Chocolate Easter Shortbread Bars

Ingredients

  • 150gm pure icing sugar (1 cup)
  • 200gm unsalted butter ( chopped) (7oz)
  • 100gm dutch cocoa (1 cup)
  • 100gm flour ( 1 cup).
  • Silver sprinkles
  • colored sprinkles

Instructions

  1. Put all of the ingredients into a food processor and blitz till they gather into a ball. No longer as the dough will get warm and possibly tough. Just combine
  2. Push into a paper lined brownie tray. Push the dough evenly to the edges. I used the base of a glass to smooth the rough bits.
  3. Mark out the size that you would like to cut the dough. This will be cut when the shortbread is baked. 12 fingers or smaller pieces.
  4. Sprinkle the dough with a selection of sprinkles or colored sugar. Push gently into the dough to ensure they stick. This also creates a nice crunch
  5. I chilled mine for a couple of minutes before baking , just to rest them
  6. .Bake in a 170C/ 350F oven for approximately 20minutes, Cool completely before turning out and cutting
