This recipe is given in grams; it's from a BBC food show. The dough can feel a bit crumbly but it's no problem. These are really good and chocolaty. I like to roast my hazelnuts in the oven. You make them fast and you can eat more of them since there is no butter in them good for lactose intolerants!!

Amazing - my husband made this. He reduced the sugar to 146g and used walnuts for the nuts and then used semisweet chopped baking chocolate that had 6 g of sugar per serving. I fell in love with my man all over again... A keeper (the recipe and the hubby!)

Beautiful Chocolate Biscotti!! yum! this was delicious and I will make it again and again! A perfect simple and delightful recipe. I did have to bake it for 30 minutes though instead of the 15 in the recipe. A new farourite... thanks!

Great flavour and easy to prepare. I used walnuts and left out the chocolate and increased the cocoa to 60grams. Not too sweet with a good chocolate flavour. I did find it hard to cut into slices without crumbling but I always have that problem with most biscotti recipes so that's probably just me or my knife! Do try this one - it's going to be a regular for me from now on.
