This is a decadent biscotti. The recipe comes from the Nestle company to promote their new "chocolatier" chips but any bittersweet chocolate could be subbed. These are rich and chocolate heaven. I have made them a couple of times the directed way and now plan to try different flavorings such as chocolate/orange...yum! This is not a difficult recipe at all.
