Cuisine: Dessert
Omanhene Chocolate Chip Biscotti Makes 50 to 60
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp kosher salt
  • 2 extra-large eggs at room temperature
  • 3/8 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/8 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts
  • 2/3 cup Omanhene 48% Dark Milk Chocolate, coarsely chopped
  1. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Place the flour, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl. Stir with a whisk to combine. Set aside.
  4. In a medium mixing bowl, beat the eggs with sugars and vanilla until well combined. Beat in the flour just until combined. Stir in the nuts and chocolate chips. The consistency will be thick and sticky.
  5. Use a large spoon and scoop batter onto baking sheet, dividing it evenly into 3 long loaves. Loaves should be 2 ½ apart and use back of the spoon to even up the edges.
  6. Bake for 35 minutes. Remove from oven and cool loaves for 10 minutes on the pan.
  7. Carefully peel the loaves fro the parchment paper and remove them a cutting board.
  8. Use a sharp serrated knife to slice the loaves on the diagonal into ½ inch slices. Arrange the slices directly on an oven racks.
  9. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until the cookies are crisp and dry.

Mocha souffle with rum and Omanhene chocolate

Omanhene Mocha Souffles With Rum

I love to serve souffles for dessert.  Not only are the flavors in this recipe especially intense — rum, coffee and cocoa — but the presentation is always greeted with smiles from my guests.  I think souffles have the reputation of being very difficult to execute; this recipe makes it easy.

Intense flavors — rum, cocoa and coffee — are the 21st century hallmarks of this traditional French dessert. Few desserts are as impressive as a souffle and this recipe is surprisingly easy to make.
  • 2 tsp butter, melted

  • 2 tsp dark rum

  • Icing sugar for dusting
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Place baking sheet in oven to heat.
  3. Grease six 8 oz souffle dishes with melted butter.
  4. In a small bow, mix 1 tsp of the Omanhene Natural Cocoa Powder with 1 tsp of sugar. Tip this mixture into each of the souffle dishes in turn, rotating each dish so the inside is evenly coated.
  5. In a medium bowl, mix the remaining cocoa powder with the coffee and rum.
  6. In a clean, grease-free bowl, whisk the egg whites until they form peaks. Add the remaining sugar and whisk.
  7. Stir a spoonful of the egg white mixture into the cocoa, coffee and rum mixture. Then fold in the remaining egg whites.
  8. Spoon the mixture into the prepared souffle dishes, smoothing the top with the back of a spoon or a spatula.
  9. Place souffle dishes on the hot baking sheet. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until well risen.
  10. Dust with icing sugar.
  11. Serve immediately.
