Dark Chocolate Rosemary Raisin Biscotti

These dark chocolate raisin biscotti have a hint of rosemary in them for a savory and sweet combination. They’re gluten-free, grain-free and perfect naturally sweet holiday treat.

We don’t have a big family, it’s just my brother, me and our spouses, no grandkids yet and no crazy amounts of extended family members.
