Chocolate Cherry Biscotti Recipe

These are perfect for every holiday season. Whether you’re enjoying a hot cup of eggnog or chocolate, this is the treat to pair it with.

How To Make Chocolate Cherry Biscotti

  • 1/2 cup butter (softened)
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 tsp almond extract
  • 3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup candied cherries (chopped )
  • 1/2 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate (chopped )
  1. Preheat oven to 350° F (175°C). Grease a large cookie sheet.

  2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar with an electric mixer on low speed until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the almond extract.

  3. Combine the flour and baking powder; stir into the creamed mixture until just blended. Mix in candied cherries and mini chocolate chips.

  4. With lightly floured hands, shape dough into two 10 inch long loaves. Place rolls 5 inches apart on the prepared cookie sheet; flatten each to 3 inch width.

  5. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until set and light golden brown. Cool 10 minutes.

  6. Using a serrated knife, cut loaves diagonally into 1/2 inch slices. Arrange slices cut side down on ungreased cookie sheets.

  7. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until bottoms begin to brown. Turn, and bake an additional 5 minutes, or until browned and crisp.

  8. Cool completely. Melt white chocolate in the microwave, stirring every 20 to 30 seconds until smooth. Drizzle cookies with melted white chocolate before serving.

  9. Store in tightly covered container and pop it in the fridge if there are leftovers.
