This have a nice chocolate and cinnamon flavor, I baked according to directions and thought they could have used a little more time to get crispier. I added chocolate chips because more chocolate is always better. My dough was also pretty sticky, damp so I added a little more cocoa.

There is one serious problem with this recipe, the cookies are too small, LOL. Thats likely a good thing because they are just far too easy to keep on eating. Biscotti are my favorite cookies and these are delicious. I doubled the cinnamon and replaced the sugar with Splenda. When sampling I stopped at 2 but it wasn't to not take "just one more".

I was really pleased with these, I followed the recipe exactly and they came out perfectly. I'm not much of a baker, so if I can make these, so can you :) They smell wonderful, everyone loved them. I made up little gift parcels for my daughter and my other daughters boyfriend, I can see I'll have to make some more!!! Thank you for a lovely recipe Nancy, made for ZWT 8

A rich, dark chocolate with just a hint of cinnamon, and the nice crispy texture of a biscotti - a very special treat with my afternoon Cuppachino. I found it easy to follow the directions as listed. I had a pan that I purchased for just this purpose so no need to roll and cut so I had no issue with the sticky dough. Next time I may use momaphet's idea a add some mini chocolate chips.

Wonderful biscotti recipe! Not too sweet, the cinnamon is subtle, with the chocolate being the star of the show. As other reviewers have mentioned my dough was quite sticky and I added about 3 T of flour and 1 T of cocoa powder to get the dough to a consistency that I could shape it. Love these - thanks for sharing the recipe! Made for ZWT8, Chefs gone WILD!

This is a wonderful biscotti recipe! The only very tiny issue I had was the dough was so sticky there was no way to roll it into anything - I just formed logs with my hands directly on the baking sheets. Worked for me! They bake up perfectly and I love that they are not overly crunchy to the point that you have to dunk - with these you do have the option to bite first and drink second! Enjoying it completely with a cup of dark roasted coffee tonight. Found and made through ZWT8.
