I wanted to make a deep chocolate Brownie Biscotti with Peanut butter chips. This is the recipe I came up with by tweaking another recipe. My Mother In law is Italian, snd I wanted to make her something special. She loves them. The peanut butter chips with the chocolate and peanut butter drizzle pair so well together.These are very easy to make. They also freeze very well. Make ahead for any occasion.
In a large bowl whisk together sugar,flour,cocoa,baking powder,baking soda,and salt. Put bowl aside.
whisk egg and vanilla extract together in a bowl. Add the 2 TB of water,and 1 TB butter. whisk well.
add the egg mixture to the cocoa mixture. Stir until crumbly.Add the peanut butter chip,and chocolate chips.
Get your hands in the bowl and knead mixture about 5 minutes until you get a nice moist ball of dough.
Take the ball of dough and roll out to 1 inch thick by about 10 inches long and 4 inches wide. You can make it longer, and have the cookies 2-3 inches long for small Biscotti too. It will make more cookies.
place slab on parchment lined sheet pan,(I usually butter the pan before putting parchment on top. This holds the parchment paper in place.) whisk egg with 1 TB water. Brush slab with egg, and bake at 325 degree's for 30 minutes. Take out of oven and cool about 15 -20 minutes.leave on sheet pan.
gently cut 1/2 inch slices of slab with serrated knife.Gently lay pieces on their sides. Put back in oven,and bake another 10 minutes.After 10 minutes. Gently flip Biscotti over and bake another 10 minutes,or until slightly crisp. They will crisp up more after cooling.
Turn your Biscotti to smooth edge on top. It should look like it did when you first sliced it. Push cookies side by side. Melt PB chips with shortening in microwave. Set timer for 2 minutes,and stop every 30 seconds to stir. When melted and combined together pour over Biscotti evenly and spread the tops of Biscotti with mixture. Next do the same with the chocolate chips melting in microwave. Put chocolate in a small ziploc bag. Snip one corner of bag and pipe drizzle over the peanut butter frosting.Put in fridge until chocolate sets. Serve or put in to air tight container. or freeze up to 2 months.
