Orange Chocolate Chip Biscotti

This recipe is based on one I found in a Woman's Day magazine last year. I thought that since Valentine's Day isn't too far off, I would make the biscotti with that theme, so I drizzled chocolate all over them and then tossed on a mixture of some red, white and pink sprinkles and heart sprinkles that I had. Aren't they just sweet? And you know what - this combination with the orange zest is just downright delicious too!

Why don't you make some for your sweetie? Or heck ... just make some for yourself! You deserve it. You know you do.

Orange Chocolate Chip Biscotti
From the Kitchen of Deep South Dish

3 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 cup of sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups of White Lily all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon of orange zest
1 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips, plus some extra for drizzling
Sprinkles, optional

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine all of the ingredients in mixer bowl except for the orange zest and chocolate chips. Mix on medium speed until well combined. Add in the zest and chips and mix to combine. Divide the dough in half, roll each half into a long tube shape, 12 inches in length. Place on an ungreased baking sheet approximately 3 inches apart and bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes.

Remove and let cool completely. Once cooled cut into 1/2 inch slices, either cutting straight for small slices or on the diagonal for longer slices. Lay the slices on the baking sheet individually and return to a 350 degree oven, baking for an additional 12 to 15 minutes, or until edges begin to lightly brown.
