Have a love for coffee and biscotti? This Red Velvet Biscotti with the hint of chocolate is perfect. Plus, who else feels the need to prolong the holiday treat-eating season?


For the biscotti:

  • 6 Tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 large egg
  • 3 Tablespoons heavy whipping cream
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon red gel food coloring

For the glaze:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 ounce cream cheese, softened
  • 1 Tablespoon heavy whipping cream
  • ¼ cup mini chocolate chips


  1. In a large mixing bowl, beat butter with granulated sugar. Add cocoa powder and egg to the mixture, beat until combined. Add in the cream, and mix until fully blended. Add flour, baking powder, and food coloring and mix until combined.
  2. Line a 15inch x 10inch x 1inch baking sheet with parchment paper. Divide dough in half. With hands, pat dough into 9inch x 2 ½ inch rectangles. You will have TWO rectangles. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 25 minutes. Remove biscotti from oven. Slice each rectangle of dough into 9 even slices. Tip each slice onto one side and return to oven. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and flip biscotti to opposite side. Bake an additional 10 minutes. Remove from oven and cool completely.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar, cream cheese and cream until smooth. Spread a generous amount of glaze onto each slice of biscotti. Add mini chocolate chips, if desired. Allow glaze to set, about 15 minutes. ENJOY.


  • Store in airtight container for up to one week.
  • Not a fan of cream cheese frosting? These would be delicious drizzled or dipped in melted white chocolate, like I did with my Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti.
  • Homemade biscotti is the perfect gift idea! Wrap them up with a ribbon and place them in a gift bag along with a collectable coffee mug.
