I've been looking for the "perfect" biscotti recipe for my Mom. I have taken a recipe that was ok and made some adjustments to suit what I wanted. They are fabulous and look great too!

Directions

  1. Pre-Heat oven to 350 degrees, making sure the rack is in the centre position. Line a baking sheet with parchment or wax paper *VERY IMPORTANT*.
  2. Combine Flour, Cocoa, White Sugar, Baking powder, salt, first measurement of chocolate chips in a large bowl.
  3. In a smaller bowl whisk eggs, butter and vanilla. Pour mixture into a well in the center of the dry ingredients. Mixing with a spatula until mixture is crumbly.
  4. Knead mixture together in bowl until combined. Dough will be crumbly, but should hold together.
  5. Form dough into a fat cigar shape and cut into two even halves.
  6. Form halves into 2 long cigar shapes approx 1" thick, 2" wide and 12" long each and place onto cookie sheet.
  7. Bake for 25 minutes turning the baking sheet half way through. When removed dough should be hard to touch and slightly browned.
  8. Reduce oven temperature to 300 degrees and allow biscotti to cool for 15 minutes.
  9. With a serrated knife, either cut biscotti on an angle into 1/2" pieces (smaller biscotti) or cut into half and then thirds (larger pieces). Place back onto cookie sheet with cut side up.
  10. Bake for another 12 minutes, then flip so other cut side is facing up and baking 12 more minutes.
  11. Remove from oven and allow to cool on cooling rack approximately 30 minutes.
  12. Melt Milk Chocolate waffers in the microwave 20 seconds, stir and another 30 seconds.
  13. 13. Place cooling rack on top of the cookie sheet used to bake on with parchment paper still in place. Drizzle melted chocolate over biscotti pieces, with the tops facing up.
  14. Repete with White Chocolate.
  15. Allow to set for 2 hours and serve. Store in an air tight container.
