Double Chocolate Biscotti

The very BEST Double Chocolate Biscotti for your breakfast baking needs. A super easy homemade chocolate cookie, loaded with chocolate chips, and then twice baked. Yes, it’s true, they are actually baked twice, and they are SO VERY GOOD! Each cookie is then drizzled with some melted chocolate that little bit of extra oomph you’re looking for. There’s really nothing you can’t love about these sweet chocolate biscotti cookies. Each bite is crisp, extra chocolate-y, and pair perfectly with your favorite cup of coffee in the mornings (or even in the afternoons!). There’s no need to go out and buy them anymore. These are truly the very best biscotti you will eat! You can even serve it with some vanilla ice cream for an extra delicious dessert.

About The Recipe

Happy Friday you guys! Today is an absolutely great day because – well, we have cookies! And, not just any cookies. Oh, no no. We have biscotti. The only socially acceptable cookie to have for breakfast. And, being totally honest, these cookies are potentially the very best cookie recipe we will ever share with you. And I promise, it’s not an exaggeration! We both were so surprised at how great these turned out.

Think about it. No more waiting in a line to get your biscotti and coffee. All you need is a little bit of time, a few pantry staple ingredients, and then your favorite cup of coffee!

It really doesn’t get any better than this. Trust me.

But, what makes these so darn good? Instead of adding nuts to the dough, my mom had the amazing idea to use some almond flour! It sounds simple, but it makes a huge difference and it the needed secret ingredient for this recipe. It makes these cookies absolutely irresistible.

We are all pretty big biscotti fans in this house. Actually…just huge cookie fans. Okay, maybe I’m the huge cookie fan. There is nothing more comforting than a good cookie, you know? Especially when it’s double chocolate, served as breakfast, and so. good.

These cookies are kinda like all my favorite things combined into one.

But, I’ll be honest, they are pretty messy.

Nobody really mentioned that twice baked meant crumbs…everywhere.

It was kinda fun, though! After the first bake and letting it cool, we used a bread knife to slice them and we got to try a tiny bite then. They were good, but definitely a little softer than a traditional biscotti.

So, after the second bake (and some not-so-patient waiting), we made a fresh pot of coffee and tried our first ever attempt at biscotti.

It was actually kinda shocking just how good these cookies were. I had to break one in half and walk away. Otherwise, I probably would’ve eaten the whole plate.

From there, we knew we had to share them with all of you!
