  • 60g dark chocolate, chopped
  •  ¾ teaspoon of baking powder
  • 3 whole eggs

  3. Add this powder to the eggs and mix until the mixture forms a dough.
  4. Tip the dough onto a counter dusted with flour, add the almonds and knead until smooth. 
  5. Divide into 4 and shape into flat, rectangles. 
  6. Lift them onto a paper-lined baking sheet. 
  7. Bake for 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean, then leave to cool.
  8. Use a serrated knife to cut the baked dough into bitesize pieces. 
  9. Place on a clean baking sheet and bake them for a second time for 15 minutes, turning once until crisp. 
  10. Allow to cool on a wire rack and store for up to 10 days in an airtight container.
  • For an extra touch, dip half of each biscotti into melted white chocolate and allow to cool.
