fantastic idea, topwithcinnamon.
When I originally saw the photo, I assumed the chocolate lump was made in something like an ice cube tray. Do you think that would work, assuming you could find a try with large enough ice cubes?
Thanks for the instructable!

thanks! I originally tried doing this in an ice cube tray but yeah, mine were too shallow so I couldn't get enough of the chocolate mixture onto each biscotti. I'm sure that if you could find one which could hold enough mixture, it'll work just fine!
