Easy Christmas Chocolate shortbread is the best thing to make when you have run out of time to do your Christmas baking!
It’s December and I think I might have run out of time to marinate fruit and make Christmas pudding!
I always have plans and then I always wake up and think….oh no its only a week till Christmas.
If this is you too then this is an ideal Christmas slice recipe for you. I’ve been working on a gluten free version too, find it below. Once cooled they will be firm and easily packed into nice bags or containers for gifts. They can also be stored in an airtight container for up to a week. They are of course best eaten as soon as they are cool. (The only way to eat baked goods)
It’s nearly Christmas and there are so many things I should be happy about. Including friends who can making satidfying alcoholic beverages. This bottle of homemade Irish Cream that would knock the soaks off an Irish priest. This was given to me by Celia as a little Christmas cheer .
Now, back to these Chocolate Shortbreads I have sitting around. Make them they are easy and ever so tasty.
They are very simple and kind of like a very basic brownie.
