This dark chocolate almond biscotti is the perfect little treat to enjoy with a cup of coffee or tea.
Every once in a while, you just need something sweet and chocolatey and YUMMY. Bonus points if it pairs perfectly with coffee (<- my love).
I posted my Christmas biscotti way back in December, and I am using that same base biscotti recipe, but changing up the add-ins a bit. In this recipe I am stirring in some Blue Diamond oven roasted dark chocolate almonds, along with some semi sweet chocolate chips. And I must say: it is a tasty combination!
Also, I must have sliced this batch a little thicker because I only got 34 biscotti out of it.

Dark Chocolate Almond Biscotti Recipe
- 3½ cups all purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter, at room temperature
- ¾ cup sugar
- 3 eggs
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- ½ cup Blue Diamond oven roasted dark chocolate almonds
- ½ cup semi sweet chocolate chips
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
- Put the almonds in a large ziplock bag and crush them, using a rolling pin or wooden spoon. (You could alternatively use a few pulses in the food processor. I enjoy unleashing some aggression.) Set aside.
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or silicon baking mat.
- In a medium bowl, stir together flour, baking powder and salt.
- Using an electric mixer in a large bowl, beat the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy, about 3-4 minutes.
- Add the eggs, one at a time, until well-incorporated.
- Add the vanilla.
- Gently stir in the flour mixture until just combined.*
- Fold in the almonds and the chocolate chips.
- Divide the dough in half, and shape into two logs 12 inches long, 2½ inches wide and 1 inch high.
- Bake for 35 minutes, and then remove, leaving the oven on.
- After letting it cool for about 5 minutes (they will still be warm), cut each log into ½ inch slices on the diagonal.
- Place the slices back on the baking sheet (use two baking sheets to fit all the pieces), and bake for 7-8 minutes.
- Remove the baking sheets from the oven, and turn each piece of biscotti over.
- Return to the oven and bake for another 7-8 minutes until crisp.
- Let them cool.
- Serve when cooled, or store in an airtight container for up to a week.
*If the dough is too dry and won't come together, get some tap water, and add a about half a tablespoon at a time, until the dough comes together.
I hope you enjoy this recipe! Let me know if you try it.
