Chocolate Peppermint Biscotti

IMG_8746A very snowy Saturday found me in the kitchen yesterday…alone…for my annual baking marathon.  “Little a” was planning to join me, but the doom-and-gloom weather forecast kept her home.  I was sad, but a marathon is a marathon and I was moving forward.

I’ve made this chocolate biscotti before, but never with Andes Peppermint Crunch baking chips:

IMG_8755What a fabulous addition!  I simply followed the recipe, and substituted 3/4 cup peppermint crunch for the white baking pieces.  Such a great combo.  I was a bit concerned that the “crunch” would be similar to a candy cane, but not at all.  The only crunch is in the delicious chocolate biscotti.  Yum.

I rolled the dough into 7 small logs and watched them carefully in the oven.  The smaller logs yield more biscotti, and the size fits in well with all the other holiday cookies.

Happy holiday baking!
