This is one of the four biscotti recipes I made last week. They were chocolaty, nutty and absolutely excellent. Orange zest added a little zing, which was a great pair with chocolate. We loved these biscotti along with the other three. They were great with a cup of coffee or tea, we have been having them for breakfast in the last a few days. Definitely well worth the effort.
