      I have tried a lot of chocolate biscotti recipes and this one is the best. Mae sure you realize that the white chocolate is for dipping the cooies - it should not be added to the dough.

      This recipie is EXCELLENT!! I went out on a limb and made this biscotti for my new boyfriend for Velentine's day. He is Italian, and so I figured by baking an Italian dessert, he would either love it, or tell me I was an awful cook! Well, I split the recipe in half and by the end of the next day, he and his roommates had eaten ALL of it! They loved it and I became known as a "fabulous cook"! Thank you so much for this delicious recipe - it really came through for me! Anyone who is considering making this dessert - you should! It is fantastic!

      This was a wonderful recipe. I didn't have any chocolate chips so I left them out and I used 1½ cups of slivered almonds. I will make them again and again! Thanks!
