My family loves biscotti, so I brought together peanut butter chips and chocolate chips to make another flavor for our biscotti jar. Hubby claims that these are amazing, hence the name Amazing Peanut Butter Cup Biscotti. Wrapped in cellophane bags, they are perfect for bake sales.

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

    Advertisement
  • Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

  • Mix the milk and vanilla extract together in a small bowl; set aside.

  • Combine the flour and baking powder in a separate bowl.

  • Beat the peanut butter, brown sugar, and white sugar with an electric mixer in a large bowl until smooth.

  • Add the eggs one at a time, allowing each egg to blend into the peanut butter mixture before adding the next.

  • Pour in the flour mixture alternately with the milk, mixing until just incorporated.

  • Fold in the peanut butter chips; mixing just enough to evenly combine.

  • Divide the dough into 4 equal parts.

  • Roll each section into a 4x5-inch rectangle about 1/2-inch thick.

  • Transfer the dough pieces onto the prepared baking sheets.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until firm to the touch, about 25 minutes.

  • Place biscotti loaves on wire racks to cool.

  • Reduce oven temperature to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).

  • Cut each loaf into 1/2-inch slices.

  • Return the slices to the baking sheets with the cut sides up.

  • Bake in the oven until biscotti are dry, about 10 minutes on each side.

  • Cool in the pans for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.

  • Melt the chocolate chips in a microwave-safe glass or ceramic bowl in 30-second intervals, stirring after each interval, until melted and smooth, 1 to 3 minutes (depending on your microwave).

  • Dip the cooled biscotti into the melted chocolate. Set the biscotti onto parchment paper, and allow to set, about 20 minutes.

Definitely not a biscotti texture. It is more like a cookie than biscotti. Very thick and dry. Sorry but would not make this again. Read More

These are incredible! A coworker brought these into work and I just had to have the recipe. He directed me here and I was not disappointed. I didn't add the peanut butter chips and it still had plenty of peanut butter flavor. I also used a mix of semi-sweet and bittersweet chips because I didn't want them to be overly sweet. Amazing recipe that is sure to be crowd pleaser. Read More

An incredibly delicious peanuty biscotti. The recipe is perfect! The dough was so easy to work with and baked up with bakery quality results. After I sliced my biscotti and returned them to the oven for 10 minutes on each side when I turned the oven off I laid them on the oven rack and left the door open while they and the oven cooled to crisp them a little more. Once cooled I put the chocolate chips in a baggy to melt in the microwave as instructed smooshing the bag till the chips were melted made a tiny snip on one end and drizzled the chocolate across in a zigzag pattern. This recipe is a keeper! Thanks SHORECOOK for sharing. (recipe made for RECIPE GROUP ) Read More

I made these for Recipe Group. This was my first time making biscotti and this recipe turned out beautifully. Next time I may add just a few chocolate chips to the batter for a little extra chocolate but this recipe really didn't need any changes. I love the pairing of peanut butter and chocolate. Yummy!

Another 5 star recipe from Shorecook! I had never made biscotti before and decided I would give this recipe a try. The crunchiness the peanut butter flavor along with the melted chocolate chips made for a tasty cookie. My whole house smelled sooo good while this was baking. For a more festive holiday look I sprinkled decorative Christmas candies on top of the melted chocolate chips. A definite keeper and will be on my Christmas cookie tray. Thank you for this AMAZING recipe. Christmas blessings to you and your family Shorecook! Read More
