Triple Chocolate Biscotti


Triple Chocolate Biscotti comes to be:

Sometimes baking inspiration isn’t planned; rather it’s brought about by a life experience. One time while shopping in local gourmet shop I found myself in the bakery section contemplating things “oh so sweet”. I picked up a small package of chocolate dipped biscotti and found them to be around $5.

In the ensuing battle between my craving and rational thought, which told me I could make many more biscotti for the same price, I decide to create the ultimate chocolate delight, Triple Chocolate Biscotti.

I did a quick review, in my mind, for the necessary ingredients and realized I had everything at home except the melting chocolate. I went to the chocolate department and bought what I needed for less than $5.

AND NOW FOR THE REST OF THE STORY!


Triple Chocolate Biscotti Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 stick (6 tablespoons) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup walnuts, chopped
  • 3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon confectioners' sugar
  • 4 oz of milk chocolate, melted

  3. In another bowl with an electric mixer beat together butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs and beat until combined well.
  4. Stir in flour mixture to form stiff dough. Stir in walnuts and chocolate chips.
  5. After mixing, scrape the dough out onto a lightly floured work surface and BRIEFLY knead it just until it comes together and the divide it in half. Shape half of dough at a time into a rectangle, 12 by 2 inches, sprinkle with confectioners' sugar and carefully transfer to prepared baking sheet.
  6. Place the baking sheet on the center rack of your oven and bake for about 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
