Annamaria's notes for this recipe:
Panettone is a tradition Italian Yeast Bread with candied fruits. I used to buy it for my mom every holiday but good panettone is expensive. I found a recipe that is great that I make instead of buying panettone at an Italian Import store. It's cheaper and fresher.

Debby, what kind of fruit did you use and did you use choc chips??
user Debby DeRousse cakesbydebby - Apr 9, 2011
Hi Kristin, I used Sunmaid Fruitbits. I found them by the raisins at the grocery store. the fruitbits were perfect for this recipe unlike candied fruit that you use in fruitcake. Hope you can find them. I did throw a few pieces of chocolate chips in just to try it but think I will leave them out next time I make it, though my husband liked the chocolate chips.
