Chocoholic Mint Truffle Kissed Biscotti

1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup plus 2 Tbsp. granulated sugar
3 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
3/4 cup cocoa powder
1 Tbsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
10-oz. bag Hershey's Mint Truffle Kisses, unwrapped and halved

1 cup white chocolate chips
Sprinkles, if desired

Preheat oven to 375°F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper or spray with cooking spray.

In a stand or electric mixer cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla; beat until well combined, scraping sided to incorporate all ingredients. Place flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt into a large bowl. Add to wet ingredients following with the chocolate chips and kisses. Mix on low until just combined.

Divide the dough into two equal halves and form into two 10-inch logs on the prepared baking sheets, at least 4 inches apart. The logs should be about 10 inches long by 4 inches wide (they will spread during baking), and about 1 1/2 – 2 inches deep. Bake for about 30 minutes, then allow to cool for 10 minutes. Using a long serrated knife slice each log into 3/4-inch to 1-inch pieces on the diagonal. Separate on the baking sheet so that the sides are not touching. Bake for an additional 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool completely.

Melt chocolate over a double broiler or carefully melt in microwave in 30 second intervals until smooth and melted. Dip tips or drizzle chocolate over entire surface of biscotti and then add sprinkles, if desired. Let chocolate harden on wax paper then enjoy with your favorite cup of hot chocolate!!

Approximately 16 slices of biscotti
