Biscotti Cheesecake Bites

I sometimes get a craving for cheese and sometimes I get a craving for cake. Sometimes the cravings collide with a delicious combination known as cheesecake. I came across this recipe for No Bake Raspberry Cheesecake Bites from This Silly Girl’s Life that I found on Pinterest. I thought it was the perfect way to satisfy my cheesecake craving and incorporate Cucina & Amore’s most popular and unique Cranberry Almond Biscotti.

    1. That is a possibility, however the texture of the “cheesecake” might be more icy than creamy based on the consistency of the yogurt used and it having to be frozen. Let us know how it goes!
