About this recipe: Cantucci are typical Tuscan biscuits, traditionally served with vin santo or red wine. They are also known as "Italian biscotti" because they are twice (bis) cooked (cotti). This version with dark chocolate is even yummier than the original!

  • 250g caster sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 300g plain flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 150g dark chocolate, cut in small chunks
