Chocolate and Almond Biscotti

Mix 300g plain flour, 75g cocoa powder and 1 tsp baking powder in a large bowl.
Add 100g chopped plain chocolate and 50g chopped almonds.

In another bowl cream together 225g granulated sugar and 75g soft butter.
Gradually whisk in 2 eggs.

Stir the dry ingredients into the butter, sugar, egg mixture until you have a stiff dough.

With your hands make two logs about 12 inches long, flatten them slightly then place on a baking sheet.
Bake at 180 degrees for 45 minutes.

Leave to cool on the baking sheet for 10 minutes, then cut diagonally into slices, about 2cm thick.
Eat all of the yummy crumbs.
Arrange the slices on the baking tray and bake for a further 10 - 15 minutes until crisp.
Cool on a wire rack.
