Easy Chocolate Chip Biscotti Recipe

A deliciously easy biscotti recipe that uses mini chocolate chips for a bit of chocolate in every bite! This biscotti recipe is incredible when dipped in a cup of coffee for a mid-day snack.

If you are new around here you will soon learn that I am obsessed with biscotti – any flavor, any type, I can’t get enough of it! My favorite to date is my Gingerbread Biscotti, but this new one is quickly climbing the ranks.

I was eating a chewy chocolate chip cookie a few weeks before the holidays and thought to myself, how freaking good would it be to turn this cookie into a biscotti recipe? I mean, everyone has a fave recipe for a chocolate chip cookie and I wanted to create a new one to add to your recipe box.

This biscotti is perfectly crunchy, and because we use mini chocolate chips, you get a taste of chocolate in every single bite. You could even go one step further and dip half the cookie in melted chocolate!

How to store biscotti

The trick to storing these biscotti is ensuring they have completely cooled before transferring to your container of choice. If they are still warm when you store them the cookies will lose their crunch.

I prefer to put mine between layers of parchment in a tightly sealed container and then putting them in the freezer (if I won’t be gifting or enjoying immediately).

If I know that I will need some of the cookies in a few days I will simply leave the container on the counter. When stored in the freezer the biscotti will easily last for 6 months without loosing their flavor – I do this every year with mine and have never had an issue.

When storing the cookies on the counter, as long as they are in a sealed container, they will stay fresh for about 2 weeks. This way they can easily be grabbed to enjoy with a cup of hot chocolate for a delicious evening treat!

Tips and Tricks for the perfect Chocolate Chip Biscotti

Believe it or not biscotti is actually a really easy cookie recipe to make. There are a couple of basic things to keep in mind when preparing this recipe;

First off, always make sure you are using the freshest baking powder as this will ensure the cookies get the rise you are looking for.

Also, for this particular biscotti I recommend using mini chocolate chips to help the chocolate mix evenly throughout your batter. If you don’t have mini chocolate chips on hand you can use regular ones, just give them a quick chop beforehand.

You will also want to mix your ingredients thoroughly to combine, but not overmix. I KNOW this is a hard one sometimes, just remember that it is okay to see a little flour in the batter still.

Lastly, when it comes time to adding in your chocolate chips you will want to do that by hand with either a silicone spatula or a wooden spoon.
