This chocolate Biscotti, has a rich and intense chocolate taste with a hint of orange.

Oranges are a fruits, I associate with Christmas very strongly therefore these are a given cookie during the festive season.


4 tbsp. cacao

3 dl flour

1 dl sugar

peel of 1 large orange

1tsp vanilla extract

1 tsp. baking soda

2/3 stick of butter / 75 grams butter room temperature

75 grams /1/3 cup dark chocolate chopped

1 egg

A pinch of salt


  1. Preheat oven to 175°C/350 F. whisk butter and sugar until it becomes creamy. Add the egg and stir until it’s all combined. Add the peel of the orange.
  2. Mix the dry ingredients in a separate bowl, add into the butter mixture.
  3. Lastly add the chopped chocolate and mix into the dough.

Divide the dough in three, and make 3 flat lengths (about 7 inch/ 20 cm). place the lengths on baking tray dressed in a baking sheet. .

4.Place in the middle of the oven and bake for 20 minutes.

Let cool for 2 minutes cut diagonally small cookies, place them in the oven once again and bake on after heat until the oven is completely cold.
