Chocolate & hazelnut biscotti

Occasionally, I like to have some sweet treats in my cupboard which are nice to dunk into tea, coffee, hot chocolate or maybe vin santo, well not the chocolate one for sure. Not that I need an excuse to bake, but this time I really had to convince myself to finally do something with the jar of hazelnuts that somehow just did not seem to get empty. Even after making chocolate-hazelnut spread twice, it seemed the jar has not bottom. I thought the quickest would be to whip up this biscotti. It's pretty easy to get it together and although it has to be backed twice, it is done in a flash. And what's not to love about them?! I guess it's time for espresso!
