How to Make Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Biscotti
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Chocolate dough: In a medium bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, salt, and cocoa. Set aside.
- Cream together butter and sugar.
- Add eggs one at a time; mixing well after each addition.
- Add 1/3 of the flour mixture at a time to the creamed mixture mixing well after each addition.
- The dough will be stiff.
- For peanut butter dough: In a medium bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
- Cream together peanut butter and sugar.
- Add eggs one at a time mixing well after each addition.
- Mix in 1/3 of flour mixture at a time, mixing well after each addition. Note: You may not have to add all of the flour. Dough will be dry.
- If it is too dry and crumbly, knead in a tablespoon (more or less) of water until the dough just comes together.
- Divide both the chocolate and the peanut butter dough into 2 equal halves.
- On a floured surface (I use cocoa), shape half of the chocolate dough into a flat rectangle, about 15 inches long and 5 inches wide.
- Shape peanut butter dough into a log, a little shorter than the chocolate log, and about 2-3 inches wide.
- Place in the middle of the chocolate log and gently fold the chocolate dough up over the peanut butter dough.
- You want to wrap the peanut butter dough completely with the chocolate dough. Repeat with the other dough.
- Flatten slightly. You want a log about 15 inches long, 4 inches wide and 1 - 1 1/2 inches high.
- Bake 30 - 35 minutes in a 350 degree oven.
- Remove from oven to a cooling rack and cool for 10 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 325 degrees.
- Place slices on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake a second time for 20-25 minutes.
- Remove from baking sheet to a cooling rack and cool completely.
- Coat one side of cooled biscotti with the chocolate
- Allow to set. (If you prefer, you could drizzle the chocolate over the biscotti.)
