Coconut Butter Shortbread Bites

I think shortbread is my favorite type of non-chocolate dessert.  And since this recipe combines shortbread and chocolate it may be close to my number one.  Plus, I love an easy recipe and this one only requires one bowl, 8 ingredients and 10 minutes cooking time.

I have recently partnered up with Eating Evolved – a company that sells high quality chocolate, coconut butter cups, coconut butter, chocolate spreads and hot chocolate.  All of their products are organic and free of dairy, soy, gluten, and refined sugar (making them both Paleo and Vegan).  Eating Evolved’s philosophy is that chocolate is food, not candy;  which, as a chocolate lover, I whole-heartily stand behind.  Their products are healthy, low in sugar, free of preservatives and taste great.

My recipe for these Coconut Butter Shortbread Bites uses Eating Evolved Roasted Coconut Butter and their Crunchy Caramel Primal Chocolate Bar.  If you haven’t yet tried their products you can find them online and/or in many Whole Foods stores.  If you use my code “katiehtmt” during online checkout, then you can get a free product with your purchase.
