In a small bowl, whisk together flour, hot cocoa, baking soda, and salt.


In a large bowl, beat together eggs, sugar, and vanilla.


Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and stir until batter forms. Drop in almonds and chocolate chips and stir until combined.


Shape dough into log form and place on your USA Pan Cookie Sheet, lined with parchment paper. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes.
