Brownie Biscotti Recipe
- ⅓ cup butter softened
- ⅔ cup white sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 tbsp vanilla extract
- 1 ¾ cup all-purpose flour
- ⅓ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 2 tbsp baking powder
- ½ cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips
- ¼ cup walnuts chopped
- 1 egg yolk beaten
- 1 tbsp water
Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease baking sheets, or line with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla.
Combine the flour, cocoa and baking powder; stir into the creamed mixture until well blended. Dough will be stiff, so mix in the last bit by hand.
Mix in the chocolate chips and walnuts. Divide dough into two equal parts.
Shape into 9x2x1 inch loaves. Place onto baking sheet 4 inches apart. Brush with mixture of water and yolk.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes in the preheated oven, or until firm. Cool on baking sheet for 30 minutes.
Using a serrated knife, slice the loaves diagonally into 1-inch slices. Return the slices to the baking sheet, placing them on their sides.
Bake for 10 to 15 minutes on each side, or until dry. Cool completely and store in an airtight container.

Commonly Asked Questions
Can I decrease the amount of sugar used in this recipe?
If you prefer your biscotti to be less sweet than most, you can half the sugar used in this recipe. However, we do not advise removing the sugar entirely as the unsweetened cocoa powder is very bitter. Sugar balances this out and brings out the chocolaty taste we all know and love.
A cup of coffee can be so comforting. What better way to elevate this experience than to pair it with some homemade brownie biscotti? Making things yourself means you get to control what goes into it.
