What better flavour for biscotti than chocolate? After all, biscotti is designed to be dunked into coffee, and chocolate and coffee are a great flavour combination. These Double Chocolate Biscotti are sure to make your coffee break extra delicious!

My daughter calls these biscotti “crunchy brownies.” It’s an apt description: biscotti are twice-baked, oblong-shaped cookies made intentionally dry and crunchy for dunking into coffee or tea — and these are made with a double dose of chocolate. I’m happy to say that they have nothing in common with the packaged biscotti sold in most coffee shops, which always taste like bricks. When you dunk these chocolate biscotti into a warm beverage, they soften, becoming rich, chocolaty and decadent.

The “double chocolate” portion of these biscotti comes from the combination of cocoa powder in the dough and the chocolate chips that are mixed into the dough. While any unsweetened cocoa powder will work, I like to use a Hershey’s natural cocoa powder for both colour and flavour. It gives the cookies such a deep, dark chocolate colour that’s really striking. Plus, there’s all that irresistible dark chocolate flavour!
