Double Chocolate Orange Biscotti ~ The combination of orange with chocolate has long been a favorite of mine, especially during the holiday season. Fresh seasonal oranges twirling around with not one but two types of chocolate –– what’s not to love? Sweet, tangy oranges blended with rich dark chocolate and white chocolate just oozes with happiness in my book AND since it is the most cookie-time-of-the-year I made these delicious dunkers. Biscotti are, simply put, a twice baked cookie that are best eaten after taking a plunge into a hot cup of cocoa or spiked coffee drink. In other words, they are an interactive cookie and one best enjoyed with friends that don’t mind when you have a little melted marshmallow or chocolate left on your upper lip. Another wonderful thing about making biscotti (besides the fact that your house will smell amazing) is that they are easy to wrap-up and give away for gifts or to take to your next holiday party. On Friday, I got to make these delicious Double Chocolate Orange Biscotti treats on Studio 512 with the always lovely host, Amanda Tatom. Check out the video (I’ve never made cookies so fast!) and grab the recipe below.  Happy Dunkin’!

Ingredients
  • 1 medium orange zest and juice
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened coco powder
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper, a silpat, or grease it well and set aside. In a large bowl
  2. In a large bowl combine the flour, coco powder, baking soda, and salt. Use a whisk to get out any lumps that may have formed in the mix and set aside.
  3. In another large bowl combine the butter and the sugar and mix until light and fluffy. Once mixed add in the orange zest, orange juice, and the eggs and continue to stir until well combined. Finally using a large spoon or spatula fold in the white and dark chocolate chips. Stir until well combined. Divide the dough in half and place onto prepared cookie sheet, leaving a fair amount of room between each ball of dough. Using hands, form dough into long oval shapes that are about 7-8 inches long by 4-5 inches wide and about an inch tall. Do this with both balls of dough then place into the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Once finished remove from the oven and allow them to cool for 20 minutes.
  4. Once cooled, slice both rolls into about 1/2"-3/4" biscotti. Place sliced biscotti back onto the cookie sheet and bake for another 5 minutes, then flip them over and bake for another 5-8 minutes or until fairly firm on the outside. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for a few minutes before serving.
