Nutella Biscotti

So after my last post (the cookie dough cupcakes with Nutella frosting) I had this half bottle of Nutella left in my house.  Just lying around ... looking delicious ... staring at me ... day ... after day.  I couldn't handle it anymore!  I have ZERO self control when it comes to Nutella.  I can eat the stuff with a spoon.

I knew I had to use the rest of the stuff before I grabbed said spoon and went at it.  This is what I came up with, and let me tell ya, it's delicious!  Sweet, crumbly goodness.  You could even push it over the edge with a drizzle of chocolate or even more Nutella.  The hazelnuts make it taste even more like Nutella. Love.

Nutella Biscotti:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup Nutella
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup bittersweet chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup roasted hazelnuts, roughly chopped

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F
  2. In a side bowl whisk together the flour and baking powder
  3. In the bowl of your stand mixer, with the paddle attachment, cream together your butter, sugar, and Nutella on medium speed
  4. Crack your eggs into a separate bowl or glass and add your eggs, salt, and vanilla.  Then add eggs one at a time to your butter/sugar mixture.  Make sure to scrape down the bowl between each egg
  5. Add your flour and baking powder and mix on low until combined (about 30 seconds) don't over mix
  6. Add the chocolate chips and hazelnuts and mix on low until combined
  7. Take out a baking sheet and line it with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat if you have one .  Put the dough on the baking sheet and shape it into a long log.  You're going to be cutting it into strips, so just make this log the size you want your biscotti to be.
  8. Bake for about 30 minutes until the edges are browned and the middle doesn't feel too soft
  9. Take it out and let it cool for about 20 minutes (don't turn off the oven)
  10. Cut the loaf into 1-2 inch strips and place them (cut side down) back on the baking sheet
  11. Bake again for about 15-18 minutes until lightly browned and no longer soft in the middle


  1. I love the sound of nutella biscotti, these look delicious!

  2. I have no self-control around nutella as well. You did this recipe justice by using it :)
