Chocolate biscotti

I'm not a fan of coffee, it makes me all jittery. As a consequence, I'm not a fan of biscotti either. But this one, well, lets just say you don't need any coffee to eat this with.

1 cup flour
6 tbsp cocoa powder
0.5 tsp baking soda
0.25 tsp table salt
2 eggs
0.5 cup sugar
0.5 tsp vanilla
a tiny drop of almond extract
0.5 cup chopped hazelnuts
1/3 cup chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 350 F. Mix flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt.

In a different bowl beat eggs, sugar, vanilla and almond extract.

Stir in dry ingredients, chocolate chips and chopped hazelnuts. Shape into a log and place onto a baking sheet lined with baking paper.

Bake for 25 minutes, until the dough feels firm. Remove from oven and allow to cool for 20 minutes. Slice into half-inch slices. Lay the slices onto the lined baking sheetand bake another 15 minutes.

If you wish to, dip in melted chocolate and store in an airtight container.
