The Freshman Cook: Springtime Chocolate and Almond Biscotti

Please Rate this Recipe

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

(printable recipe)

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.

Place the butter in your bowl, and blend for 30 seconds.

Add 1 cup of the flour, your sugar, eggs, baking powder

and vanilla. Mix together until combined.

Add the other cup of flour and the almonds.

Mix together with a spoon or spatula.

Add the springtime morsels, and mix in with your

spoon or spatula.

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 milk chocolate in a double boiler. Melt your white chocolate in a double boiler or the microwave. Spread each piece of biscotti with the chocolate, then sprinkle with pink and yellow sprinkles. Let dry. Enjoy! Thanks so much for joining me today! I hope you enjoyed this recipe.
