Mocha Hazelnut Biscotti

-1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
-1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour
-1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
-1 teaspoon baking soda
-1/2 teaspoon salt
-1 teaspoon instant coffee powder
-3/4 stick (6 tablespoons) unsalted butter, softened
-1 cup granulated sugar
-2 large eggs
-1 teaspoon chocolate extract (optional)
-1/2 cup cappuccino chips
-1/4 dark chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and grease a large baking sheet.

In a bowl whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, salt, and instant coffee powder until well combined. In another bowl with an electric mixer beat together butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs and chocolate extract and beat until combined well. Stir in flour mixture to form a stiff dough. Stir in chips.

On prepared baking sheet with floured hands form dough into two slightly flattened logs, each 12 inches long and 2 inches wide.  At this point, I like to use the Pampered Chef® Mocha Hazelnut Sprinkle on top of the logs.  Bake logs 35 minutes, or until slightly firm to the touch. Cool biscotti on baking sheet 5 minutes.

On a cutting board cut biscotti diagonally into 3/4-inch slices. Arrange biscotti, cut sides down, on baking sheet and bake until crisp, about 10 minutes. Cool biscotti on a rack. Biscotti keep in airtight containers 1 week and frozen, 1 month.
