Don't just be another Brick in the Wall... unless of course it is one of these Triple Chocolate dipped Biscotti Bricks...Then it would be something to consider
1-3/4 cups plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/4 cup + plus 2 tablespoons natural unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 stick (8 tablespoons) unsalted butter, at room temperature
3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips for cookies
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips for melting and dipping
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt.
In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, 1-2 minutes. Scrape down the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula. Add the eggs, one at a time, scraping down the bowl and mixing well after each addition. Beat in the vanilla. Add the dry ingredients and chocolate chips and stir on low speed until just combined.
Dust a work surface with flour. Using a rubber spatula, scrape the sticky dough out onto the work surface and dust the top of the dough lightly with flour. Using your hands, shape the dough into a rough ball (if it's still too sticky, dust with a bit more flour) and cut in half. Form the dough pieces into two short logs by rolling back and forth. Place the logs onto the prepared baking sheet and shape into longer logs about 3/4-inch high and 2 inches wide. Allow enough space for the logs to spread a few inches while they bake. Bake for about 30 minutes, until firm to the touch. Let the biscotti logs cool on the pan for about 5 minutes, or until just cool enough to touch (if you wait any longer, the biscotti will be difficult to cut); then, using a sharp knife, slice the logs on the diagonal into 3/4-inch slices (I do this right on the baking sheet). They will crumble just a bit; don't worry about it. Turn the biscotti on their sides (so that the cut sides are down) and place back in the oven for 10 minutes to dry and crisp up. Let cool on the pan for a few minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool.
In a double boiler, melt the 2 cups of chips and vegetable oil until melted. Pour melted chocolate in a deep coffee mug (makes it easy to dip the cookies) and dip the biscotti, scraping off excess chocolate on the side of the mug. Place on a piece of parchment and allow to dry on the counter.
