Chocolate Dipped Chocolate and Almond Biscotti

 

Seasons Greetings My Dear Wonderful Readers!!

We have been very busy baking this week but this time its for gifting and sharing. So I made a bunch of these biscotti for our Christmas party last week. Have you guys played secret santa? Well it was really fun when we played it in my office. Seven days of gifting and not knowing who or when and how they know what you like and yet the gifts that come are really cute! These biscotti’s were made for a dear friend as his secret santa gift from me 🙂 It was so much fun and for some  strange reason he thought my husband baked them.. haha . Anyway it was fun.. I am leaving you with the recipe and I hope you have fun making them!!

Ingredients :-

  1. Flour – 2 cups
  2. Coco Powder – 1/2 cup
  3. Sugar – 1 cup
  4. Baking Soda  –  1 tsp
  5. Almonds – 200 gms
  6. Salt – 1/4 tsp
  7. Vanilla Extract –  1 tbsp
  8. Eggs – 3
  9. Chocolate – 200 gms
  10. Sprinkles – as much as your like 🙂

Instructions :-

  1. Preheat your oven to 180 and line your baking tray with baking paper
  2. In the bowl of your stand mixer with the paddle attachment beat eggs and butter
  3. Then add sugar and vanilla extract
  4. While the eggs butter mixture are whipping, mix flour. coco powder, baking soda and salt
  5. Now add the dry ingredients into the bowl in three batches
  6. The dough will be very sticky. But it will come together to form a sticky ball
  7. Flour your counter and empty the dough onto the floured counter
  8. Kneed the dough for 4 – 5 mins and add more flour if required so that the dough does not stick to the counter
  9. Finally roll into a long log and cut into the legal halves
  10. Then roll each log to look like baguettes
  11. Pop the rolled out logs into the oven and bake for 20 mins. The crust should be hard and almost like a biscuit
  12. Then take the logs out of the oven and let them cool for 10 mins
  13. Using a seated knife, cut the logs into long thin strips. I cut mine at an angle but you can do it anyway you like
  14. Then arrange the strips back onto the tray and bake for another 10 – 15 mins depending on how brown or dark you like the biscuit
  15. Once they are done set them on a cooling rack and bring to room temperature
  16. Meanwhile melt your chocolate in the microwave at 30 sec intervals. Stir every 30 seconds to make sure you do not burn them
  17.  Finally dip the cooled biscotti into the melted chocolate and sprinkle any kind of sprinkles you like
  18. Enjoy!
