    Serves: 24 

    • 1 cup (220g) white sugar
    • 1/4 cup olive oil
    • 85g margarine
    • 3/4 cup egg substitute
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
    • 2 1/2 cups (250g) plain flour
    • 1 1/8 cups unsweetened cocoa powder

    • 150g milk chocolate, chopped

    Preparation:45min  ›  Cook:25min  ›  Extra time:10min chilling  ›  Ready in:1hour20min 

    1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Line baking trays with baking paper.
    2. In a large bowl beat the sugar, olive oil and margarine until smooth. Stir in the egg substitute and vanilla. Combine the flour, cocoa and baking powder, gradually stir into the wet ingredients. Mix in the chopped chocolate. Chill dough for 10 minutes.
    3. Divide the dough into two equal pieces. Roll each piece into a 25cm long log. Place the logs onto the prepared baking tray 4 inches apart and flatten to 4cm thickness. If there is not enough room, put each one onto a separate sheet.
    4. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes in the preheated oven until somewhat firm. Cool on the baking trays until cool enough to handle.
    5. Remove baked loaves to a cutting board and cut each one crosswise into 1cm slices with a sharp knife. Place the slices cut side down back onto the baking trays and toast on each side for an additional 8 to 10 minutes. Cool on wire racks and store in an airtight container.

    Great recipe for the heart smart cookie lover! The only thing I changed was I used 5 ounces of MILK chocolate chips I had on hand instead of chopping up a candy bar. It was faster & easier. I also sliced them thinner, at the end I had 46 biscotti. This cut all the calories, fat, ect information in half.  -  26 Jan 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Pure Passion! One night, my wife was feeling low, so I lit a fire, put on some relaxing music, and whipped up a batch of these exotic treats. Needless to say, we felt like we were in Venice and..., well you know. The next morning, we ate more of the biscotti with our morning coffee. Simply Great!  -  17 Oct 2000  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    My family and I loved this recipe! I made these cookies with walnuts instead of other choppes nuts and they came out great. These cookies came out softer than the average biscotti, but everyone liked them and even Grandma with her dentures was able to eat them.  -  22 Dec 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
