My friend always made us Mandel Bread for gifts but, she wouldn't share her recipe. This is the recipe I have found that is closest to hers. You can mix up your chips and nuts, from white choc. macadamia, to dark choc. dried cherry, pecans. Use your imagination!

There was absolutely no way I could mold this recipe into 2 logs wet hands or dry. I managed to bake it in one piece but was not impressed with the oily taste.
