Double Chocolate Biscotti Recipe

  • 2/3 cup whole almonds, toasted and chopped
  • 1 2/3 cups flour
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 3 large eggs
  • 3 large egg yolks
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a seasoned baking stone and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl sift together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
  3. Stir in the sugar.
  4. Add two of the whole eggs, the egg yolks, and vanilla.
  5. Mix with an electric mixer on low speed until combined.
  6. Add the nuts and chocolate chips and beat on low speed.
  7. Divide the dough in half and place each on the baking pan.
  8. Shape each half into a 2 1/2 inch by 12 inch flat log.
  9.  Space them at least 2 inches apart because they will spread as they bake.
  10. Beat the remaining whole egg and brush it over the logs.
  11. Place the baking sheet on the center rack of your oven and bake for about 33-35 minutes, or until the logs are firm to the touch.
  12. Place the baking sheet on a wire rack and allow the logs to cool completely.
  13. Lower the oven temperature to 325 degrees F.
  14. Place the logs on a cutting board.
  15. Using a serrated knife, cut the logs into ½” -1” thick slices.
  16. Place biscotti slices on the baking sheet cut side down. Bake the biscotti until they are crisp, about 10 minutes.
  17. Place baking sheet on a wire rack and allow the biscotti to cool completely on the sheet.
Makes about 24 double chocolate biscotti

 If you like Biscotti, but have never made it, you really should try this recipe. The recipe is simple and easier than you may think. If you're not familiar with it, Biscotti is like a crunchy cookie that's not real sweet. They are perfect for dipping in your coffee and are SO good!

  2. Lisa, I'd love to link my Biscotti up, but how do I do that? Can you explain? This may seem like a dumb question :)

    Thanks,

  3. Sorry it took so long to get back to you. I've been without Internet for a couple of days. I hold the linky party every weekend starting at 5PM PST on Friday. At the end of the post (after all the pictures) is a little blue tab with a frog's head on it. All you have to do is click on it, then type in the URL of your post, the name of your treat, and your e-mail address. Follow along to select a picture and you'll be good to go. I'm delighted that you'll be joining me.
