Recipe by M&Mers
This biscotti has an interesting flavor twist due to the cinnamon and cloves...works very well with the chocolate and coffee. (Recipe credited to Agate Cove Inn, California).

Like other reviewers, I did need to add more liquid. These were difficult to cut and in my opinion the amount of chocolate chips should be reduced by about half. I'm not sure I would make this recipe again.
