    EXCELLENT....MELTS IN YOUR MOUTH. THIS IS THE EASIEST RECIPE TO MAKE AND TASTE GREAT.TO MELT THE TOP LAYER OF CHOCOLATE, I PUT IT BACK IN THE OVEN UNTIL IT MELTED THEN SPREAD IT.

    Super easy and gets rave reviews from everyone. I baked the shortbread an extra five or so minutes, and left it in the pan long enough for the melted chocolate chips on top to really solidify. A great dessert for a pot luck or other gathering; transports well and appears to take a lot more work than it really does!!

    This recipie is simple but the result is delicious. I loved the flavor the instant coffee added to the shortbread and the chocolate chips baked in the dough got soft. The shortbread almost melts in your mouth. I did add about a handful more of chocolate chips to melt on the top because I wanted a good layer of chocolate.

    Outstanding. Wouldn't change a thing...just double the batch because they don't last long.

    I will make these again and again. They were super easy and delicious. I used Starbucks Via and I admit they were a little heavy on the "coffee" flavor. Next time I would skip the coffee altogether. Using Saran Wrap to press dough into pan made it really easy to avoid a mess. All in all a GREAT recipe.

    I'd never made shortbread before & was anxious to try this one, it's a winner! To sum up the other reviews: Yes, it takes longer to cook. More like 30 minutes or until just golden brown. I omitted the coffee, as I don't normally buy instant & pressed mixture into a pie plate since it mentioned to cut into triangles. When done, I put choc chips on top, put back in oven for a few mins & then spread them when melted. Cool in fridge. Would be great w/ice cream, too!

    Everyone loved this recipe! My 17yr old wants an entire batch to himself. Found another use for Starbucks VIA!

    Very easy and unique tasting. I used Medaglia D'Oro instant espresso and it had a wonderful coffee taste. One thing I will change next time is not use so much chocolate on top or omit the chips in the shortbread because it tended to over power the shortbread. But all in all a wonderful treat and a nice ending to a meal even without the ice cream.

    Delicious! I cut the chocolate in half and used the mini-chips so they did not overwhelm the cookie. I agree that a robust coffee like Starbucks Via helps make these tasty! Will use this recipe again.

    Even though the recipe was easy, do not waste your time. The cookie was dry and did not have the buttery taste you want in a shortbread cookie. The recipe sounded great but was a disappointmet.

    This was good, but not great. The Slice and Bake shortbread cookies had a much better consistency. I'll definitely try adding the coffee powder to that recipe though, as the flavor was good!

    Hubby and I enjoyed these. They are easy and had all the ingredients on hand. I thought it had just a bit too much chocolate but husband thought they were just right!! A definite repeat.
