2 Baking Sheets
Parchment Paper



  • 2 ¼ cups All-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup Cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon Baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon Baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon Salt
  • 1 cup Granulated sugar
  • 3 Large eggs
  • 2 tablespoon Buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla extract
  • Red food colouring


  • 1 cup Powdered/Icing/Confectioner’s Sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Melted butter
  • 1 tablespoon Milk
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla extract
  • Pinch salt



  • Preheat oven to 350F, Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper, spray with pan spray.  Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, combine the flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together sugar, eggs, buttermilk, and vanilla until well combined and smooth. Add a little red food colouring, mix well to combine, then pour into the bowl with the dry mixture, stir to combine.
  • If you want more red food colouring, add it now and stir gently to combine.
  • Divide dough in half, form into 2 long, wide loaves on the prepared pan.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes, until golden brown on the outside.  Remove from oven, turn heat down to 250F.
  • Allow loaves to cool for 5 minutes.
  • Cutting on a slight diagonal, slice each loaf into ½" slices.
  • Arrange slices on the pans.  Bake for 15 minutes, flip each piece over and bake for another 15 minutes, or until desired texture.
  • Remove from oven, allow to fully cool.


  • Whisk together glaze ingredients until smooth. If too thick to drizzle, microwave for 10 seconds at a time, stirring until runny.
  • Drizzle over cooled biscotti. Allow glaze to fully harden before transferring biscotti to an airtight container.
