Chocolate Almond Biscotti
Serving Size / Yield
- 1 cup blanched whole almonds
- 2/3 cup sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 cups flour
- ½ cup chocolate chunks or chips
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Toast the almonds until lightly brown and then chop and set aside. Use an electric mixer to beat the sugar and eggs until it turns in to a fluffy mixture. Pour in the vanilla extract and set aside. Use a large bowl to combine the flour, salt and baking powder.
Combine the two mixture together until it becomes a dough mixture. Now, mix the chocolate chunks and chopped almonds into it. Roll the dough into a log shape and then place in the oven for 25 minutes. Let it cool down before slicing the Biscotti log. Place the individual slices back in the oven and bake for a further 8-10 minutes. Allow to cool and store in an airtight container.
