My mind always is thinking of the next great biscotti recipe. Anyone else with me on this?

Okay, so maybe not everyone thinks the same way I do. But, biscotti is a delicious, crunchy treat that is perfect for breakfast.

Seriously, cookies for breakfast. And because biscotti is totally acceptable, you can put anything in them! (hello..turtle biscotti) Today, though, I made some Chocolate Orange Biscotti.

How to make Chocolate Orange Biscotti

Chocolate Orange Biscotti: a delicious breakfast treat, COOKIES FOR BREAKFAST!

Biscotti is not difficult once you learn how to make it!

Start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, beat softened butter with sugar until combined, about two minutes. Add in eggs, orange extract, and orange zest. 

Slowly add flour and baking powder.

The dough will be crumbly. Using your hands, dump dough onto parchment paper, and shape into a 12-inch by 4-inch rectangular log. Pat evenly so it will be about 1/2 inch high. Using your warm hands you should be able to press dough together smoothly.

Bake for 25 minutes. Remove from oven and slice biscotti into 16-18 slices. Arrange slices on their sides, leaving a little space between each slice. Return to oven and bake an additional 10 minutes.

Flip slice to other side. Bake 10 more minutes. 

Remove and cool completely before garnishing.

In a small bowl, combine the zest of one orange with sugar, using a fork. Drizzle melted chocolate over each biscotti slice and immediately sprinkle with orange sugar. ENJOY.

How to store Biscotti

Cooked and cooled biscotti should be kept in an airtight container at room temperature.

If well sealed, it should last up to two weeks, perfect for enjoying in a hot cup of coffee!

To freeze biscotti, slide cooked treats into an airtight, freezer safe container (or ziploc bag). Seal and freeze until ready to enjoy. Thaw overnight.
