It really does taste like a brownie! It didn't turn out dry or hard, like biscotti you buy in the store. Everyone actually really liked it because of this. I used a heaping 1/3 cup of cocoa, and pecans instead of walnuts. Drizzled with both milk and white chocolate. In the future, I will leave an area un-drizzled to make it less messy to eat. I baked it at 250 for twice as long on the second bake, as I didn't want it to burn. (This may be why mine didn't get crispy.) The yolk wash leaves a very shiny, attractive top, and I will do that again in the future. Thanks for a good recipe! I will try to cook it longer next time to achieve a crunchier texture. ***UPDATE*** I've made this again, this time using oil instead of butter. MUCH better texture. Lighter, crunchier and more like traditional biscotti. I didn't have to bake it as long, either. I will only use oil in the future.
