Chocolate Confetti Chip Biscotti


These were created a few weeks ago during a biscotti making binge and they were delicious.


The idea came when I found different flavor leftover chips in my cabinet. Small amounts of cherry, butterscotch, white and bittersweet chocolate flavors were all hanging out so I decided to throw them all into this biscotti.


Glad I did. Each bite is a surprise of a different flavor or flavor combo and I love those little spots of color against the chocolate.
