Combine first 3 ingredients in a medium bowl; add butter and vanilla, and beat at low speed with an electric mixer until blended. Stir in 1 cup chocolate morsels.
Press dough into an ungreased 9-inch square pan; prick dough with a fork.
Bake at 325° for 20 minutes or until lightly browned. Sprinkle remaining 1 cup morsels over top, and spread to cover. Cut shortbread into 25 (about 1 3/4-inch) squares; cut each square into 2 triangles. Let cool 30 minutes in pan before removing. Serve with ice cream, if desired.
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.
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.
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!!
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!
