Your coffee break is about to get a lot sweeter with our homemade double chocolate biscotti, featuring dark and semi-sweet varieties.



  • 1/3 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour, divided
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup coarsely chopped dark chocolate
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped semi-sweet chocolate


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, beat butter with an electric mixer on medium speed for about 30 seconds, until fluffy. Add sugar, cocoa powder, and baking powder, and beat until combined.
  3. Next, beat in eggs until combined. Add 1 1/4 cup of flour, and beat on medium speed until combined. Stir in remaining flour, salt, and both types of chocolate with a spoon.
  4. Divide dough in half. Shape each portion into a log 9 inches long, and place about 4 inches apart on a greased cookie sheet. Flatten them slightly until about 2 inches wide.
  5. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted near the center of each comes out clean.
  6. Place the cookie sheet on a wire rack and cool completely, for about 1 hour.
  7. Line a clean sheet pan with parchment paper. Slice dough at a slight angle into approximately 1/2 to 1-inch-thick pieces. Place cut side down on the baking sheet. Bake for 7-9 minutes on each side, or for about 14-18 minutes total, until slightly darkened and crisp.
  8. Cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely. Cookies can be stored in airtight containers at room temperature for 2-3 weeks.
