Recipe: Toffee-Chocolate Chip Shortbread (The Kitchn)

I like to keep a few delicious recipes in my back pocket for holiday gift giving, like fluffy vanilla marshmallows paired with hot cocoa mix, espresso-spiked mocha truffle peanut butter blossoms, or homemade sweet & salty caramel corn.

These toffee-chocolate chip shortbread bars are the newest addition to that go-to list. Consider them the perfect "anti" Christmas cookie—meaning no rolling, sprinkling, or glazing required. Just lots of rich, buttery flavor and a heaping dose of love.
