Double Chocolate Almond Biscotti


The dark twin of the almond biscotti I made last week, these double chocolate almond biscotti are made with simple ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen: butter, flour, sugar, egg, cocoa, vanilla, sliced almonds, baking powder, salt, milk and chocolate chips. They are twice-baked and come out of the oven the second time crunchy and ready to be dipped in your favorite drink! Try them with this creamy hot cocoa for an extra chocolatey snack 😉
