Chocolate Caramel Pecan Turtle Biscotti

Chocolate Turtle Biscotti are topped with a chocolate and caramel drizzle and pecans to finish off the decadent cookie treat.


  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla (yes, 1 tablespoon)
  • 20 pieces caramel candy squares
  • 2 tablespoons half and half
  • 10 ounces dark chocolate melting wafers
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans


  • To start, preheat your oven to 350 degrees and line your baking sheet with parchment paper.  Lightly dust the parchment paper with flour. Set aside.
  • Then grab 2 bowls  and wooden spoon (no need of for a mixer).  In a medium bowl combine your dry ingredients (flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, sugar and salt). Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, combine the eggs and vanilla.  Add the dry ingredients to the egg mixture.  Mix well with a wooden spoon until a dough has formed. 
  • Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead a few times until the dough ball is smooth.  Divide the ball in half.
  • Place the dough balls on the prepared baking sheet.  Press each half into a log about 12 inches long and 2 inches wide.  You may need to lightly dust your hands with flour if the dough is too sticky. 
  • Bake for 35 minutes or until the logs are firm.  Remove from oven and allow to cool on pan for 15 minutes. 
  • Then using a sharp knife, slice on the diagonal 1/2 inch slices.  Place slices cut side down back on baking sheet.  Return pan to oven and bake for 8-10 minutes, the flip and bake another 8 minutes.  Remove from oven and place baked biscotti on wire rack to cool.
  • Once the biscotti is cooled, it's time to melt your caramel and chocolate. 

How to melt in caramel candy in microwave

  • In a microwavable safe bowl, add the caramel candy and the half and half. Microwave for 30 seconds intervals, stir, and repeat until caramel is smooth.  I used a plastic squeeze bottle to drizzle the caramel over the cooled biscotti but a plastic freezer bag with a corner snipped works too.  Drizzle over biscotti.

How to melt the chocolate wafers in the microwave

  • Place the wafers in microwavable safe bowl, and microwave at 15 second intervals on HALF power, stir and repeat until chocolate is smooth.  Same as the caramel, drizzle over biscotti. 
  • Top biscotti with chopped pecans while the chocolate and caramel are still warm.  Allow to set and then enjoy.
