Not fond of biscotti? Try this moister version that's especially good with a hot cup of coffee. It has such a chocolaty taste and sweet drizzle on top that you won't even know it's been lightened up.

"I followed the recipe, only using sliced almonds for the pecans. When it said to shape the dough I assumed it would be more like bread dough but it is very sticky like cookie dough. These taste really good but mine did not raise. They are probably about a third of the width of the pictured ones. I will make these again because I like the taste and see if they turn out correctly."

"yum! Although, I tweaked my recipe because I was looking for a hazelnut biscotti. I replaced the pecans with an equal amount of finely chopped hazelnuts, and used an 1/8 of a teaspoon of orange extract. It definitely needed to be dunked, so I think I over-baked them."

"Tried this a few years back, and it's become a regular in my annual holiday baking. Extremely easy to make, and a huge crowd pleaser. Tastes decadent, without the guilt!"
