Fantastic Double Chocolate-Pecan Biscotti

"Since biscotti is a huge favorite at my house I am always searching for good biscotti recipes, this one is fantastic! --- if you make biscotti and love chocolate, then this is a recipe you should try! --- since the batter is quite stiff this dough is best prepared on a heavy-duty stand mixer, the recipe can be completely doubled to make four logs, they will keep tightly covered at room temperature for one week, or frozen for one month, feel free to use any other chopped nuts that you desired, walnuts work great with this also :)"

  1. I am a regular biscotti maker, and find it hard to find a simle, never fail recipe, however this one is great! It is super easy and turns out perfect everytime!
  2. I had a lot of baking to do and a long drive ( 22 hours) ahead, so I made these, froze them for three days, loaded the car and drove for two days. We opened up the container over coffee two days after my arrival ( no refrigeration whatsoever) and mmmmm, these were fabulous. Definitely a keeper. Thanks for sharing!
  3. I just made this recipe, followed the directions exactly. The biscotti came out so dry that when I tied to cut the log the pieces crumbled. Not only did I waste my time making these, but I also wasted money buying the ingredients. I recommend picking another chocolate biscotti recipe if this is what you want to make. This is the first time I have ever had problems with an online recipe, and I have been baking and cooking for years.
  4. I've never made biscotti before but this was a huge success! Directions were simple and easy to follow. Results were perfect! The biggest hassle was trying to find my ingredients and the whisk attachment to my food processor :) Will definitely make again!
  5. I make these in Summer in all flavors and then seal in a canning jar using my FoodSaver.. Lasts, in a cool pantry (basement) till Xmas and stay very fresh!!!!!


  1. I made these for a friend for Christmas last year & he loved them. I am giving them 4 stars instead of 5 only because I used high quality dark chocolate instead of cocoa & chocolate chips.
  2. If you like biscotti, or if you like chocolate, try this recipe. Honestly, even if you don't like either, make the recipe! Someone in your life will undoubtedly scarf these up and love you forever for making them; they're really really good and fairly simple to put together. I made them just as written, but used my own muscle rather than an electric mixer and parchment paper instead of buttering a cookie sheet, and regular chips in lieu of mini ones... and I just realized now I didn't do the confectioners' sugar bit, but mine turned out just fine. I can't think of a substantial change I'd suggest making. I really highly recommend these for packages too. I sent them to my best friend, across the country, who is finishing grad school, and they held up perfectly.
