Chocolate Dipped Shortbread

Few things beat an afternoon cup of tea with a shortbread, crumbled and sweet- the perfect afternoon snack- but just as you think it can’t get better, dip it in melted milk chocolate and sprinkle a little gold dust on them!

I promised myself I would just eat the one of these to taste test before sending them off to people in lockdown for a sweet treat, but I have little self-control so maybe a ate a couple more.., anyway enjoy the recipe!

  • 125g Butter
  • 55g Caster Sugar
  • 180 Plain Flour
  • Chocolate for Dipping

Method-

  1. Beat the butter and sugar together- and siv the flour in.
  2. Bring the mix together with your hands and then turn out onto the kitchen side.
  3. Work with a rolling pin until its 1cm thick.
  4. Using cookie cutters cut the cookies out and put onto a baking tray covered in the baking paper
  5. put in the fridge for 20 mins, take out, and put in the oven for 15 mins after sprinkling with caster sugar.
  6. once they are cool melt some milk chocolate and dip the shortbread into the chocolate before putting it back into the fridge.
