Chocolate Drizzled Almond Biscotti

These lightly sweetened biscotti are made with sliced almonds mixed in and sprinkled on top, and are drizzled with chocolate. They go perfectly with a hot cup of coffee or hot chocolate, and make great gifts for any occasion. Some biscotti I have tried have been way too hard…these are crunchy, but not too hard on the teeth. Dunk them in your favorite drink to soften even more. When I made this last batch, they were all gone within 24 hours! You might want to double the recipe… ­čÖé
