  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened dark cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoons salted butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup semisweet mini chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 350-degrees F. Prep a large baking sheet by lining with parchment, baking mat, or with butter and flour.
  • In a bowl whisk together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt.
  • In a separate bowl, using an electric mixer beat together butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs and beat until combined well. Add vanilla extract and combine well.
  • Add flour mixture to butter mixture and mix to form a stiff dough. Fold in chocolate chips until combined.
  • Divide dough in half. Flour or slightly wet your hands and form dough into two slightly flattened logs on prepared baking sheets, each approximately 12 inches long and 2 inches wide.
  • Bake 30-35 minutes, or until slightly firm to the touch. Cool on baking sheet 5 minutes, or long enough to handle easily.
  • Transfer to cutting board and cut diagonally into 3/4 inch slices.
  • Arrange biscotti, cut sides down, on the baking sheet and bake for about 10 minutes, or until crisp.
  • Cool on a rack.
