Recipe by Mirj
I got this from the Single Momz website, a great place to visit. Kids adore this, makes a great gift in a coffee mug and some ribbon.

This biscotti is very chocolatey! I used double the amount of nuts (hazelnuts, which I first toasted). I also used 3/4 cup chocolate chips. The cookie still held up well after slicing. I also didn't wait 30 minutes before slicing...only 10 minutes or until cool enough to handle. Good one, Mirj! Thanks! M&Mers
