I have tried all sorts of plain and traditionally flavoured biscotti and some really wacky flavour combinations too. If you use great ingredients you don't need to overdo the number of flavours. I love chocolate, nuts and biscuits and this rich combination of superior dark chocolate and wonderful Marcona almonds is a traditional combination with a twist.

Pre-heat oven to 180C (160C fan oven), mark 4. Line a large baking sheet with non-stick baking parchment.

Mix together the flour, cocoa powder, chocolate chunks, almond pieces and salt.

Beat the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Gradually whisk in the beaten eggs.

Stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mix to form a stiff dough.

With floured hands, shape the dough into two slightly flattened logs, approximately 30cm x 5com. Sprinkle with icing sugar.

Bake the logs for 40-45 mins or until slightly firm to the touch. Cool on the baking sheet for about 10 mins.

Cut diagonally into 2cm thick slices. Arrange the pieces, cut-side down, on the baking sheet and bake again for 15 mins or until crisp. Cool on a wire rack.

Keep in an air-tight container for up to a week or freeze for up to one month. To serve: dip into espresso coffee, Amaretto or coffee liqueur, or the traditional Italian way - Vin Santo.
