Chocolate Chip Shortbread

Right, if you haven’t notice I’ve been rather busy of late! Law school is in full flow and I’m trying to keep down a job at the same time, as well as having a thriving social life. Oh yeah, I’m so cool I have a thriving social life! I think I’m actually going out even more than I did at uni; between hanging out with my boyfriend (yay no more long distance) being close to university friends, new friends and old friends, as well as all of Jon’s work friends, we have more than enough play dates to keep us occupied.
Nevertheless I HAVE still been cooking! It’s just taken me a little while to find the time to share the recipes with you.
But, as I’ve been super busy at law school, I thought it was appropriate to share one of my more student friendly recipes – Chocolate Shortbread. Super cheap it only requires 4 ingredients – 3 if you don’t fancy going all out and adding in the chocolate!

I must say, this recipe originated over at the Good Food Website, but took a number of attempts due to the ridiculous suggestion as to how much butter the recipe should contain. If you follow their recipe you end up with a crumbly mix that won’t hold together… beware!
But, it doesn’t matter whether you’re a fresher or a finalist, THIS recipe is a student staple that will get you through the breakups, the hangovers, the coursework deadlines and revision stress. It’s a little bit of heaven that doesn’t cost the earth.

NB. This recipe makes roughly 20 'sticks' of shortbread.
If you like this recipe, you’ll also LOVE this flapjack recipe: another one to share with the flatmates.

Pricing (based on Asda’s own unless otherwise specified):
Butter 90p, flour 10.5p, Silver Spoon caster sugar 59p, Silver Spoon chocolate chips 52.5p
Total = £2.12
Per shortbread piece = 10.6p
