Easy and delicious! My boyfriend LOVES these...even without the chocolate topping! The butter is the key. Don't skimp and use butter flavored shortening (learn from my mistake as I was short butter when making a double batch so I split it), as you don't get the same 'shortbread' richness. I also find that I had to double the ingredients to make a decent batch. I've tried a few other ingredients too. I've made it with crushed Macademia nuts instead of mini chocolate chips in the cookie, and also for the topping when using chips in the cookie. I've also used regular chips instead of mini and it works fine. Instead of dipping one end, I find it easier, and cleaner, to just dip the top of the cookie lenghtwise in the chocolate, and then dip it again in whatever topping. (Coconut works, and tastes great too!) That way, you get the chocolate and topping in every bite! That is, if you can manage to eat one of these in two bites! Have fun trying. I like this recipe because even if I don't have what the original recipe calls for, I always seem to have something in the cupboard that will work!
