Chocolate Ganache Sandwiched Shortbread

Chocolate Ganache Sandwiched Shortbread


Makes about 1 1/2 cups

6 ounces semisweet or bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped
1 cup heavy cream
Walkers Shortbread Rounds
Crushed Peppermint Candies (Optional)


Put the chocolate in a medium bowl. In a small saucepan bring the cream to a boil, pour it over the chocolate and then let the mixture stand for 2 to 3 minutes. Stir the chocolate until it is completely melted. Let the ganache cool to room temperature, covered tightly with plastic wrap until ready to use.

Assemble: Layer one Walkers Shortbread Round with the Chocolate Ganache and top with one Walkers Shortbread Round. We rolled the cookies in the crushed Peppermint Candies to coat the sides.

The other shortbread sandwiches featured on the cookie plate are Marshmallow Sandwiched Shortbread Cookies and Lemon Curd Shortbread Sandwiches.
