Directions

{{model.addEditText}} Print
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Beat white sugar, butter, and cocoa powder together with an electric mixer in a large bowl until creamy and smooth. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Mix chocolate liqueur and peppermint extract into the sugar-egg mixture.
  3. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt in a separate bowl. Slowly mix flour mixture into sugar-egg mixture until fully incorporated; fold mint chocolate chips into the dough.
  4. Divide dough into 4 equal parts and shape into logs. Arrange the logs on the prepared baking sheets.
  5. Dip a spatula in water and use it to smooth surface of the logs.
  6. Bake biscotti logs in the preheated oven until firm to the touch, 30 to 35 minutes. Cool biscotti logs completely on wire racks.
  7. Reduce oven temperature to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).
  8. Cut biscotti logs into 3/4-inch slices and arrange on baking sheets.
  9. Bake in the oven until biscotti are dry, about 10 minutes per side. Cool completely on wire racks.
  10. Place candy melts in a wide microwave-safe bowl; heat in microwave until melted, about 2 1/2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds.
  11. Dip cooled biscotti in the melted white candy; sprinkle with crushed candy canes.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:
  • If candy canes are not available, a bag of hard peppermint candy may be substituted.
  • Crush candy canes by placing in a resealable plastic bag (unzipped) and hitting with a meat tenderizing tool.

I can't beleive no one has rated this recipe. It is delicious and I followed it to the letter. They will look pretty on my christmas table of goodies. I enjoy anything SHORECOOK comes up with.

For taste, I would give this a four and a half. Very good. The directions leave a lot to be desired, though, so I am bumping it down to a three. What are the approximate dimensions of the logs? ...

I didn't have peppermint extract, so I used one drop of peppermint oil per batch and doubled the recipe. It has been renamed "Christmas Crack" in my house. People beg for this biscotti!

These are amazing!

Love it! I couldn't find Godiva Original so I used Godiva Double Chocolate. Also, I used the chocolate/mint candy canes and Andes candies. Will definitely make again.
