Mocha Almonds and chocolate chip biscotti

For this months Baking Partners challenge I made Biscotti. Well I have been making a lot of them off later but this one got rave reviews from my dearest girl friend and my adorable younger sister. πŸ™‚ I have made the classic version before.

You shall need:

1 cup… All purpose flour

1 tbsp… Instant coffee added to 2 tbsp boiling water.

1 … large egg

1/2 cup… Golden brown sugar

1/4 tsp… Salt

1/2 tsp… Baking soda

2.5 tbsp… Cocoa powder

1/4 cup… chocolate chip

1/2 cup… Almond slivers

1/4 cup… butter

1 tsp… vanilla essence

Few tbsp of milk

Method:

  • Pre heat oven the 180C.
  • Cream sugar and butter until pale.
  • Add the egg and beat.
  • In a bowl mix the cocoa, flour, salt and baking soda with a whisk.
  • Stir in the flour with the butter and egg.
  • Add the coffee and vanilla.
  • Mix the dough well.
  • We dont want a very wet dough it needs to be comparatively dry as it need to be shaped in a log form.
  • Add the chocolate chips and almond.
  • Add a few tbsp of milk it need be.
  • Apply butter on the baking tray and make 2 logs of equal size and shape.
  • Bake for 20 min or until nice and hard on the top.
  • Let it cool for 10-15 min.
  • Now slice them and bake again for 10-15 min each side or until the moisture is gone.
  • Serve with tea or coffee.

Alternatively you make dip it in chocolate of your choice and serve. I could not take another picture of the finished biscotti and it was wrapped up and sent as a gift. πŸ™‚
