Crunchy Almond Chocolate Biscotti

Baked Fresh form the oven :)

Yummyyyyyyy Choco Almond crisp Biscotti :)

Biscotti are oblong-shaped almond biscuit, made dry,crisp and crunchy textures which are baked twice originating from Italy.


1/2 to 1 cup Almonds Sliced(Ready-made packet) or Whole Almonds.
2/3 cup Sugar
2 Large Eggs (Room Temperature)
1 Tsp Vanilla Extract or Almond Extract
1 Tsp Baking powder
1/4 Tsp Salt.
1 3/4 cups All Purpose Flour
2/3 cup Choco chip or Semi sweet chocolate chunks or Sweetened Chocolate Bar( If you are not having Choco chip/Semi sweet chocolate then take any dark chocolate bars chopped into bite sized chunks and need to reduce the amount of sugar if using sweetened chocolate bars)


Preheat the oven to 350 Degrees F or 180 Degrees C.Toast the whole almonds into the baking tray for about 8 to 10 minutes or lightly browned and fragrant. Let it cool and keep aside.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a bowl, beat the sugar and eggs on high speed until thick,pale and fluffy for about 3 to 5 minutes using Hand mixer or an Electric Mixer. Add the Extract of your choice as above ingredient mentioned.   

Whisk the dry ingredients(Flour,Baking powder and salt) together and sift it into the separate bowl.Add the dry ingredient mixture to the Egg mixture and mix well until combined. Fold in the chopped almonds or sliced almonds(Ready-made).

Transfer the dough to the well floured surface and make into log shaped dough  for about 12 inches(30  cm ) long and  3 1/2 inches (9cm) wide.You need to flour your hands to form log shaped as the dough might be super sticky :)Place on your baking sheet for about 20 to 25 minutes or until firm to the touch. Remove from the oven and let it cool on the cooling rack for about 10 minutes.

Well Again its going to be twice baked :)

Reduce the oven to  325 Degrees F  or 165 Degrees C.Transfer the log to the cutting board and cut into about  1/2 inches slices on the diagonal.Place the cut sides down on the baking sheet and bake it for about 8 to 19 minutes or until light browned.

Take out from the oven and turn slices over.Bake it again for another 8 to 10 minutes or until golden brown on the sides of the biscotti. Remove from the oven and allow it to cool.

Serve it with Tea or milk or eat as a snack.It can be store in an air tight container.

Enjoyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy  the taste of biscotti slice with cup of tea :)
