Reviews for Frosted Shortbread
"This is my go-to dessert recipe whenever I need something quick. I always get compliments."
"These bars are best served warm. My family loved them! They were so easy to make and tasted delicious! They have a nice buttery flavor and the chocolate eliminates the need to frost them. Really easy, quick, and yummy recipe! Try using 1 cup of chocolate chips if you don't have chocolate bars."
