Chocolate shortbread slice

Chocolate shortbread slice

I have discovered to my great delight that slices are easy to make, delicious to eat and makes for a great dessert. Chocolate Shortbread Slice is another one that I have just learned. The best part is there’s no need for baking…..just melt, mix and chill. The chocolate part was creamy and beautiful which goes well with the crunch from the shortbread. I love to see the big chunks of the shortbread in this slice. It gives you the bite as you eat it.

The first biscuit that I heard when I came to Scotland was shortbread. It’s one of my favourite biscuits. It is very popular here. However, the quality and prices differ from brand to brand. Go for the ones that use real butter. They have beautiful flavour and texture. Of course the best ones are those homemade. They are so fresh and smell so good.

For this recipe, I use the ready bought ones. The ingredients are very simple.

200g shortbread bars
450g dark chocolate
125g butter
1/3C single cream

Shortbread pieces

Use a pair of kitchen scissors and cut the shortbread into small pieces. Put them into a mixing bowl.

Put the chocolate and butter in a pot to melt under low fire. Then add the single cream. Stir to mix well. Pour it over the shortbread. Mix it up and pour it into a paper lined tin. Level the surface and chill until set before cutting.  If it has become too hard to cut, let it outside for sometime and it will soften.

You can of course use other types of bisuits for this slice.

This recipe is one of my all-time favorites and it is extremely popular in Beirut and is offered at every coffee shop and café under the name ” Biscuit au chocolat”. When I make it I make the sauce from scratch but I like your version better, just make a ganache and mix the two! Perfect!

SKip to Malou  on February 11th, 2010

Looks rich, creamy chocalatey… just the way I love it. Simple enough for me to try… i love it!

Food o' del Mundo  on February 11th, 2010

PERFECT! just enough chocolate - does the shortbread still have a little crunch after the baking process? ~Mary

Julie Lynn  on February 11th, 2010

Such a great idea! So easy to prepare and yet so pretty when it’s sliced. =) Does the shortbread stay crispy or is it softer after preparation?

Mary  on February 11th, 2010

@tasteofbeirut - Wow…I’m so excited to know that it’s extremely popular in Beirut :D Now I must make this all the time to share with my friends and talk about Beirut! Thanks so much for sharing.

@SKip to Malou - Thanks very much. Have fun making :D

@Food o’ del Mundo - Oh yes, it still has the crunch….that’s a relief :) By the way, there’s no baking needed.

@Julie Lynn - The shortbread stays crunchy so it was delicious. I love the chunky look of the shortbread covered by chocolate…looks pretty :)

Catherine  on February 12th, 2010
