For the recipe  Shortbread Bites

For the Shortbread:

125 g Unsalted butter or Margarine (4 oz)
55 g Caster Sugar (2 oz)
180 g Plain Flour (6 oz) Sieved
3 ml Dr. Oetker Madagascan Vanilla Extract (2-3 drops)
100 g Dr. Oetker 35% Milk Chocolate (3 oz)
Dr. Oetker Chocolate Hearts




Shortbread Bites

Heat the oven to 190°C/375°F/Gas 5.


Cream together the butter and sugar until smooth. Gradually stir in the flour and the Vanilla Extract to form a smooth paste.


Gently press the mixture into a square tin and bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes until pale-golden brown. Remove from the oven and leave the cool on a cooling rack.


To decorate, melt the Fine Cooks' Milk Chocolate by breaking into pieces in a heatproof bowl. Place the bowl over a saucepan of gently simmering water. Allow to melt then remove from the water.


Using a spoon, drizzle the melted chocolate in lines on the shortbread and place the Chocolate Hearts on top. Place in the fridge to cool and cut into rectangles to serve.
