A slightly softer version of biscotti, although if you want them hard just cook for another 10 minutes at the end until they are crisp.

- Beat butter and sugar in a small bowl with electric beaters until fluffy.
- Add eggs, one at a time, and beat until combined.

- Stir then add nuts and chocolate and mix in to a smooth dough.
- Divide dough in half and roll each half into a 30cm log shape.

These were difficult to slice because of the almonds. Good flavor though. Thanks for sharing.
