1 cup Best Choice all-purpose flour

1/2 cup Best Choice butter, melted

2 Best Choice large eggs, room temperature

1/4 cup Best Choice chocolate syrup

1 teaspoon Best Choice vanilla extract

1/2 teaspoon Best Choice almond extract

DIRECTIONS:

Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, combine cake mix, flour, butter, eggs, chocolate syrup, and extracts until well blended. Fold in almonds and chocolate chips. Divide dough in half. On ungreased baking sheets, shape each portion into a 12×2-in. log.

Bake 30-35 minutes or until firm to the touch. Let cool on racks 20 minutes.

Using a serrated knife, cut diagonally into 1/2-in. slices. Place on ungreased baking sheet cut side down. Bake 10-15 minutes or until firm. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool completely.

Meanwhile, melt baking chips and shortening; stir until smooth. Drizzle over biscotti; let stand until set. Store between pieces of waxed paper in airtight containers.
