12 Days of Christmas Cookies. Day Eleven. Almond Joy Biscotti.
Oh I do love these!!!! I found the original recipe online at ShugarySweets.
When I was mixing the dough I decided to use up some things. A little bit of chopped almonds and some chocolate sprinkles. And why not use the extra melted chocolate to decorate the cookies.
They reminded me of an Almond Joy candy bar.
