Marshmallow and Chocolate Shortbread Slices
Can you say decadent and delicious three times fast? These shortbread slices are like a homemade candy bar, thanks to their crunchy cookie base, marshmallow filling, and chocolate coating. And though they are fancy looking, they are surprisingly easy to make. Almond meal and cocoa powder upgrade a standard shortbread dough, which are then topped with sweet-tart apricot preserves.

Bring these out after dinner and have everyone dig in to this sweet wonderland.
