One from the archives: Chocolate Hazelnut Mini Biscotti

This is one of my favorite "treat" recipes from the Little Goodies archives! You can see the original post here. As you all know, I love coffee, and I especially love a delicious treat to go along with it. To me biscotti always seemed daunting to make at home (double baking something?! I can barely bake something once and get it right!), but this recipe is quick, easy and super delicious. As we head into fall, I will be making sure keep these on hand for guests or a nice side to my Sunday morning coffee.

Mini Chocolate Biscotti with Hazelnut Glaze
1 box chocolate cake mix
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup butter, melted
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla

1. Preheat oven to 350
2. Combine cake mix, flour, eggs, butter and vanilla in large bowl until dough forms (I mixed/kneaded a bit with my hands to make sure it all combined properly).
3. Divide dough in half and shape into two long log shapes; place on baking sheet (will sort of look like two long baguettes - approx. 12x2 inch) Note: the original recipe says to "make your hand into a wide "C" shape, then press lightly on the dough log with your hand to get the biscotti shape - mine didn't need this, but could be helpful). 
4. Bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes or until lightly browned
5. Cool on baking sheet for 15 minutes. Then, cut the logs into 1/2 slices
6. Arrange slices on the baking sheet, sides facing up
7. Bake for 10 more minutes and let cool completely 
Note - don't overbake or it gets crumbly! I like my biscotti a little softer than some, so start with less time if you like softer biscotti and increase as needed.

Hazelnut Glaze:
1 cup powdered sugar
4 TBL hazelnut creamer (I used Darigold's all-natural Hazelnut)

To make, combine powdered sugar with creamer, 1 TBL at a time until the desired consistency is reached. On the cool biscotti, drizzle glaze and let set. I dipped a soup spoon in the glaze and let it drizzle off onto the biscotti, moving the spoon back and forth until each was covered to my liking. 

Then - DEVOUR!
