Ingredients

  • 1 package chocolate cake mix (regular size)
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup chocolate syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds
  • 1/2 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup white baking chips
  • 1 tablespoon shortening

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, beat cake mix, flour, butter, eggs, chocolate syrup and extracts until well blended. Stir in almonds and chocolate chips. Divide dough in half. On ungreased baking sheets, shape each portion into a 12x2-in. log.
  2. Bake 30-35 minutes or until firm to the touch. Carefully remove to wire racks; cool 20 minutes.
  3. Transfer baked logs to a cutting board. Using a serrated knife, cut diagonally into 1/2-in. slices. Place on ungreased baking sheets, cut side down. Bake 10-15 minutes or until firm. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
  4. In a microwave, melt baking chips and shortening; stir until smooth. Drizzle over biscotti; let stand until set. Store between pieces of waxed paper in airtight containers. Yield: about 3-1/2 dozen.
Freeze option: Freeze undrizzled cookies in freezer containers. To use, thaw in covered containers. Drizzle with baking chips as directed.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 16, 2013

"The biscotti were no problem to make; really a lot of fun. But the drizzle was difficult. The chips never melted so that they were of a texture where they would drizzle over the biscotti. I had to add some milk to them and then it was too runny. Perhaps it was just a case of some kind of beginner's luck..."

"We are addicted to this - even my kids! I made these with dark chocolate cake mix, then added some chopped pecans and chopped white chips into the mix instead of any drizzle on top. SO yummo! We will be making this again soon~"

MY REVIEW

"I tweaked this recipe for a holiday cookie basket I gave my parents a few years ago. My dad cannot have nuts so I replaced the almond and vanilla extracts with peppermint extract and the nuts with crushed peppermints. Needless to say they were a hit and every Christmas I am required to make him his own personal batch of them."

"I made these with triple chocolate fudge cake mix. My husband thought they were too chocolaty but everyone else loved them. Really, is there such a thing as too much chocolate? A keeper for sure & has made me a new fan of biscotti."

MY REVIEW

"I made this for Christmas gifts this year and it was so very easy and incredibly yummy. My next batch I will try using the new sugar-free chocolate cake mix and chocolate syrup to help reduce the calories, otherwise, it's perfect just like it is. Addicting, too! :-)"
