Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Lighly grease cookie sheet. Mix sugar, butter, peppermint extract and eggs in large bowl with spoon until blended. Stir in flour, baking powder and salt.

    Melt chocolate chips over low heat, stirring occasionally. Dip half of each biscotti into melted chocolate; sprinkle with crushed candies. Cool completely on waxed paper.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Italian for “twice baked,” biscotti are Italian biscuits—or cookies—that are ideal for dipping into coffee or dessert wine. This minty version would go especially well dipped in hot chocolate!
  • tip 2
    A drop of red food color will turn these peppermint cookies a sweet shade of blushing pink.
