Brownie Biscotti

Ingredients

1/2 cup butter, melted
3 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1-1/3 cups sugar
3/4 cup baking cocoa
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup unblanched almonds, toasted and coarsely chopped
1/2 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips

Drizzle:
1/2 cup white baking chips
1-1/2 teaspoons shortening

Directions

~Preheat oven at 325°

~In a large bowl, combine the butter, eggs, and vanilla until well blended. Combine the flour, sugar, cocoa, baking powder, and baking soda; gradually add to butter mixture just until combined.

~Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface; knead in almonds and chocolate chips. Divide dough in half. On an ungreased baking sheet, shape each portion into a 12-in. x 3-in. log, leaving 3 in. between the logs.

~Bake for 30-35 minutes (or until set and tops are cracked). Cool for 15 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board; cut diagonally with a serrated knife into 1/2-in. slices.

~Place cut side down on ungreased baking sheets. Bake for 20-25 minutes (or until firm and dry). Remove to wire racks to cool.

~For drizzle: In a microwave, melt vanilla chips and shortening at 70% power for 1 minute; stir. Microwave at additional 10- to 20-second intervals, stirring until smooth. Drizzle over biscotti.

~Makes 3 dozen.
