Triple Chocolate Biscotti

Triple Chocolate Biscotti

BiscottiBiscotti, also called Cantuccini in Tuscany, are oblong shaped almond Italian cookies that originated in the city of Prato.  It’s name, Biscotti, literally means twice cooked.

These twice baked cookies are dry, crunchy, and made to be dipped in a drink, traditionally Vin Santo, a sweet Italian dessert wine.  Today Biscotti is made in a variety of flavors and can be dipped in white or dark chocolate.  They can be dipped in coffee, milk, or any other drink.  Of course they’re also pretty good dry.

My family loves Biscotti, specially when dipped in cold milk or hot chocolate.  I love to dip it in my morning cup of cappuccino!  I’d always thought they’d be difficult and time consuming to make.  I thought I’d have to roll each cookie into it’s oblong shape.  I was pleasantly surprised to learn that they are super easy to make and you don’t have to shape each cookie.

I’ve been playing around with different flavors and came up with our favorite, Triple Chocolate Biscotti.  They are super yummy!  Best of all you don’t spend hours kneading cookie dough and shaping them into flat oblong cookies.  You can whip up a batch in about an hour or so and have some ready for dessert.  Did I mention they’re great with ice cream?

I like to use the best quality ingredients for most of my baking, this is specially true for chocolates.  I usually use Valrhona Cocoa Powder and Guittard White & Semi-Sweet Chips.  They really do taste better!  But if you can’t find these brands in your area you can use Hershey Cocoa Powder and whatever brand chips you can find.

Here’s my recipe for Triple Chocolate Biscotti!

6 Tbs. Butter, softened

1 Cup Sugar

2 Eggs

1/2 Tsp. Pure Vanilla Extract

2 Cups All Purpose Flour
