Who could resist such a buttery treat? These chocolate drizzled shortbread bites are so simple to make but they taste so good! The shortbread has the perfect melt-in-your-mouth texture.  I like the tender, but not crumbly, consistency of the shortbread and the way that it seems to melt in your mouth when you eat it. This shortbread recipe is very simple and uses just flour, sugar and butter. The shortbread has a wonderful consistency and a very buttery flavour, with hint of sweetness from the chocolate.
