Review This Recipe
mmmmmmm mmmmmmm good
This was really good. Comforting. Enticing. I found chocolate biscotti at the warehouse store, and wanted something special to go with it. This was perfect. I added cinnamon sticks as stirrers and topped it with whipped cream. Needless to say, there was NONE left!!!!
