"These are a perfect treat with a cup of coffee for breakfast, with tea in the afternoon or for a light dessert. Fancy enough for company but simple enough to make every day. Adding coffee granules enhances the flavor of the chocolate. I like to melt 1/4 cup white chips in a quart size freezer bag, cut off one tiny corner and drizzle the melted chips over the top of the biscotti once they have cooled completely.

Great recipe, perfect with coffee! When I add a splash of milk (the original dough recipe is a little dry), I also add a teaspoon of cocoa.
Good Chocolate flavor, but crumble. We'll stick with our regular chocolate biscotti recipe that it much better in texture.
Great biscotti, although I think its more of a Mocha biscotti than a double chocolate. The only negative for me is that the dough is very prone to crumbling. (I am an avid Biscotti baker and this is not something that usually happens for me) the dough itself was really crumbly when it came to making the logs, so I did knead it a little like I would a loaf of bread, which made it a little better. Once the logs came out of the oven and I let cool for 10 minutes I did have a few crumble on me. As always I bake the first time on wax paper. Over all a good biscotti, pity about the crumbling! I will play around a little with this recipe next time, maybe more vanilla will keep it together better.
I liked this, and thought it very good. I omited the pecans, and forgot to paste on the yolk-water mixture. Not sure if that made a difference or not, but I also didn't have enough regualar cocoa powder, so I put in some dark powder. It was really good that way. I can see how some thought of it tasting more mocha than chocolate, but I saw a hint of that, but mostly chocolate. 2 thumbs up!
Really good. I didn't have walnuts so I substituted pecans, worked out just as well. Will be making these again.
I love biscotti and this recipe filled my desires of chocolate and biscotti at the same time! Great recipe I added a little more sugar because I have a huge sweet tooth, but you can add or remove sugar as you please. I found that this recipe was devoured in under 1 hour.
This is a great recipe for biscotti. My family does not like the anise flavour in traditional biscotti, so this was a big hit. Mine crumbled a bit as well, but just a few pieces. Also - I substituted slivered almonds in place of the walnuts, and I didn't have any instant coffee granules, so those are optional as well.
Pay close attention to baking times! I let mine go to long and they got crumbly. Not to much of a chocolate flavor, more of a mocha.

See how a dash of cayenne pepper really draws out the chocolate flavor.
