How to make chocolate dipped shortbreads
- Make the biscuit dough. Beat the butter and sugar together until creamy, then add the flour and use your hands bring the dough together.
- Roll and shape. Use a lightly floured rolling pin to roll the shortbread dough out. Stamp out the shortbread rounds using a 6cm round cookie cutter.
- Chill. Place on the baking tray in the fridge for 30 minutes to chill the shortbread biscuits. This will stop them from spreading out too much in the oven.
- Bake. 10-12 minutes is all the shortbreads need. They’re ready when they’ve turned a pale golden brown colour and the bottom is firm.
- Dip in chocolate. Once the shortbreads are cool, melt the white and milk chocolate in separate bowls. Dip the shortbreads in the melted chocolate, scraping off any access on the bottom, and carefully place back on the baking tray.
- Decorate. Sprinkle the freeze dried raspberries on top. Cute colourful sprinkles or freeze dried strawberries would also look great!
- Chill once more. Place the baking tray back in the fridge for 10 minutes to set the chocolate.
