Yield
3 dozen (serving size: 2 biscotti)

Vanilla extract enhances the dusky mix of cocoa and minichips in these twice-baked slice cookies, which deliver deep chocolate taste.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°.

Step 2

Weigh or lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour and next 6 ingredients (through salt) in a medium bowl, stirring with a whisk. Combine vanilla, eggs, and egg white in a large bowl, stirring with a whisk. Add flour mixture to egg mixture; stir until well blended. Divide dough in half. Turn dough out onto a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. With floured hands, shape each dough half into a 12-inch-long roll; pat to 1/2-inch thickness.

Step 3

Bake at 350° for 22 minutes. Remove rolls from baking sheet; cool 10 minutes on a wire rack. Cut each roll diagonally into 18 (1/2-inch) slices. Carefully stand slices upright on baking sheet. Bake biscotti an additional 15 minutes or until almost firm (biscotti will be slightly soft in center but will harden as they cool). Remove biscotti from baking sheet; cool completely on wire rack.

Rich chocolate flavor! When cooked the amount of time recommended, it tasted slightly burned, but when I lessened the time, it was soft like a brownie. Nevertheless, very rich satisfying chocolate flavor!

This was my first time making biscotti and they turned out really well. They are very chocolately without being too sweet. I used 70% cacao cocoa powder instead of regular cocoa powder. I will make more, drizzle with white chocolate, put in Xmas mugs, and wrap in clear cellophane for office Christmas gifts.

I made this recipe exactly as written, EXCEPT only using 3/4 cup sugar instead of 1 cup. They were plenty sweet. I whisked the dry ingredients together - this is a good idea to ensure that there are no lumps of sugar, cocoa or flour. I just whisked the eggs, egg white and vanilla in the KitchenAid stand mixer, removed the bowl from the mixer, then added the dry ingredients, and mixed by hand with a rubber spatula. Once the dough came together, I kneaded it by hand just until the ingredients were uniformly blended - I didn't want to overdo it. Cooking times seemed to be spot on. Very chocolatey and satisfying. I may experiment with additions in the future (nuts, cranberries, coconut, etc.) I used Ghirardelli mini semi-sweet chocolate morsels and Trader Joe's Unsweetened Cocoa Powder.

This was my first time making biscotti and these turned out fantastic. I just made them last night, and my husband has already requested that I make them again. They're great on their own or with tea, but I think I am going to dip a few of them in some white chocolate and sprinkles for take-home bags for our holiday party. I will definitely make these again.

This looks so good but I couldn't get it right. I want mine to taste like the biscotti I got from Gina's Homemade. (www.ginashomemade.com/products.shtml) Those biscotti are so rich. I might have overcooked these chocolate biscotti. I think it's me - not the recipe. Try, try again.

My first time making biscotti but it was so easy and so yummy! I'd definitely plan to make them again and think they'll become a tradition. We might add a little bit more flour as they went a bit flat this time but they were still amazing!! We used Hershey's dark chocolate cocoa instead of regular.

Excellent chocolate biscotti. I give packages of different homemade biscotti as holiday gifts and this one has made the cut. I kneaded 7 or 8 times on a floured surface before transferring to a baking sheet. And I did not attempt to stand the biscotti up - baked 10 min on each side.

Easy to make. Made twice and turned out great each time. Followed the recipe exactly. What I like most is the low calorie and fat content. Truly a dieters dream. I serve this when I have guests with coffee or tea. Or just for me when I have coffee.

These flattened out a lot during baking, so I think I'd only flatten them to 3/4 inch before baking, or make one big roll instead of two (they're so small!). They crumbled and broke while cutting.

I doubled the recipe and used my my kitchen-aid mixer. This was the easiest recipe ever. Save yourself some time and forget the wisk. The biscotti's were GREAT! I look forward to seeing some feedback on the use of the kitchen-aid mixer. HAPPY HOLIDAY'S to everyone!!!!
