For the biscotti

  • 260 g Plain flour
  • 1 tsp Baking powder
  • 160 g Caster sugar
  • ¼ tsp Salt
  • 50 g Cocoa powder
  • 145 g Mixed peel
  • 1 Orange zest only
  • 3 Eggs large
  • 50 ml Milk

For decoration

  • 1 Terry's chocolate orange melted
  • Orange sprinkles optional


  • Pre-heat your oven to 160C Fan/180C/350F/Gas Mark 4, line a large baking tray with baking paper
  • For the biscotti dough stir the plain flour, caster sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt together in a mixing bowl
  • Then stir in the mixed peel and orange zest
  • Add the eggs and milk, and stir to make a sticky dough
  • Tip the dough onto the baking tray and shape it into a rectangle, approximately 35cm long and 10cm wide
  • Bake the dough for 35 minutes. Then leave it to cool on the tray for about 30 minutes
  • Using a serrated knife, trim off the ends, then carefully slice the cooked dough into about 1" slices and place them onto lined baking trays
