Double Chocolate Biscotti


3 large eggs
3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 cup granulated sugar
2/3 cup mini chocolate chips
1 cup sliced almonds


Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Mix eggs and vanilla till blended. Set aside. Combine the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, salt, sugar, chocolate chips, and almonds in the bowl of an electric mixer. Mix while dry to combine ingredients. Slowly add the egg mixture on low speed and mix just until the dough comes together. Do the last bit of kneading by hand and incorporate all of the flour mix. Roll the dough into 2 logs, each about 12 inches long. Place them on a baking sheet at least three inches apart from each other and 2 inches from the sides of the baking pan. Flatten the tops slightly. Bake until the sides are firm and the tops are cracked and no longer wet-looking, about 20 minutes. Cool to room temperature.

Decrease the oven temperature to 300 degrees. Cut the logs into slices 3/4 inch thick. Place them, a cut side up, on a baking sheet. Bake the biscotti until dry and firm, about 25 minutes. Cool, then store in an airtight container.
