After I made Marble Dipped Oreos over the holidays, I fell in love with the ease and their gorgeous look. So this is your warning. I have every intention of breaking out marbled cookies for EVERY holiday! Today, I’m sharing these sweet little Marbled Valentine Shortbread Cookies. I think shortbread cookies are a perfect cookie to add white chocolate to as they have a simple taste so the extra chocolate doesn’t overwhelm.
The steps for these marbled cookies are the same at the marbled oreos.
I decided to use pink and purple food coloring for these cookies and then wanted to a mix of both colors. So, I prepared and melted three small glass bowls with white chocolate melts in each.
Next, add in a few drips of your food coloring. I think I did just two or three drips. Using a toothpick, give the coloring a very light swirl. If you mix the coloring too much, it will loose the marbled look. Drip your cookie in the chocolate and pull out. You can either dip just a corner or an entire side. I went for the biggest impact, so I dipped most the cookie into the chocolate.
And lastly, using a sheet of wax paper, set your cookies aside to allow the chocolate to harden.
Ah, I just love how these cookies turn out!
I have purple, pinks and then the mix each in a line. You can see that I slightly over mixed the purple, as it’s a bit more cloudy of a marbled look.
Add some edible sprinkle confetti and you have yourself the most perfect little Valentine’s Day cookie treat!
