A good recipe for a day like today. My hubby has been down for about 8 days with a bad sinus infection, he decided to share the joy and now my daughter and I have both not felt well since Friday night. UGH! I had been cloroxing everything in sight to hopefully avoid sickness but I guess it didn't work this time. I needed to get a cookie of the day recipe posted, however, so here you go!
Almond Chocolate Biscotti
1 pkg. chocolate cake mix
1 c. all-purpose flour
1/2 c. butter, melted
1/4 c. chocolate syrup (such as Hershey's)
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 c. slivered toasted almonds
1/2 c. mini chocolate chips
1 pkg. vanilla or white chips
2 tbsp. shortening
IN a large bowl, beat the cake mix, flour, butter, eggs, chocolate syrup and extract until well combined. Stir in almonds and chocolate chips. Divide dough into halves. Make a 12 x 2" log on two seperate baking sheets. Bake @ 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes, or until firm to the touch. Remove and cool for 20 minutes. Carefully cut diagonally with a serrated knife into 1/2" slices. Stand up on baking sheet and bake an additional 15 minutes. Cool. Melt vanilla chips and shortening together, and drizzle over cooled biscotti! YUM!
