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

Ok, I died and went to heaven when I dunked one of these into a cup of Caramel Truffle coffee! Once again you've got the best recipes!

These tasted very good! I melted white chocolate chips and drizzled them on top. It looked really cool. The other bonus is my 2 kids really liked them. I am making a bunch for Christmas gifts this year!
