    About this recipe: This is a chocolate take on the classic Italian, twice-baked dunking biscuits. They are flavoured with hazelnut liqueur and dotted with chocolate chips and chopped hazelnuts.

    Makes: 36 biscotti

    • 135g skinned, toasted hazelnuts
    • 200g caster sugar
    • 115g unsalted butter
    • 4 tablespoons hazelnut liqueur
    • 3 eggs
    • 375g plain flour
    • 2 teaspoons baking powder
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 85g plain chocolate chips

    Prep:20min  ›  Cook:45min  ›  Extra time:30min cooling  ›  Ready in:1hr35min 

    1. Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4.
    2. Coarsely chop the hazelnuts. In a bowl, combine the nuts, sugar, butter, liqueur and eggs; mix well. Stir in the flour, baking powder and salt.
    3. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and knead briefly; then form into a long loaf about 5cm wide. Place the loaf on a parchment-lined or lightly oiled baking tray. Bake in the middle of the oven for 25 minutes or until firm. The loaf will have a cake-like texture. Remove from the oven and cool.
    4. Cut the loaf diagonally into 5mm to 1.25cm slices and lay out on a baking tray. Bake for 20 minutes more, turning them once until both sides are lightly browned and toasted. Cool and store in an airtight container.

    this was my first try at biscotti, I found the dough to be really wet and could not kneed it at all, however I still baked it and although they looked a bit rough they taste great. Will definitely have a second attempt, thank you for a nice recipe.  -  15 Aug 2015


    I substituted toasted, slivered almonds for the hazelnuts and brandy for the liquer and omitted the chocolate chips. I have had hearty complements from everyone that has tried these. These really are fantastic!  -  04 Dec 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Making biscotti for the first time, I found this recipe very easy and good. However, I changed the directions a bit. I creamed the butter with the sugar, added eggs and brandy. I added the dry ingredients and then the nuts and the chocolate chips. I used filbert nut instead of hazelnuts. It was delicious. I would do this recipe again =)  -  22 Jan 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
