Springtime Chocolate and Almond Biscotti

It's finally spring! So to celebrate, I made Springtime Chocolate and Almond Biscotti! They have the crisp outside of biscotti, and they are filled with the sweet taste of Springtime morsels. Then, about a quarter of it is dipped in chocolate and decorated with sprinkles! Sounds yummy, doesn't it! This biscotti would be the perfect addition to your Mother's Day luncheon or dinner, May Day celebration, or even an end of school teacher's luncheon!

Springtime Chocolate and Almond Biscotti

1/3 cup Butter
2 cups Flour
2/3 cup Sugar
2 Eggs
2 teaspoon Baking Powder
1 teaspoon Vanilla
1/2 cup Slivered Almonds
1-11 oz. pkg. Springtime Morsels
Milk Chocolate for dipping
White Chocolate for dipping
 Yellow and Pink Sprinkles

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Divide your dough in half.

Use parchment paper to line your baking sheet,
or lightly grease it. Take each half of dough and
shape each piece into a 9" long and 3" wide log.
Make sure the pieces are at least 4" apart, 
as they will spread a little. 
Bake for 20-25 minutes.
Check to see if it is done with a toothpick in the center.

When they are done, let them cool on a rack for 1 hour.
Then cut the pieces into 1/2" slices. 
 Lay the slices down, like above.
Return the baking sheet to the oven and bake for 8 minutes,
then turn the pieces over and bake for 8-10 additional minutes.
When they are done, let them cool on a rack.

Melt your white chocolate in a double boiler or the microwave.
