Every weekend, to make extra money, Grandpa DiBella would take his small wooden cart into the village in order to sell his hand-picked fruit to the people. One weekend, a local store owner stopped by grandpa’s cart and offered to trade a pound of dark chocolate for his basket of cherries. Grandpa knew that grandma loved chocolate so he gladly traded. Grandma took the rich dark chocolate and blended it with grandpa’s favorite cherries along with a hit of amaretto and the Chocolate Cherry & Amaretto biscotti, was created. From that day on, Grandma always greeted Grandpa with a hug and kiss!
