Biscotti made with Nutella

Recipe by Micki Lea

2 1⁄4 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons cocoa
1⁄2 teaspoon baking powder
1⁄2 teaspoon baking soda
1⁄2 teaspoon salt
3 large eggs
1 cup sugar
1⁄2 cup nutella
1⁄2 cup chocolate chips
1⁄2 cup hazelnuts (optional)


Preheat oven to 350°F.
Sift together flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl.
Beat eggs in a large bowl until frothy.
Add sugar and continue beating on high for 2 minutes.
Stir in Nutella.
Add flour mixture to egg mixture and stir until well combined.
Stir in chocolate chips and hazelnuts, if using.
Divide dough into 2 or 3 logs with well floured hands and arrange on a parchment lined baking sheet. Press logs into rectangles approximately 1/2 inch thick.
Bake at 350F for 20 minutes.
Remove from oven.
Turn down oven heat to 300°F.
Using a serrated knife, cut logs into 1/3-1/2 inch slices. Arrange on baking sheet and return to oven.
Bake for 10-12 minutes, turn biscotti over and bake an additional 10-12 minutes (depending on the thickness of your slices).
Remove to a wire rack to cool. Store in an airtight container.
