A brownie-like biscotti that tastes great with a cup of coffee. Drizzle with more chocolate if desired. Especially popular in the winter time when coffee and chocolate taste so much better. Enjoy!

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

  • Combine vanilla extract and espresso powder in a small bowl; mix until espresso powder is dissolved.

  • Sift flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt into a bowl; mix in chocolate chips.

  • Whisk vanilla mixture, sugar, eggs, and oil together in a large bowl. Add flour mixture; stir, by hand if needed, until dough comes together and is thick and stiff.

  • Divide dough into 2 equal pieces and place onto the baking sheets. Shape each piece into a log as long as the baking sheet; press down with wet hands to about 1/2 inch thickness.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until firm, about 25 minutes. Remove from oven and cool until easily handled, about 5 minutes.

  • Move cooled logs to a cutting board and slice into 1/2-inch long slices with a serrated knife. Return the slices to the baking sheets, placing them on their sides.

  • Bake until dry, about 6 minutes per side. Remove from oven and let cool until hardened on wire racks.

I'm just learning to bake, so my recipes aren't picture perfect, but these are excellent. I didn't have any instant coffee or espresso but they didn't need it. I dipped them in Ghirardelli dark chocolate then dipped some in crushed chocolate-covered almonds. Mmm Read More

Admittedly I am not a Super Baker and I never tried to bake biscotti before but these Sinful Chocolate ones sounded so darn good and I needed a chocolate cookie to round out the Christmas display of home-baked treats. SO having said all that in order to temper my review I am going to tell you that either 375 degrees was TOO HIGH a temp for the oven OR 25 minutes was TOO LONG a baking time. As I noted I never baked biscotti before so I had to go on blind trust in the recipe. I'm so sorry to say because I would rather not review than to give a less than 5 stars but if you read this whole review either turn your oven down or start looking for burning after 15 minutes. To be fair to Chef V I will make another batch later today will adjust my baking temp to 350 will keep an eagle eye on the oven and I hope the second attempt will be successful. By the way the prep on this recipe is super easy (so I don't really mind trying again). Read More

The recipe is easy to follow. Cookies are very good. I added almonds. If I make this again I will chill the dough before making the logs. It was quite difficult to handle. Read More

Pretty easy, although they take a lot of time in the kitchen. I only got 24 biscotti out of this recipe, so consider doubling it if you want 40. Read More

This is delicious; the only thing I would say is the initial 25 minute baking time was a little too long. I considered a white chocolate drizzle but decided to go with the mint. I'm glad I did!! Read More
