Sabrina’s Oreo Dipped Biscotti Recipe
These Oreo Dipped Biscotti are sure to bring some extra sweetness to your morning. Biscotti are Italian cookies that aren’t normally very sweet, so adding the chocolate cookies makes them the perfect balance between dessert and snack. Honestly are there any delicious baked goods that Oreos don’t make even better?! For more breakfast treats with Oreo flavor added, try our Oreo Cinnamon Rolls and Oreo Scones too!
- Biscotti Dough: Biscotti cookies are made a basic dough recipe of vegetable oil, sugar, eggs, and flour. They don’t have any rising ingredients like baking powder. You’re meant to enjoy biscotti with coffee because the crispy dense cookie is perfect for soaking up the hot beverage without getting soggy.
- Oil: One thing to note in biscotti recipes is that there is not as much oil as you’ll find in more standard cookie recipes. That’s because the end result is crunchy, not chewy. So, don’t worry if you feel like the dough is a little dry.
- Oreo: We used 1 cup of Oreo Cookies for this recipe to give classic biscotti cookies a delicious cookies and cream flavor. To prep the Oreo cookies, you can pulse them in a food processor to break them into coarse crumbs. Or, put them in a plastic bag and use a rolling pin to break them apart. You want to break them just short of them becoming crumbs, so that there are still a few larger chunks mixed in.
- White Chocolate Chips: For the coating, all you need are white chocolate chips. Use the microwave or a double boiler to melt them down, then dip the biscotti in. Make sure you give the chocolate time to harden completely.
Kitchen Tools & Equipment
- Pizza Cutter: A pizza cutter is perfect for slicing the biscotti logs into separate cookies. You can also use a sharp serrated knife, just try not to drag the blade too much so they don’t break apart and crumble.
- Bowl: The easiest way to melt chocolate chips is in a heat-safe bowl in the microwave. You want it heat safe so it doesn’t get super hot and burn the chocolate or your hands.
How to Make
Time needed: 1 hour and 20 minutes.
- Prep time
Start by preheating the oven to 375 degrees. You’ll need two baking sheets lined with parchment paper.
- Biscotti Dough
Add the oil, granulated sugar, eggs, and vanilla extract to a large mixing bowl. Whisk to combine. Then add the all-purpose flour, Oreo crumbs, and baking powder. Whisk again until just combined.
- Form Dough
Divide the biscotti dough into two even pieces, and roll each one out into logs about the length of the baking sheet. Place them onto the sheets, and continue rolling until each piece of dough is ½ inch thick and 4 inches wide. You may have to shorten it as you go to get the right thickness.
- First Bake
Put the dough in the oven for 20-22 minutes or until golden brown. Take biscotti from oven, and let them cool slightly.
- Second Bake
Use a pizza cutter to cut them diagonally into 1/2-inch slices. Turn the cookies so that they’re facing cut-side-up and bake for an additional 8-10 minutes.
- White Chocolate
Let the cookies cool, then melt white chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl. Continue microwaving in 30-second increments, stirring between each one until the chocolate mixture is smooth. Dip the cookies ¼ inch deep with the cut-side-down. Let any excess chocolate drip off. Place the Oreo Dipped Biscotti on parchment paper with the chocolate side down. Let them dry for 20 minutes before eating.
Can Biscotti be made ahead of time?
Absolutely! These cookies and cream biscotti are one of the best make-ahead cookie recipes because you can store them at pretty much every stage! You can bake them fully and freeze them for up to 6 months, freeze them after the 1st bake for up to 3 months, or just prepare the dough ahead of time. The cookie dough can be frozen for up to 3 months or in the fridge for up to 2 days.
Oreo Dipped Biscotti Tips & Tricks
- Slicing the Biscotti
Before you cut your biscotti logs, you want them to cool enough to handle after the first bake. If you try slicing straight from the oven, it could make them crumble. However, you also don’t want them to cool completely, just about 10 minutes of waiting should be good.
- Prevent Burning
Since you are baking these cookies twice, you want to make sure you don’t burn them. The best way to do this is to use parchment paper on your baking sheets. The baking paper creates a barrier between the dough and the hot pan.
What to Pair With Oreo Biscotti
Drinks: Biscotti cookies are traditionally served with a cup of coffee for dunking them in. Pair the biscotti with a glass of Chocolate Milk for a more kid-friendly combo.
Dessert: Oreo Biscotti are sweet enough to enjoy as dessert on their own but you can also serve them dessert toppings or ice cream. Try dipping them in some Hot Fudge or scooping up some Vanilla Ice Cream with your biscotti “spoons”.
How to Store
Store: After they’ve had time to dry and set, you can transfer the biscotti to an airtight container to store at room temperature for 1 month.
Freeze: If you want to freeze the Italian cookies, place them on a parchment-lined baking sheet and freeze for an hour. Once they’ve hardened, transfer the biscotti to a freezer bag or airtight container to keep frozen for up to 3 months.

Biscotti is a traditional Italian cookie. The two baking times give them their crumbly, biscuit-like texture. For the first oven time, leave the dough in a long log shape. Then slice the biscotti, and return the cookies to the oven to bake to crispy perfection.
The secret to making biscotti lies in the dough. You want use the right proportion of dry and wet ingredients, use oil instead of butter, and bake the biscotti twice at a low temperature to achieve a crunchy texture. You’ll also want to give the biscotti time to cool before slicing and baking them for the second time.

Oreo Dipped Biscotti Variations
Peanut Butter: Try making these cookies with peanut butter sandwich cookies instead of Oreos, or try peanut butter Oreos. The peanut butter and chocolate would be a delicious combo and you could even add peanut butter chips into the white chocolate or dough.
Chocolate: We’ve used white chocolate to coat the biscotti, but you can use different kinds of chocolate. Milk chocolate, dark chocolate, or semi-sweet chocolate chips would each bring their own delicious flavor to Oreo Dipped Biscotti.
Toppings: Before the chocolate coating sets, you can add some extra toppings. Sprinkles, chocolate shavings, or chopped nuts will all stick to the melted chocolate.
