Chocolate Dipped Espresso Shortbread
If you follow me on Instagram (if you don’t you should, here) you probably recognize these beauties from something a posted a few weeks ago. Inspiration at it’s finest. I couldn’t get these out of my head since I first laid eyes on them and had to re-create them for myself.They were so good. I love coffee flavored things (coffee ice cream I’m looking at you) almost more than I love coffee itself. The espresso in this recipe gives it the perfect hint of coffee flavors mixed with buttery, salty, crunchy, goodness.
If you have a sweet tooth, I recommend giving these a try. They don’t make a ton of cookies so you won’t be tempted to eat more than your fair share (or if you ate them all it was only 8 (or however you cut them) 🙂 The inspiration used sugar on the chocolate rim, but I love sweet and salty mixes so I sprinkled mine with salt instead. It was sooooooooooooooooooo damn good. I couldn’t make up my mind between sizes so I cut my round into 8ths and then I cut half of them in half again. That’s why you see multiple sizesThey were the perfect little sweet treat for the end of a day or the cutest little snack to have with your morning coffee!
