My 14 yo daughter just finished making these wonderful treats. I can attest that these are as delicious as those made right in the heart of the Tuscan region of Italy. They have a robust chocolately crumb tempered with a creamy white chocolate drizzle that's as an angelic taste as anyone can imagine. Five stars all the way! Made for 123 Hit Wonders.

I'm always ready for a double hit of chocolate no matter how I get it, & this recipe did that for me very nicely! And, there was no way I was going to go through all of this without getting my money's worth, so I doubled the recipe! We loved the combo of almonds & chocolate here & I'll definitely be making this again ~ LOVE THAT BISCOTTI! [Tagged, made & reviewed for the chef I chose in the Vegetarian/Vegan Recipe Swap 11]
