Cocoa Nib Biscotti

Cocoa Nib Biscotti

By: Emily Luchetti

These twice-baked biscuits are ideal for dunking in hot coffee when it’s cold, or in milk.

Serves 40 pieces


  • 1 cup sugar
  • 70g (5 tablespoons) unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups plain flour
  • 1 3/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup cocoa nibs


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/ 350°F.
  2. Beat the sugar, butter, and eggs until well blended. Stir in the flour, baking powder, salt and cocoa nibs until combined. Refrigerate the dough for 30 minutes so it is easier to roll out.
  3. For large biscotti, divide the dough in half and roll each piece into a 15-inch log. For small biscotti, divide the dough into 3 pieces and roll into 15-inch longs. Place the logs several inches apart on a lined baking sheet. Bake until golden brown, about 20 minutes. (Small and large biscotti take the same amount of time to bake.) Let cool.
  4. Reduce the heat to 150°C/300°F. For large biscotti slice the logs on a slight diagonal about 3/4; inch thick. For small slice them straight (no diagonal) 1/2 inch thick. Return to the baking sheet cut side up. They can be close together, even touching. Use two baking sheets if necessary. Bake for about 15 minutes until lightly coloured and no longer soft.
