Chocolate Biscotti

These Chocolate Biscotti are a favorite of mine. They are not too sweet but have plenty of chocolate flavor. If you haven’t made your own biscotti before, you should. These crisp, twice baked cookies, are so easy to make. The second bake is where biscotti get their famous crunch. They are baked until pretty dried out but it leaves you with this heavenly crunchy bite that meant to be dipped in coffee.
