Chocolate Cake Mix Biscotti Recipe

Chocolate Cake Mix Biscotti Recipe

We love cake mix cookies in our house and have made so many different flavors and combinations. All are eaten quickly and greatly appreciated!

They’re so easy and only take a few ingredients, which we always seem to have on hand. Even kids can easily mix up a batch of cookies using a cake mix and the cake batter flavor that they have is a major plus.

The recipe is similar to making cake from a cake mix, except with no water added. Cake mix cookies are also offer a perfect opportunity for adding flavored extracts and mix-ins.

This biscotti recipe is not only delicious for dipping in hot chocolate, but they also travel great, too, in case you need to ship any cookies to anyone.
