Buttery shortbread cookies dipped in chocolate and sprinkled with candy canes are all of the best holiday flavors: wrapped up in a holiday treat that requires only a few minutes time in the kitchen. These shortbread cookies look so pretty mixed in on a holiday platter and they always disappear in minutes.
For the holidays, I wanted to create a fun EASY treat that anyone can make with just a few minutes in the kitchen. As Christmas approaches, I always have big plans for baking and cooking days with the kids. What typically winds up happening is that we simply run out of time (and energy!) for those big baking days. These Chocolate Dipped Shortbread Christmas Trees only took a few minutes to make and they were so much fun to eat.
In case you've forgotten, let me remind you just how much I love Walkers Shortbread. I have been snacking on and creating recipes for buttery Walkers Shortbread all year. I simply cannot get enough!
For more easy holiday ideas, check out all of my recipes made with Walkers Shortbread:
Shortbread Turtle Cookies
Lemon Ginger Cheesecake Mousse Cups
Coconut Shortbread Truffles
Creamy Lemon Fruit Dip with Shortbread and Berries
For each of these recipes, the ingredient list is short and sweet; and the hands-on time required is as well.
COOK'S NOTE: These cookies can also be made with Walkers' Mini Christmas Tree Shortbreads or Mini Shortbread Fingers if they are available in your area. I especially loved the bite-size mini shortbreads.
