I've been craving chocolate since yesterday and thought about a batch of chocolate chip cookies or trying something different. The wind is still cold so making a new biscotti recipe to have with a cup of green tea sounded like a nice alternative to turning the furnace back on and curing my chocolate craving. I always use dark cocoa just because it's my preference and I like the dark chocolate color and flavor but using regular will work just as well. It was very tempting just to dig into this before I sliced for the second baking.
Brownie Toffee Biscotti
Combine in a large bowl:
1 3/4 cup flour
1/3 cup double dutch dark cocoa
2/3 cup sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
In a small bowl combine:
1/2 cup melted butter, slightly cooled
1 tsp vanilla
Gradually add butter mixture into flour mixture until combined. The dough will be crumbly. Turn out onto a lightly flour surface and knead. Add in 1/2 cup of milk chocolate toffee bits and roll into a 12" log x 3" wide. Place on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Bake for a half hour at 325°. Cool for 15 minutes. Slice at an angle into 1/2" slices. Place back on parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes on each side at 300°. Store in an air tight container.
