Chocolate Peppermint Biscotti


My first time to bake biscotti. I found this recipe on www.backforseconds.com. I dipped one end of the biscotti into the melted white chocolate instead of drizzling over the entire piece. Next time, I think I may use mini chocolate chips instead of the regular size. These were fun to bake and the guests enjoyed them. These would be wonderful to add to your holiday baking list!

1/2 cup unsalted butter (softened)
1 1/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cups cocoa powder
2 eggs
1/2 t. salt
1 t. baking soda
2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips

Topping:
4 oz. white chocolate
2 candy canes (crushed)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugar. Mix in the cocoa powder. Mix in the eggs until well combined. Add salt and soda and mix well. Add flour and mix until combined. Stir in chocolate chips.

Form dough into a loaf shape about 12 x 4" and bake on a silicone baking mat or parchment cookie sheet for 30 minutes.
Slice the loaf into 3/4-1" slices and bake for 5 more minutes with the cut side down. Flip the cookies and bake 5 more minutes. Let cool.

Drizzle the top of each biscotti with the melted white chocolate and sprinkle with crushed candy canes. Allow to set up before storing in a sealed container.
