These shortbread cookies have a double dose of chocolate and are the perfect pickup party bites.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 325°F. Using an electric mixer, beat butter, sugars and salt for about 1 minute. Beat in vanilla. Reduce speed and add flour in 3 additions, beating just until blended. Stir in 3/4 cup chocolate chips.

Step 2

Transfer dough to an ungreased 13-by-9-inch baking pan. Press dough evenly on bottom of pan with your fingers. Bake until golden brown, about 35 minutes; do not underbake. Let cool for 5 minutes.

Step 3

Cut shortbread in pan, lengthwise and crosswise into quarters, then lengthwise into 32 rectangles. Let cool in pan.

Step 4

Melt remaining chocolate and oil in a small saucepan over low heat, stirring, until smooth. Dip half of each cookie into chocolate; place on wax paper. Let stand until chocolate is set. (Cookies may be made up to 4 days ahead and stored, tightly wrapped, at room temperature.)

Wonderful. Adults and kids gave rave reviews. No, it is certainly not low fat, but wonderful for an occasional treat! Would definately make it again

Why on earth would anyone make a recipe that has 2 sticks of butter and 446 calories in a single serving? I'm sure it tastes good, but Silly and unhealthy.
