Directions

Preheat oven to 325℉ (160℃).

Divide the dough in half.

To one half, add the cocoa mixture and melted chocolate.

Place half of the almond dough on a well-floured work surface.

Pat into a 4x8 inch rectangle.

Definitely a 5 star biscotti recipe. Chocolate, coffee and almonds, I could find all these yummy ingredients in every bite. Loved the texture as well, fluffier than normal biscotti because of eggs and egg whites. Two layers of flavors were deliciously well together, crunchy and nutty almonds added extra nuttiness and crunchiness. They look so pretty, an ideal gift for holiday.
