I love crunch and I love nuts, and come on friends, we’ve been over this again and again…you know how obsessed I am with chocolate. So here we have it, Chocolate Biscotti, it’s a virtual no-brainer!  And, as if this cookie is not already sheer perfection, yes, you guessed it, it’s dipped in a lovely chocolate glaze. Need I say more?

Well…of course I’ll say more, that’s what I do. I love to make biscotti simply because they’re so easy.  You shape the dough into logs, bake ‘em, slice them while they’re still warm, and then, bake ‘em again. These biscuits are really perfect to accompany a cup of coffee or a hot cup of tea, but seriously I eat six of these before the coffee’s even brewed. I’m so bad.

But I’m still not done touting the virtues of this humble confection. These little gems will store for at least a couple of weeks in an airtight container (yeah right, like these would last at my house for a couple of weeks!) And, if you’re like me and you love to send your friends and loved ones homemade treats, these will arrive at their intended destination fully intact. So what more could a girl ask for…well, maybe a flat stomach and longer legs, but that ‘aint gonna happen.

  1. Mama, these were absolutely delicious…the best chocolate flavor of anything I ever tasted…thank you for sharing. The photos are beautiful….PLEASE send more!!!!!

    1. Yes of course. Since you are using 2 baking sheets, one goes on the upper third rack, and the other goes on the lower third rack. If you have a double oven like I do, then you could bake each sheet with the rack in the middle position.

  2. If I had these gorgeous crunchy biscotti and a silky, satiny glaze (believe me,) I don’t need the longer legs & flatter stomach, because I’d be oh-so-very-content!

    Actually I gave up on bring taller about 6yrs back because my sweetie is lucky enough to be 6″9, whereas I’m a pretty standard 5″2. His whole family is genetically blessed at 6″4 and over. I’m just lucky to be the snack provider to such a wonderfully tall (and hungry) man!

  3. Sheryl, I had to come back to say upon recovering after almost fainting yesterday by the chocolate glory depicted above, I bookmarked the recipe. And pinned it. This morning’s mail revealed about 100 repins. Suffice it to say your chocolate fixation is a shared obsession. Brava!

  4. These look picture perfect! The choclaty goodness, the crunch, the chocolate coating….yum! I agree, biscotti are the ultimate care package cookie as well as the ultimate munch!
