    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    Perfect biscotti made with a cake mix, if desired drizzle with a white chocolate glaze after the cookies are cooled, melt a 10-ounce bag of white chocolate chips with 2 teaspoon shortening, mix until smooth then drizzle over each cookie.

      I had no problems with this recipe except for a little crumbling when I cut the log....which happens no matter what biscotti recipe I use. I used A Betty Crocker devil's food cake mix because that is what I had on hand. I bookmarked the recipe and plan to use it over and over again.

      I bought a bunch of DH mixes on sale and regretted buying so many until I came across your recipe. Very easy to make and they freeze very well - if they last that long!

      I was looking for something "different" to do with the glut of cake mixes I have, and I was SURE this would go over well with everyone because they generally like chocolate and they generally like biscotti-type cookies, but it just didn't... I'm really not quite sure why. It was very hard to shape them into logs, because the dough was SO sticky. I should have taken them out of the oven a little sooner, too, because even though they weren't firm when I DID take them out, they wound up being too hard in the end. I used sliced almonds instead of slivered, because that's what I had on hand. It was worth a try, though -- thanks for posting!
