Yesterday I posted a Shortbread Cookie recipe. While they’re delicious as is… for chocolate lovers there is nothing better than a cookie dipped in chocolate…. and Grill already asked…no icing?? So here you have a variation that should make your sweet tooth a happy one.
I used semi-sweet chocolate chips, which wasn’t quite sweet enough for my taste…. I would rather use milk chocolate chips…. you can use any chocolate type that you prefer…
The ones in the picture are just dipped in chocolate… but if you want to get even fancier… after dipping them in chocolate, roll them in sprinkles…chocolate or colored for a festive cookie… I like to make some of these to mix into a cookie plate…. It just adds a bit of pizzazz.
Recipe: Chocolate Dipped Shortbread Cookies
All you need:
Shortbread cookies (see my recipe)
1 cup chocolate chips (any type)
All you need to do:
Line a cookie sheet with waxed paper and set aside.
Place the chocolate chips into a medium microwavable bowl.
Microwave on high for about 1 minute and stir.
Microwave again for another 30 seconds and stir.
The chocolate should be all melted and not too thick… if it’s too thick then microwave at 10 second intervals until you have the desired consistency.
Dip one side of the cookies in the chocolate and place on the wax paper-lined cookie sheet and refrigerate until set.
