Hot Chocolate Biscotti is the perfect thing to enjoy with a cup of hot chocolate! Make this biscotti recipe to share during winter activities. Disclosure: I made this Hot Chocolate Biscotti recipe as part of a sponsored post for TruMoo.
Last weekend some of our friends made a last minute trip to Minnesota. We were super excited to see them and we took advantage of the great weather by going ice skating. The fun, outdoor rink we went to is made up of three ponds connected by meandering canals. There is a large, heated building with an outdoor fireplace, but we spent our time outside skating. I brought along a carafe of hot TruMoo Chocolate Marshmallow milk and a bunch of delicious Hot Chocolate Biscotti to share.
It was such a fun evening. Everyone loved the hot chocolate and biscotti. We enjoyed the snack while sitting on benches alongside the skating rink. All of the kids were asking to go again the next day!
To make the chocolate marshmallow biscotti, beat the eggs and sugars for about 3 minutes, until thickened. Beat in the melted butter and vanilla. Mix in the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Finally, stir in the chocolate chips and mini marshmallow bits.
Cover a cookie sheet with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper. Take half of the dough from the bowl and form into a log shape that measures about 10 inches by 3 inches on the cookie sheet. Then, do the same for the second half of the dough, leaving at least 3 inches between the logs.
Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes until golden on the outside. (The center will still be soft.) Turn the oven down to 300 degrees. Allow the logs to cool on the cookie sheets for 10 minutes. Then, carefully move them to a cutting board and cut into ¾ inch slices using diagonal cuts with a serrated knife.
Lay the slices on the cookie sheet, at least ½ inch apart, with the cut side down. Bake at 300 degrees for 17-22 minutes, until crisp and brown.
Allow the biscotti to cool for 5 minutes on the cookie sheet and then move to a wire rack to cool completely. Drizzle the biscotti with melted chocolate and sprinkle with mini marshmallow bits.
Pour a cup of TruMoo Chocolate Marshmallow milk and heat it up in the microwave or keep it cold, if you prefer.
