step-by-step
instructions
Make the dough
1 Make the dough

Place an oven rack in the center of the oven, then preheat to 375°F. Working in 30-second increments, melt the butter in a large bowl in the microwave (or heat in a small pot on the stove, then transfer to a large bowl). Add the granulated sugar, brown sugar, and 1/3 cup of warm water; whisk to combine. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, cornbread mix, and cocoa powder. Transfer the dry mixture to the bowl of butter-sugar mixture. Stir until just combined. Add the chocolate chips, cherries, and almonds; stir to incorporate.

Bake the dough
2 Bake the dough

Line a sheet pan with parchment paper. Transfer the dough to the parchment and shape into an even, 9-inch by 5-inch rectangle. Bake 32 to 36 minutes, or until mostly cooked through (the dough should feel solid and slightly hollow). Carefully transfer to a cutting board and let cool about 20 minutes.

Slice, bake & serve the biscotti
3 Slice, bake & serve the biscotti

Using a serrated knife, slice the cooled dough into 1-inch-thick pieces. Return to the sheet pan and arrange in an even layer. Bake the biscotti 15 to 17 minutes, or until cooked through and hardened. Remove from the oven and let cool completely before serving. Enjoy!
