    Kat's Mom's Note:

    From the sales literature for the cookbook called "A Passion For Baking" by Marcy Goldman. I like that these have no cornstarch in them like some other recipes. These sound delicious and I am sure you could use your favorite chocolate bar. I am stashing this on Zaar to try with Reeses Cups. It is making me hungry just thinking about them! Just might have to break down and buy this cookbook.

      Oh my gosh!!! This is out of this world good!! The denseness and texture of the shortbread along with the chocolate made a FAVORITE treat for our Superbowl gathering last night. I put the tray out, went down the hall and when I came back over 1/2 of the shortbread was gone! I baked it on a single (heavy weight) baking sheet lined with parchment and lightly sprayed with Baker's Joy just to make sure it didn't stick. I formed in into a 12 X 10 rectangle and when removed from the oven, I used 1 1/2 of the Toblerone bars instead of 3 just because my shortbread was smaller. EXCELLENT RECIPE KM!! I can just imagine how good it will be with other types of candy bars too!!! Thanks for posting!
