Irresistible Chocolate Dipped Salty Shortbread Cookies, perfect for holidays and parties!
Since our primary love language is food, we make all kinds of little goodies to give out to friends and take to school Valentine’s parties.
Can you guess what our star ingredient will be?
It’s indisputably chocolate.
You simply can’t have Valentine’s Day without chocolate, or at least I can’t!
My favorite treats to bake are cookies, i.e. perfectly portioned little love offerings.
In my opinion, there is one cookie variety that tops them all. Shortbread.
Buttery shortbread cookies are rich and light, flaky and dense. Yin and yang in dessert form.
A tasty contradiction.
Yet for Valentine’s Day my favorite is Chocolate Dipped Salty Shortbread.
I think we can all agree, chocolate and salt belong together. In Valentine terms, they are “MTB,” Meant To Be.
Salt brings out the brightest flavor of everything it’s added to. So why would we leave it out of dessert?
These Chocolate Dipped Salty Shortbread Cookies are easy to make, yet hard to resist.
The dough can be made up to two weeks ahead and kept in the refrigerator, for rolling and baking at a moment’s notice. Then sprinkle with a little extra sea salt on top, and dip in chocolate!
I like my Chocolate Dipped Salty Shortbread with semisweet chocolate. However, you can dip these cookies in milk chocolate, dark chocolate, really any variety of chocolate you like best.
All I really need is love, but a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt! – Lucy Van Pelt (from Peanuts by Charles M. Schulz)
These sweet and salty shortbread cookies are a guaranteed hit for any holiday. Swap your heart cookie cutter for other fun shapes and make them all year long.
