Subject: Triple Chocolate & Espresso Biscotti
 

Heavenly triple chocolate and espresso infused biscotti, the perfect accompaniment to a creamy cappuccino or caffe latte, or simply as a little treat on their own.

Ingredients – Makes around 30 Biscotti

Biscotti
450g plain flour
115g unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp baking soda
¾ tsp salt
85g unsalted butter, at room temperature
225g granulated sugar
2 large eggs
35ml freshly brewed espresso
170g good quality dark chocolate minimum of 70% cocoa solids, chopped
170g toasted nuts (walnuts/pecans/almonds – whatever your preference), chopped

Chocolate Swirls:
60g good quality milk chocolate
60g good quality white chocolate
35ml brewed espresso


Method
  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  2. Line two large baking trays with baking paper.
  3. Add the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt into a mixing bowl and whisk together until thoroughly combined.
  4. Add the butter to a large mixing bowl and beat using an electric mixer until light and fluffy.
  5. Add the sugar and beat again until a light, pale consistency is achieved.
  6. One by one, beat in the eggs ensuring one is completely combined before adding the next.
  7. Beat in the espresso.
  8. Add the dry ingredients from the other mixing bowl and place the mixer setting on low. Beat only until all ingredients are thoroughly mixed, taking care not to overwork the dough.
  9. Stir in the chocolate chunks and chopped nuts
  10. Halve the dough and form two loaves 3 inches apart on the lined baking tray approximately (each loaf should be approximately 15” x 2”).
  11. Place on the middle shelf of the preheated oven and bake for approximately 25 minutes, or until loaves are firm to the touch.
  12. Remove the tray from the oven and using a sharp serrated knife, cut the loaves into slices (approx. ½” per slice). Place the slices on the second lined baking tray and place into the oven. Bake for 5 minutes each side, until firm and crisp.
  13. Remove from the oven and transfer all biscotti onto a wire cooling rack. Retain the baking tray lined with parchment, as you’ll need this later.
  14. Once the biscotti have completely cooled, place them back on the baking tray.
  15. Place the milk chocolate, white chocolate and espresso into a heatproof bowl and gently heat over a pan of simmering water stirring occasionally until the chocolate has completely melted.
  16. Pour the melted chocolate into a piping bag and drizzle over the biscotti slices.
  17. Allow to cool completely until chocolate has set, then transfer to an airtight container where they should keep for up to a week.
