HOME OF GREAT TASTING RECIPES

Chocolate Coated Almond Biscotti

Chocolate coated almond biscotti’s are my favorite, every time we go to Starbucks I get one. They are irresistible . My recipe is very simple  and with only 7 ingredients make these mouth watering Biscotti’s.

These great tasting Biscotti are twice baked, once as a loaf and then as a individual cookies, making them ultra- crisp. You can try different variations , add vanilla topping to make vanilla biscotti or add coco powder to make it chocolate biscotti.

The biscottis are oblong-shaped  biscuits, made dry and crunchy through cutting the loaf of dough while still hot and fresh from baking in the oven.
