Pinspiration in the Kitchen- Chocolate Dipped Chocolate Almond Biscotti

My August Foodie Pen Pal emailed me telling me about her preference for sweets and coffee.  (What is a Foodie Pen Pal, you ask?  Stay tuned for tomorrow morning's post for more on that one... ;) )
The local coffee shop here in my town roasts their own coffee beans in house.  So, I picked her up some fresh roasted and ground coffee from there.  I always try to include at least one homemade goodie in each of my Foodie Pen Pal boxes.  What goes better with a cup of coffee than some delicious biscotti to dip in it?? ;)  I remembered that I had pinned a recipe for a chocolate biscotti from David Lebovitz- living the sweet life in Paris blog.  Perfect!  Except I had never made biscotti before, so this was my first venture into this culinary territory...

The biscotti turned out amazing!  I may have cut some pieces just a little too thick because there were a few that turned out a little more cakey.  But most of them were the right texture and consistency.  I ,of course, opted for dipping them in chocolate.  ;) How could I not?

I packaged up some to send to my Foodie Pen Pal, and kept a few for myself.  These made for a fabulous and decadent breakfast a few times that week.  I am looking forward to whipping up my next batch of homemade biscotti soon. :)
