Dipped in melted chocolate and rolled in crushed peppermint candy, these flavorful biscotti are a favorite. They are among the many sweets I make for Christmas. —Paula Marchesi, Lenhartsville, Pennsylvania

  • Makes
    about 3-1/2 dozen

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3 large eggs, room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons peppermint extract
  • 3-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup crushed peppermint candies
  • FROSTING:
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons shortening
  • 1/2 cup crushed peppermint candies

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar, 5-7 minutes. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in extract. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; stir in peppermint candy. Gradually add to creamed mixture, beating until blended (dough will be stiff).
  • Divide dough in half. On an ungreased baking sheet, shape each portion into a 12x2-1/2-in. rectangle. Bake 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Carefully remove to wire racks; cool for 15 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board; cut diagonally with a sharp knife into 1/2-in. slices. Place cut side down on ungreased baking sheets. Bake 12-15 minutes or until firm. Remove to wire racks to cool.
  • In a microwave-safe bowl, melt chocolate chips and shortening; stir until smooth. Dip 1 end of each slice into melted chocolate, allowing excess to drip off; sprinkle with candy. Place on waxed paper; let stand until set. Store in an airtight container.
