfect biscotti bite, Taylor's Ultimate Chocolate Rehearsal Biscotti disappeared in a flash at the girls first competition rehearsal and received the esteemed score of Platinum Plus. Beat that Abbie Lee Miller!
