  • 1.25 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 Tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup Crisco® All-Vegetable Shortening
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 2 teaspoons Crisco® All-Vegetable Shortening


  1. Place flour, sugar and salt in a bowl of a food processor. Process for 5 seconds.
  2. Add butter and shortening and process until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs and starts to come together.
  3. Place mixture on a sheet of parchment paper. With your hands, bring the mixture together into a disk. Roll out into a 8" by 5" rectangle. Place parchment paper with dough and place in freezer for 15 minutes.
  4. In the meantime, preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  5. When ready, cut the shortbread in half and then each half into about 1/2" squares. Bake one half at a time. Place shortbread bites onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, leaving about 1/2 inch space between them. Bake for 18 minutes.
  6. Cool completely.
  7. In a microwave safe bowl, melt chocolate chips and shortening until smooth.
  8. Place powdered sugar in a plastic gallon-sized bag and set aside.
  9. Place cooled shortbread bites in a mixing bowl. Pour chocolate over bites. Toss gently to coat.
  10. Place coated bites in a plastic gallon-sized bag with powdered sugar, close the bag and toss gently to coat.
