This is a modification to Chantel's Totally awesome Biscotti and the few test runs I have done has received excellent reviews.

- 1⁄2 white chocolate chips
- 1 inch paraffin wax, finely grated

- Scramble the eggs until foamy then add vanila and cooled coffee. Mix well then add to sugar & butter mixture.
- Add chocolate chips and nuts (almonds, hazelnuts or pistachios) to mixture.
