Chocolate Dipped Biscotti Bites

Chocolately Biscotti Bites

You know when you see a recipe and it just sticks with you so much that you just have to make it? But then a year passes as it collects dust as it’s stuck to your fridge… That’s this exact recipe.

Well the day finally came when I just had to make these sweet biscotti babies!

I’m here today helping throw a Virtual Baby Shower for fellow Secret Recipe Club member, Tara of Tara’s Multicultural Table. She was expecting her 2nd child so shower organizer Lauren, of Sew You Think You Can Cook, decided on the fun Biscotti theme as they are a twice baked cookie. Such a fun idea to go with with 2x theme for this 2nd baby.

Here’s the kicker… my biscottis only need to be baked once! They are cheater biscottis. Just kidding. They are teeny tiny so they are only need to be baked once. Just the best!

Similarly, Tara’s sweet little daughter didn’t want to cook any longer since she arrived 4 1/2 weeks early. So this Baby Shower is really to celebrate her sweet arrival now! You’ve just gotta go with the flow with babies.

I’m always so worried about creating evenly sized cookies and I was really afriad of that with these tiny ones. I solved that problem by rolling out a 10″ x 10″ slab and then cutting that in half, then each half was cut into 5 strips, making 10 strip. I then repeated that process in the other direction. Ta-da! 100 equally sized cookies.

And the dipping part was pretty cool. You know, when you dip too much and get chocolate on your finger tips you just need to lick it off!

These teeny tiny cookies are angelic and devilish! Oh man, they are so good that they will get you in trouble. I ate 6 in about 5 minutes. No shame in my game!

Chocolate Dipped Biscotti Bites

Makes 100 Cookies

Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/4 cups fine cornmeal
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 6 Tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups sweetened shredded coconut
  • 2 Tablespoons finely grated grapefruit zest (from 2 small grapefruits)
  • 14 ounces bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped
  • Fine sanding sugar, for sprinkling, optional

Process

  1. Whisk together the flour, cornmeal, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  2. Beat the butter with a mixer on medium speed until smooth.
  3. Add the granulated sugar and beat until pale and fluffy, about 3 minutes.
  4. Beat in eggs, 1 at a time, until well combined.
  5. Add flour mixture and beat on low speed until just combined. Then beat in the shredded coconut, grapefruit zest, and 5 ounces of chocolate until evenly distributed.
  6. Dump out the dough on a floured work surface. Create a 10″ x 10″ square. Evenly cut the dough into 10 strips, then cut across to create 100 equal sized cookies.
  7. Roll out the cookies and set them on a non-stick baking sheet. Sprinkle tops with the sanding sugar. Refrigerate 30 minutes.
  8. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Bake, rotating sheets halfway through, until golden, 18 to 20 minutes. Let cool completely on baking sheets set on wire racks.
  9. Melt the remaining chocolate in a bowl set over a saucepan of simmering water, stirring until smooth. Dip the bottoms of the cooled cookies in melted chocolate, then set on parchment-lined baking sheets. Refrigerate until chocolate is set, about 30 minutes.
