How to Make Dark Chocolate Walnut Biscotti

Biscotti is a cookie that is twice baked. The first step to making biscotti is to mix all of the ingredients together. The easiest way, since its a thick batter, is to use a stand mixer. Simply put all of the ingredients in the mixer with the paddle attachment and mix until combined. If you don’t have a stand mixer, use a spatula or your hands to combine the batter.

Next, move the batter onto a parchment lined sheet pan and shape into a loaf. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes or until lightly golden. Once it is removed from the oven move to a cutting board and let cool.

Once the biscotti is cooled completely, slice into 1/2 inch thick slices and place back on the baking sheet with parchment paper. Return to the oven at 350 degrees for 8-12 minutes or until slightly crispy on the top. Finally, let cool and store in an airtight container at room temperature.

Frequently Asked Questions

What if I have a nut allergy or I am making this for someone with a nut allergy?

If you have a nut allergy or will be serving these to someone with an allergy, cut out the nuts and add extra chocolate or dried fruit in place of the nuts.

Can I use a different kind of chocolate?

Of course! Try semi sweet chocolate chips, milk chocolate chips or even white chocolate chips.

How do I store biscotti?

Store biscotti at room temperature in an airtight container for up to 10 days.
