The biscotti turned out delicious, by adding white chocolate really enhanced the depth of the flavor, and also gave the biscotti a softer and creamier texture, which also made these yummy biscotti highly additive. Almond and dried apricots added the rich nuttiness and sweet-sour juicy bites.

Wow, this is so wonderful.

I made four kinds of biscotti last week, and this recipe is one of them. The biscotti turned out delicious.

By adding white chocolate really enhanced the depth of the flavor, it gave the biscotti a softer and creamier texture, which made these yummy biscotti highly addictive.

Almonds and dried apricots added the rich nuttiness and sweet-sour juicy bites. Another 5 star biscotti recipe for sure, and another ideal gift to your friends or family.
