Delicious, not too crispy biscotti, which can be dipped in or drizzled with melted chocolate. (You can use slivered almonds instead of the hazelnuts, if you wish.)

I love this recipe - easy and tasty! I've changed a couple of things though: - first I roast the nuts in the oven for about 10 minutes (at 350 degrees) or until they start to colour. - I use 1/2 cup of sugar - I use margarine instead of butter - I use about 3/4 cup of choc chips instead of the package of chocolate. - I've added about 1 tbsp of decaf espresso powder to the dry ingredients too and that was quite nice. - Last time I cooked them when I was about to do the 2nd time in the oven I just turned the oven off and left them in there and they turned out great!

I have made this recipie 30 40 times and it is always a hit! I always find the dought really sticky so I add some more flour or powdered almonds if I have them which really makes them nutty and really soft so my grand mother can eat them. Read More

The other batch was per recipe...dipped and drizzled both with chocolate. Will make again and again! Thank you for such as a delicious recipe. Definite winner! Read More

These biscotti's turned out absolutely perfect! I used bittersweet choc chips and chopped hazelnuts. I also dipped one end and also the bottom in chocolate. The only thing I did extra was baked it on either side for 10 min after slicing it - not just the once like the recipe says. I will definitely make these again Read More

This recipe has become an annual tradition at Christmastime. I bake several batches and package them nicely to give as gifts for teachers friends neighbors family. Everyone LOVES them. When I misplaced the recipe (and forgot where I got it in the first place) this past Christmas I used another recipe and it was not nearly as good as this one!! Read More
