Decadent Triple Chocolate Walnut Biscotti

(Falmouth, Maine, USA)
My daughters and I came up with this SIMPLE recipe. Nothing intimidating about biscotti now! These are delicious and easy; the chips in the mix are a nice treat and the nuts add nutrition. These are triple chocolate: chocolate-based dough with white and dark chocolate chips. Double's good if you lack white chocolate chips.
1 (7.4-ounce) package chocolate chocolate chip muffin mix (we used Martha White brand but others work too)
2 Tablespoon extra light olive oil
1 Tablespoon butter
2 Tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup coarsely chopped walnuts (almonds are a nice variation)
1/3 cup white chocolate chips
In a medium bowl, cream together oil, butter and sugar. Mix in egg and vanilla. Add muffin mix, stir well, and fold in nuts and white chocolate chips. On a parchment-lined cookie sheet, flatten dough with greased fingers into a 9 by 4 inch flat log that's about ½ inch thick.
Bake at 375F (190C)degrees for 20 minutes. Remove, slice into 10-12 pieces (cut on the diagonal) and turn pieces on side. Cook for 5 minutes, flip to the other side and cook for 3-5 more minutes. (Stay alert and watch carefully so edges do not burn.) Cool completely, and enjoy with tea.
