Cherry Dark Choc Biscotti

Preheat oven to 180ºC (160ºC fan).  Line a large oven tray with baking paper.

In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with whisk attachment, combine sugar and eggs.  Whisk until pale and fluffy.  Add both flours, nuts, sultanas and cherries and stir to combine. 

Lightly dust a clean work surface with flour.  Turn the dough out onto the surface, divide into two even portions then roll each into a 30cm long log.  Transfer to prepared tray, flatten the tops slightly then bake for 30 mins.  Remove tray from oven and allow logs to cool for 20 mins.  Reduce oven temperature to 140ºC.

Use a serrated knife to diagonally cut slices, about 5mm thick.  Arrange slices back onto the lined oven tray and bake for a further 15 mins, turning the biscuits half way, until they are crisp and dry.  Transfer biscuits to a wire baking rack to cool completely.

Place chocolate in a microwave safe bowl and melt according to packet instructions.  Pour melted chocolate into a small cup and dip the ends of the biscotti into the melted chocolate, tapping off any excess.  Sprinkle extra almonds over the chocolate to decorate.

Place dipped biscotti onto baking paper and stand at room temperature until the chocolate sets.
