It’s always the right time for Red Velvet if you ask me.

It doesn’t have to be near Valentine’s Day, but it’s certainly fine if it is.

You see I really like red velvet.

I’m make Red Velvet Cake and Red Velvet Cookies and well I thought it was time to make some Red Velvet Biscotti.

I’m so glad I did and you will be to if you’re anything like me and enjoy red velvet and all things pretty and red and well there are chocolate chips too! You know you can’t go wrong if there are chocolate chips involved, or at least that is what I think.

And with Valentine’s Day just around the corner I’m going to tell you…..

you sweetie….who ever they may be will just LOVE you more if you make them some of these.

I was inspired to bake Biscotti thanks to my friend Julie (The Little Kitchen) She posted Meyer Lemon and White Chocolate Biscotti and I made some the next week and couldn’t wait to start baking more! Julie is so wonderful I am always thanking her for helping me, some day I hope I can figure out something to help her with but I doubt it, she is just that GREAT already! Today is Julie’s birthday, so stop on by and wish her a HAPPY BIRTHDAY, she’ll be glad you did and you will be glad you got to see all the yummy things she’s got going on in her kitchen!
