Dark Chocolate Dipped Almond Biscotti


What to buy (makes about 20 biscotti):

  • 1 2/3 cups blanched sliced almonds
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • semi-sweet chocolate, white chocolate or milk chocolate for drizzling or dipping

What to do:

  • preheat oven to 350 degrees and cover a baking tray with parchment paper, spray with cooking spray
  • beat eggs, vanilla extract, and almond extract in a bowl
  • combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in another bowl
  • gradually incorporate egg mixture into flour mixture until dough comes together
  • add 1 cup almonds and mix
  • turn dough out onto parchment paper and shape into a log that is roughly 3 by 12 inches
  • sprinkle remaining almonds on top
  • bake in the preheated oven until firm to the touch, 30 to 40 minutes
  • allow to cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes and transfer log to a cutting board and cut into 1/2-inch thick slices, using a serrated knife
  • return slices to baking sheet, cut-side up
  • place biscotti back in the oven and bake until biscotti are firm to the touch, about 10 minutes
  • flip each biscotti and continue baking until toasted, about 10 minutes more
  • allow biscotti to cool before dipping in melted chocolate









  1. These look wonderful. We bought a blueberry, hazelnut biscotti at the Dorset Vermont farmers market that was delicious. Blueberries and almonds sound like a good pair too.

    • Ooh this would be great with blueberries! I love all the pictures from your Duke get together – may post one on my parents’ Facebook tomorrow for their 38th anniversary!!
