Orange Chocolate Chip Biscotti

I’ve never been much of a biscotti fan until now. This Orange Chocolate Chip Biscotti is bursting with flavor! It’s crunchy, nutty with the perfect amount of orange flavor. It’s also super chocolatey. I added chocolate chips to the cookie batter and also dipped them in chocolate after they cool. The chocolate and the orange go so well together!

This Biscotti is alot easier to make than you think. It comes together like a simple cookie dough then gets baked in logs, sliced then baked again.

After the biscotti cools I dip them in melted chocolate and sprinkle on chopped pecans and orange zest.

It makes such a pretty presentation and is perfect for the Holidays!
