Dark Chocolate Chips, to melt and dip the biscotti

I prefer dark chocolate chips in this recipe but you can use any kind you like.

This simple recipe is very easy to make but very decadent too. It reminds me of a perfect nutty chocolate bar on a shortbread cookie.

I’ve made these bars quite a few times and sometimes substitute other nuts in the recipe too. Practically any nuts will work. Just choose your favourite nuts to make your own version.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

For the shortbread base

  1. Process in a food processor until the mixture is crumbly (or quickly rub the butter through the flour and brown sugar using your hands).

For the top layer

  1. Whisk together the eggs, corn syrup, brown sugar, melted butter and vanilla extract until the brown sugar is totally dissolved. Pinch the mixture between your fingers to make sure you can't feel any sugar granules.
