“These are great with a hot drink!” These crunchy bites are perfect with after-dinner coffee or as a morning treat. They're just as yummy dunked in milk. Nancy Whitford - Edwards, NY

"This recipe is terrible in "healthy" form but with real sugar plus 1/2c. brown sugar and 4 whole eggs plus 1/2 c. cocoa and a stick of butter and evap milk it was more like brownie biscotti and was much, much tastier-- some things you have to eat fewer & not mess up a recipe trying to make it healthy & tasteless even dipped in dark chocolate the original recipe is not yummy."

"Il followed this recipe exactly, and before I could put it in the oven, I had to try to fix the batter, it was so stiff. I added 2 eggs and was able to bake it as noted. It is tasty enough to use as a "dunker" or nibbler, but instead of making 54 servings, there were only 24. I would only make it again if I used the recipe changes noted."

"I just made this biscotti, following the recipe exactly, and they taste terrible! They may be low fat, but they are low taste, too. I will be throwing the whole batch in the trash. I suggest finding another recipe!"
