|Chocolate Chip-Almond Biscotti|
“Biscotti” has always been the goto snack for me, specially at the 2-3pm energy slump time….something sweet n crunch but always looked slightly difficult to make (atleast that’s how I perceived it)….So that’s how it went on till one fine weekend when I was out of them and was in a complete lazy mood to buy them from outside….So attacked my kitchen pantry……was in luck as I had all the needed ingredients along with “Chocolate Chips” BINGO !!!!! So it was finally made and the first two were devoured (not completely cooled n me drooling over them) which after consuming realized were HOT to eat….. So here’s the recipe, hope u enjoy it as much as I do without burning hands or mouth :))
