Apparently this Chocolate Bar Shortbread Cookies tastes like heaven.
In fact, that is what it was called this weekend. Heaven that is.
My good friend Sophie is getting ready to welcome a beautiful bundle of joy into this world in about 6 weeks. When she invited me to her baby shower she absolutely insisted that I make Chocolate Bar Shortbread that she loves so much. In her words, its her “favorite dessert”. I made these for her housewarming party she had a few years back. She has been hooked ever since. After tasting them, who can blame her?! They are wonderful and just “stupid good”. Side note: Doesn’t that picture look “sexy”? Okay back to the subject at hand.
This is probably the easiest recipe that I have on this website to date. That is hard to say because everything on my blog, in my opinion, is easy. I guess this would be easier. If you love shortbread like I do then these cookies are right up your alley. What makes them so good is that they are buttery and soft with a subtle crisp around the edges. I mean they are simply divine. You can use Troberlone chocolate bars or Symphony Chocolate and Toffee bars can be a good stand in as well. In fact, I think just about any chocolate bar that will melt and spread evenly will just about work. I hope you enjoy them as much Sophie and her guests did.
