Mega Chocolate & Almond Biscotti Recipe

Biscotti is an Italian word for cookie. This is an unusual cookie in that it is dried until crispy. If you like chocolate, and who doesn't, this is a great recipe.


1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
1 cup of sugar
1/2 cup of coca powder
3/4 teaspoon of baking soda
1/8 teaspoon of sea salt
1 cup almonds, toasted
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
5 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Preheat oven to 325 degrees and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.

Add all ingredients except eggs and vanilla extract and mix thoroughly.

In a separate bowl whisk egges and vanilla and add it to the dry mixture. Stir everything until the dough comes together.

Cut the dough into two pieces and use flour to keep dough from sticking. Form dough into two strips about 2 inches in diameter, on baking sheet with parchment paper. Place about 4 inches apart.

Bake for 35 minutes and cool for 15 minutes.

Cut each strip into 3/4 inch slices. Place strips cut side down on the parchment lined baking sheet, reduce the oven temperature to 280 degrees and return to oven for 25 more minutes. Flip strips and put in oven for 15 more minutes. Remove from oven and let cool completely.

You can add a drizzle of white chocolate tot he biscotti by melting 3/4 cup of white chocolate chips with 2 tablespoons of heavy cream. Let the chocolate harden before serving.
