Today’s recipe are chocolate biscotti. Instead of classic pistachio biscotti I wanted to give it a more Christmassy vibe and used arancini and almonds. These cookies are also softer in the center than the classic Cantuccini, as they are only baked once. I know that biscotti are supposed to be baked twice but I prefer mine soft with a deep chocolate flavor.
While my friend was visiting me in Vienna, we also did a day trip to Bergl, Styria to visit the famous Zotter chocolate factory. All hand-scooped chocolates are produced organically and are fair-trade. Zotter chocolates are well-known for their unusual combinations of flavors. You can find creations from orange and balsamic vinegar to caramelized bacon. At the chocolate tour you are able to taste from all varieties and as much as you want!! And you are able to learn about the process of making chocolate. Have I convinced you yet? ;)
