Almond Chocolate Biscotti | Almond Chocolate Biscotti Recipe

I’m someone who can’t live without her morning cup of coffee, and her afternoon pick-me-up coffee, and sometimes even a little after dinner coffee. I’ve cut back since my days in an office when I would refill my cup countless times to get through the work grind.

But, instead of the coffees that give you enough boost to get you through a day of office tedium, I prefer the coffees I drink with intention. Sitting on my back porch as the sun gets higher in the sky, and the dogs are playing in the grass, and the to-do list in my head is just starting to blossom. And when I get the opportunity to have one of those coffees, there is no better accompaniment than a delicious almond chocolate biscotti. The chocolate in these biscotti is given a boost with a little coffee right in the batter and the roasted almonds and chocolate are a dream together. | Almond Chocolate Biscotti

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1¾ cups all-purpose flour
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup slivered and blanched almonds, toasted
  1. Heat pan on med-high and toast almonds for 2-3 minutes, stirring constantly, until they start to turn slightly golden and aromatic.
  2. Allow almonds to cool to room temperature.
  3. In a mixing bowl, beat the brown and white sugar with the eggs on high until they become thick and start to lighten in color (about 4-5 minutes).
  4. Add vanilla extract and beat to incorporate.
  5. Add coffee and beat to incorporate.
  6. Gently stir in cocoa powder until completely incorporated.
  7. Next, add the baking powder, salt and flour, a little at a time, and stir until well combined.
  8. Finally, fold the almonds and chocolate chips into the mixture.
  9. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  10. Transfer dough to floured surface and form into a log that is about 12" x 4".
  11. Place log on parchment-lined baking sheet and bake for 25-30 minutes until firm.
  12. Allow log to cool for 10-15 minutes.
  13. Reduce temperature of oven to 315°F.
  14. Cut log into slices of about ½ inch thick along a diagonal.
  15. Place slices on their sides on the baking sheet and bake for 8-9 minutes.
  16. Turn over slices and bake on other side for 8-9 minutes.
  17. Remove to wire rack and allow to cool.
Dough will be quite sticky, flour hands and surface as needed. Ensure almonds are cool before folding into dough, otherwise they will melt the chocolate chips. | Plate of Almond Chocolate Biscotti
