Well, ladies and gents, I did warn you that more biscotti was coming.
It’s so simple to make, and it yields such high results! It’s a perfectly crisp little cookie, and then you dunk it in your favourite morning beverage, and it becomes the best morning snack (or mid-afternoon snack… or after-dinner snack… Let’s just say it goes well at any time of the day!)
I found this double chocolate biscotti recipe from Pinterest, and the original recipe is here. With a blog name like “Chocolate, Chocolate and More”, I knew we were going to be on to something good.
I still can’t believe how easy biscotti is to make! This dough took me ten minutes, tops, to whip together. It had to bake for longer than it take to make the dough! I call that an easy recipe. The only difference I made is swapped the dark cocoa powder for regular, because I was all out of dark. Not much of a difference, though, because it was still double chocolate to me!
So, the verdict about these biscotti is… go make them! What are you waiting for?
Yield: Approx. 20 biscotti
6 tbsp. butter, softened
1 c. sugar
¼ tsp. vanilla
2 c. flour
½ c. cocoa powder (dark or regular works)
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 c. chocolate chips (I used semi-sweet)
Preheat oven to 350°F, and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In the bowl of a mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream together the butter and sugar. Add in the eggs, one at a time, mixing after each addition. Add the vanilla, and combine again.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. Add to the wet ingredients in three additions, mixing after each addition. Fold in the chocolate chips.
Form into a log, about 12 inches by 4 inches. Place dough log onto baking sheet, and bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes.
Remove from oven, let sit for five minutes, then cut into slices, and place cut side down. Bake for 8 minutes, then turn cookies and bake for an additional 5 minutes.
Cool completely on a cookie rack, and store in an airtight container. Serve with a warm beverage (tea, coffee, hot chocolate), and dunk away!
