Double Chocolate Biscotti

Sue and I were so happy to receive our package of Chipits from Hershey's Canada that we even shared with our sister, Orra. She was pretty happy to get some free chocolate chips and decided that she would share her recipe for these adorable and tasty double chocolate biscotti. 
These are the perfect thing for gift giving during the holidays. You can decorate them in tons of different ways to make them look festive! We used Chipits White Chocolate and then dyed some of the white chocolate red and green with some food coloring. 
DON'T FORGET TO GO HERE TO ENTER TO WIN your very own Chipits package! (That's 20 bags of Chipits!!) 

Double Chocolate Biscotti
(From Orra)

1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup Hershey's Cocoa 
1/2 cup Chipits Semi-Sweet Mini Chocolate Chips
2 eggs
3/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup butter, melted
1 tsp vanilla
2 Tbsp strong coffee (prepared)

1 egg white, beaten (for brushing tops)
1 bag of your favorite Chipits Chocolate Chips (for dipping)

Preheat oven to 350. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper, set aside.
In a mixing bowl, stir together flour, Hershey's cocoa, and mini chocolate chips.
In another mixing bowl, whisk together 2 eggs, sugar, butter, vanilla, and coffee. 
Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix well.
Form dough into 2 - 12" logs. 
Place on prepared cookie sheet and brush with beaten egg white.
Bake at 350 for 20 minutes.
Remove from oven and slice logs into 1 inch pieces, on the diagonal. Lay flat on cookie sheet and bake another 20 minutes.
Remove from oven and let cool completely. 
In a microwave safe bowl, melt chocolate chips in 20 second intervals, stirring well in between, until melted. (Be careful not to overheat them!)
Dip biscotti in chocolate and set back on parchment paper to solidify. (Pop them in the fridge for a few minutes to speed the process.) You can also place the melted chocolate into a Ziplock bag, snip off the corner, and drizzle the chocolate over your biscotti for a different look. 

Note - if you don't have a microwave you can melt the Chipits over low heat in a saucepan, again, just be careful not to over heat them.
See, easy peasy.

These really are some of the most delicious biscotti I've ever tasted. Orra might just know what she is doing. (Just don't tell her I said that.) They are crispy like biscotti but still are soft enough that you don't feel like you are going to chip a tooth. 
And they taste like brownies. 
Want to see what happened to the cookies she brought me to photograph for the blog?

Yeah, that container used to be full. 
I accidentally ate them. 
Oh well, They are super easy to whip up - I'm sure she can just make some more.

Anyway - there is just sooooo many ways to use Chipits in your holiday baking I'm sure you want to pick some up for yourself. Or, you know, WIN SOME!!
