Triple Chocolate Biscotti

Christmas = Baking madness in my household Today I made the following: three types of cookies, two other desserts, a TON of Green beans and baked butternut squash....
The Kitchen is a war Zone.

Here's the recipe for my triple chocolate Biscotti:
1/2 cup butter, softened
2/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup cocoa powder
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 eggs
1 3/4 cups flour
3/4 cup white chocolate chips
1/2 cup chocolate chips
Blend together the butter, sugar, cocoa and baking powder as shown above :)

Add in your eggs....

Then blend in all of your flour, followed by the chocolate yumminess....

Form the dough into 2 9 inch logs. Bake at 375 for 20 minutes.

Let the logs completely cool before starting to slice... I took this opportunity to start my gingerbread snowflake cookies (a post I will write at a later date...)

oh, and I did 2 batches of these guys.,...

Once cool, slice the logs diagonally, forming your biscotti :)

Line em back up on the cookie sheet, reduce the oven temp to 325, and bake for 7 minutes on each side....
Delish. These were really good warm with all the melty goey chocolate...

Then I wrapped them up for their final destination....my annual cookie gift boxes! (finished product to be blogged at a later date)

Now I'm off to run around like a crazy person!! Merry Christmas everyone!!!!!!!!!
