Twice baked, these crunchy cookies are delicious with a steaming mug of cocoa or coffee to dip them in. Kept in an airtight container, they'll last for weeks so you'll be sure to have some on hand for those unexpected guests.

Review This Recipe
I LOVED this recipe
This recipe is fairly simple and comes out FANTASTIC! My husband and children even commented on how great these cookies tasted! I will be making this recipe often.
Better Than Family Recipe
I'm a life long biscotti baker. I actually like this recipe better than the one handed down in my family. The flavor is truer than the one I've been using. This easy to follow recipe, makes attractive biscotti with a very pleasant (not overpowering) flavor. This is going in the family cookbook (with an appropriate thank you to Very Best Baking real life bakers).
These are fantastic to have with your coffee, for breakfast! It makes mornings pleasant!
These were actually very easy. They turned out very yummy (better than the ones from the famous coffee houses).
Chocolate Almond Biscotti
Fun to make, Easy to make, and even more fun and easy to eat! Really, really GOOD and easy.
I tried this recipe over my Christmas holiday and was quite surprized by the ease it took to make it and how truly delicious it is. It was great to dunk in hot chocolate according to my granddaughter.
This biscotti is simple to make and it tastes fabulous! Instead of instant coffee, I used finely ground espresso beans.
This is great if you add in choc. chips and then drizzle them on top also, it makes them a little moist on the inside. I have NEVER tried biscotti before and was a little timid, but WOW! It is great for my first try!
I like biscotti and this is one of my favorite recipes. I really like the mocha flavor.
What a Treat
We enjoyed this biscotti a lot. It was softer and easier to eat than the storebought packages.
Very easy and great reviews
I made this for christmas and had terrific response. I used coffee extract instead of the instant coffee for even stronger flavor.
This biscotti was delicious. I gave it as gifts for Christmas and was told it was better than anything bought from a store.
I made these for company and it was the biscotti of the party.People asked for the recipe and said how much they liked them.I bake a lot of cookies and different biscotti and the recipe for the mocha biscotti was a 10.
"healthier" mocha biscotti
I made this for a Thanksgiving dessert... time to edge away from the traditional apple/pumpkin pie (although I did have cran-apple crisp)... I replaced the white flour with whole wheat pastry flour and substituted trans fat free margarine for the butter. It was easy to make and enjoyed by all. Mocha biscotti has become a favorite!
These are an excellent escape - especially with a hot cup of Amaretto flavored cappucino. My son got me hooked on biscotti and I've been trying new recipes every chance I get. He enjoys this flavor as much as I do.
terrific mocha biscotti
I made these Biscotti's 2 days ago. they are so good. I sent the recipe to my Daughter in Fla, she loves to bake also. I'm making them for Thanksgiving with a few more varities.
Excellent recipe. Not a big fan of almond extract so I substituted vanilla. I have to say that toasting the almonds is very important to bring out their flavor. Nothing is better than chocolate and coffee! Definitely will make again.
These were so good - and easy to make - that I decided to give them away at Christmas. I stood them in mugs, wrapped them in celophane, and tied them with raffia. Every comment I received was great - everyone loved them!
Very quick and easy recipe, but looks very elegant on a dessert plate. Great to serve after dinner, or even in the middle of the day for tea!
These didn't taste like mocha to me at all.....could not detect almond or coffee (except for the actual almonds, of course). If you are looking for something that isn't too sweet though, this is your recipe. After tasting when cooled I decided to dip the entire bottoms in Nestles melted morsels.
I love biscotti and always love new recipes. This one is a keeper. My husband even enjoyed it.
Review for Mocha Biscotti
The toasted almonds were the only thing I could taste,I was hoping for a almond favor and couldn't taste that at all.It was alittle better when I drizzled the chocolate over it.I had hoped that I wouldn't of had to put the chocolate on,but the taste was very bland and the almonds were strong in taste.
