Ingredients:

  • 1 3/4 cups (11.5-oz. pkg.) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chunks, divided
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, softened
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons almond extract
  • 1 cup slivered almonds, toasted

Directions:

PREHEAT oven to 325º F. Grease baking sheet.

MICROWAVE 2/3 cup chunks in uncovered, microwave-safe bowl on HIGH (100%) power for 45 seconds; STIR. The chunks may retain some of their original shape. If necessary, microwave at additional 10- to 15-second intervals, stirring just until chunks are melted.

COMBINE flour, baking powder and salt in small bowl. Beat sugar and butter in large bowl until light and fluffy. Add eggs and almond extract; beat until combined. Stir in melted chocolate. Gradually stir in flour mixture. Stir in nuts and 1/2 cup chunks.

SHAPE dough with floured hands on prepared baking sheet into 12 x 3-inch log; round top.

BAKE for 40 minutes or until slightly firm to the touch and cracked on top. Cool on baking sheet for 10 minutes. Slide log onto cutting board and cut into 18 even slices. Return to baking sheet cut-side-down. Bake for an additional 10 to 15 minutes or until firm. Remove to wire rack to cool completely.

PLACE remaining chunks in small, heavy-duty plastic bag. Microwave on HIGH (100%) power for 30 to 45 seconds; knead. Cut a tiny corner from bag and drizzle over cooled biscotti. Let stand until drizzle is set. Store in airtight container at room temperature.

    We want more!!!!

    Marilyn Mitchell from Talent, OR

    I made this biscotti as a test cookie against my other almond biscotti recipe. This Triple Chocolate Almond recipe won hands down. I still have to make the vanilla biscotti,but I have to make twice as many of the chocolate recipe. They make the best gifts no matter the holiday.

    Biscotti

    Janice Vazquez from Gaithersburg, MD

    I baked these for a social gathering and I subsititued the almond extract for vanilla. I also only baked them for 30 minutes instead of 40. They turned out amazing, my friends loved them. They asked me to make them again if we ever have another gathering.

    Extremely yummy

    Martha LaChance from ROCHESTER, NY

    This was an easy and delicious recipe. I found that I did have to use my hands to mix the dough when adding the chococlate chips and almonds, but it all turned out perfect. And the chocolate drizzle made me feel like I was eating something decadent!

    Good, but still looking for perfect

    Betty Canerday from FL

    I think these are very good but they're not as much like the bakery biscotti as I hoped. We ate them all up - but they didn't soak up the coffee and soften like biscotti usually do. Maybe I cooked them too long?

    Coffee Dipping Good

    Deb Myers from ANOKA, MN

    This recipe is easy to prepare. It is great for dipping in cocoa if you are a severe chocoholic. If you are not a dipper, add some dried cherries to the mix.

    Christine Eppard from BROADWAY, VA

    I love Biscotti. This recipe was easy to do, the taste was so much more than I expected. Moist, crunchy and not heavy. On my glaze icing I mixed up some almond for some and the others I used chocolate. Wonderful with great coffee.

    great with coffee

    Annette Schmidt from Greendale, WI

    I made these for a girlfriends birthday gift (along with different coffee beans). Very easy to make and absolutely delicious with a cup of coffee. Next time I might drizzle a little bit of white chocolate on top as well for appearance.

    I have never made biscotti before so my first batch I cut a little to thick and they did not dry out the second time around in the oven, but I loved the taste they had and am making another batch tonight.
