Hazelnuts + Chocolate = Happiness

I'm a fan of anything chocolate with hazelnuts. So of course when I saw this recipe for chocolate hazelnut biscotti, I knew I had to make it. And make it I did. They tasted amazing but of course not having made biscotti before, they look a little odd. And quite large. So no pictures yet. Next time, I promise. There's something else I want to bake... French macarons.
    Not to be confused with macaroons, which I think of as American, has no filling, and usually made with coconut. Anyway, as for the macarons, they scare me. There seem to be a squillion steps to making them and the failure rate seems unusually high. Which kind of also makes me want to make it more. I'm rebellious like that. And when I do, you know there'll be chocolate involved. Oh I do love chocolate.

I'm going to go gaze longingly at the biscotti now. (It's too late to eat them plus you need to dunk them in coffee prior to eating unless you want chipped teeth. Not a good look for me... I tried it on when I was 16. I'll tell you about that later.)
