Yield: Yields about 25 biscotti.
These cookies render the flavors of an Almond Joy candy bar—almond, chocolate, and coconut—in biscotti form. They keep and pack well, making them great for gift-giving.
With the mixer on low speed, gradually add the flour mixture and mix just until combined. The dough will be sticky. With the mixer still on low, mix in the almonds and chocolate chips. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Position a rack in the center of the oven and heat the oven to 350°F. Line a large cookie sheet with parchment. Divide the dough into equal halves and place on the cookie sheet. Working on the sheet, shape each half into a loaf about 10 inches long, 3 inches wide, and 3/4 inch high. Bake until the tops are browned, cracked, and crusty, and spring back slightly when gently pressed, 30 to 35 minutes.
Cool about 30 minutes on the cookie sheet. Reduce the oven temperature to 325°F.
Transfer each loaf to a cutting board and with a sharp serrated bread knife, cut 1/2-inch slices crosswise on the diagonal. When slicing, hold the sides of the loaf near each cut to keep the slices neat. Put the slices cut side down on the cookie sheet and bake until the biscotti are dried and the cut surfaces are lightly browned, 15 to 20 minutes. Transfer the cookie sheet to a rack and let the biscotti cool completely. The biscotti may give slightly when pressed but will harden as they cool.
I had very high expectations after reading all the comments but honestly these were just alright. These aren’t really biscotti IMO, they're very crumbly but not crunchy/snappy like traditional biscotti. The recipe doesn’t call for ground almonds which I think usually give that authentic biscotti texture/taste? Anyway, the taste of these is nice and they look great but they taste/feel very similar to Chips ahoy cookies.
These might be delicious, but I had real trouble trying to slice for the second bake. They pretty much fell apart, every time my knife hit one of the almonds. This isn't my first rodeo and I followed the recipe to the letter, so I wonder why they wouldn't hold together.
These are delicious - I would like more coconut flavor, so may try to suggestion to use some coconut oil when doing them next time...otherwise wonderful...
These are incredible. I didn't have brown sugar so I used white sugar and it was just fine. I also substituted half of the butter for coconut oil and it also worked well- really enhanced the taste. This is something I'll be making all the time!
