"This recipe makes a buttery, rich mandel bread studded with chocolate chips and nuts. You can make it even more elegant by dipping each end into melted semisweet chocolate after being baked and cooled." — springfield70

Didn't add nuts. Shaved and chopped chocolate instead of using chips. Was easy to make and was an excellent dessert. Will make it again next year.
This was better than our family recipe. I added almost a tablespoon of cinnamon to the dry ingredients and was liberal with the cinnamon sugar. (I keep on hand (special, such as Ceylon or Fancy Vietnamese [from Penzey's Spices]) cinnamon sugar made with 2/3 cinnamon and 1/3 sugar.
Per our family receipe, when the cooking time was complete, I pulled out the cookie sheets and turned each cookie on its side and baked for 10 more minutes. Then the same on the other side. This makes them extra crunchy and substantial tasting.
I'm going to a passover meal with at least one good recipe!
Excellent Passover recipe that was very easy to make and tastes as good as " real " Mandel Bread!
great recipe! I omitted the nuts as my family is not a fan, added maraschino cherries and more cinnamon sugar. Its a HUGE hit in our family!!!!
I know that mandel bread is traditional on Passover, but I made this this morning for our Rosh Hoshanah celebration tomorrow. My first time making it, but I've always loved it. Followed the recipe exactly except for sugar. Used splenda instead due to dietary restrictions; also used flour and corn starch because it's not Passover. These are great. I did slice them and put them back in the oven with the oven off for 10 minutes, because I know they usually are baked twice. Great recipe. Will go into my rotation, provided the rest of the family loves them as much as hubby and I. Happy New Year!
