Strawberry Chocolate Chip Biscotti

If you like icing, this strawberry icing is not only delicious it’s so pretty too! I’m trying to think up more recipes to put it on.

I love all things pretty, pink and red this time of year and well..

to tell the truth I LOVE strawberries all year long.

I can never seem to buy enough of them, plump red, juicy and delicious!

Chocolate and strawberries, they are so delicious together

putting them into biscotti is a no brainer,

the only difference here is the type of strawberries.

You see fresh strawberries would be a little to moist for biscotti. You can just snack on those while you make the biscotti.

I wanted that REAL strawberry taste so I used freeze dried strawberries.

Mix up the biscotti dough and oh these strawberries look so pretty, sadly they won’t be pretty pinkish-red when they are baked but they taste good.

I just LOVE the color of the pretty red icing on top of these, it’s smooth and shiny and irresistible. Allow the icing to dry completely before stacking or packaging.

    Love the idea of freeze dried strawberries in your biscotti – I’ve seen all sorts of freeze dried fruits at Trader Joe’s and wondering what to do with them besides snacking on them.
