Chocolate Peppermint Biscotti

Chocolate Peppermint Biscotti
The Finished Product

I found this recipe years ago for a super yummy biscotti. It is so good that my kids even like it without anything to dunk in!


1/2 softened butter
1 1/3 cups sugar
3 eggs
1/2 tsp peppermint extract
3 cups AP flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup crushed peppermint mini-candy canes
1/2 cup mini semisweet chocolate chips
melted colored chocolate


Mix butter, sugar, eggs, and peppermint extract. Then blend in baking soda, salt, and flour. Then blend in crushed peppermint pieces and mini-chips. Yes, the batter is extremely stiff so I use my stand mixer.

Then dump dough onto either a greased cookie sheet or a silpat (or equivalent) lined sheet. Cut the dough in half and form into logs 10 inches by 2 inches. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 30 to 35 minutes or until they are golden brown. Then cool the logs for 15 minutes.

Next cut the logs into 1/2 inch slices and place back on the cookie sheet on their cut sides. Bake at 350 degrees for another 15 minutes or until lightly brown and crisp. I don’t wait to long since my kids like to eat them plain;). then cool on a cooling rack.

Next melt the colored chocolate in the microwave. I microwave the Meltables at 30 second increments until it is really loose and drizzable. Then I just drizzle the chocolate over the cookies. You can also dip them in semisweet chocolate (my husband’s favorite) and sprinkle with more crushed candies.
