Chocolate Stuffed Mini Shortbread Cookies

If you enjoy shortbread cookies and chocolate mousse, what could be better than making a chocolate mousse filled shortbread cookies recipe? You can halve this recipe if you want to but remember the cookies are very small so people can easily eat several at once. They will keep for a couple of days in the refrigerator. The cookies are filled with a creamy chocolate mixture and then baked.

After that they are topped with mousse and you can either spoon the mousse in or pipe it using a piping bag. They will look fine if you spoon the mousse in but more elaborate if you pipe it. It can take a while to get used to piping though so you might have to eat your mistakes, which should not be a problem in this case because the little treats taste so good!

These dainty morsels are perfect for kids and adults alike. You can serve them at a party or even give them to trick-or-treaters at Halloween. A chocolate mousse in shortbread cookies recipe might not be the first thing to come to mind when you are planning sweet treats for a party or special occasion but why not? These taste wonderful and you are sure to love them.
