Brownie Biscotti

If you are looking for a reason to eat brownies for breakfast - I have a great one!

I'm a lover of brownies in any way, shape or form.  I have every brownie recipe pinned including brownie dips, brownie bites, etc.  This Brownie Biscotti is one of those pinned recipes - and I just had to give it a try. And as I mentioned earlier, I found an excuse to eat brownies for breakfast.  If there's biscotti in the house and a coffee pot brewing you have to put them I did....quite often.

This recipe is from Secrets from the Cookie Princess and I am so glad she shared this secret.  Normally I like my brownies fudgy so I was wondering if tasting a brownie crispy would be a satisfying as an actual brownie.  Um...yeah! Both kids loved these too and once I shared how delicious it was dipped in coffee because the chips melt a bit, they decided they needed to have theirs with hot chocolate or a cup tea. These are so easy to make too, as a matter of fact, it may be time for another batch.

recipe from Secrets from the Cookie Princess
Ingredients:6 tablespoons of butter, softened
2/3 cup of sugar
2 eggs, room temperature
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1 3/4 cups of flour
1/3 cup of cocoa powder
2 teaspoons of baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoon of espresso powder
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1/2 cup of mini chocolate chips

Cream the butter on high in a stand mixer and then lower to medium and add in the sugar. Once that combines, add the eggs one at a time and then the vanilla. 
In a medium bowl whisk together the dry ingredients, the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, espresso and salt.  
Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet and combine.  Add the chocolate chips and stir by hand.
Shape the dough into a loaf about 14 inches x 2 1/2 inches and about 3/4 inch thick.
Bake at 350 for 25 minutes and then allow it to cool in the pan.  
Cut the biscotti into even slices of 1/2 - 3/4 inches.
Stand them upright and bake them again this time at 325 for 25 minutes.
Allow them to cool and enjoy!!
