Biscotti is a special type of Italian almond biscuit that is baked twice to get a unique texture that is dry and crunchy.


The Italian Chocolate Almond Biscotti is an all-time favourite variant where the appeal of almonds is augmented by the charm of cocoa. The result is an appealing biscotti that anybody would love to sink their teeth into. Biscotti are best served with warm drinks, so they can be dipped and enjoyed, but can also be relished plain.


Coffees like Irish Coffee , Viennese Spiced Coffee , Chocolate and Cinnamon Coffee and Orange Coffee or teas like Orange Green Tea , Phudina Green Tea , Lemon Grass Tea , Black Tea, Basic Black Tea and Apple Tea make a good accompaniment to Chocolate Almond Biscotti.

Tarla Dalal    Hi Alpa, Biscotti are generally made with eggs and there is no substitute for it. However in future when we do make an eggless one we will let you know
