Chocolate Pecan Shortbread Squares (Gluten-Free)
Gluten-Free Chocolate Pecan Shortbread Squares never tasted this good! A two-layer dessert made of a buttery shortbread crust and a layer of sticky, chocolaty topping packed with pecans.
I love to serve this gluten-free dessert for special occasions such as Thanksgiving or Easter because these chocolate pecan shortbread squares are exceptionally delicious. The perfect squares will melt in your mouth. And plenty of chocolate, something that makes every dessert tastier…well, in my opinion.
Make the chocolate pecan shortbread squares in advance.
This gluten-free dessert recipe is always popular because you can make the squares in advance. First, you make the shortbread layer. This takes about five minutes. Then the shortbread is baked. After fifteen minutes of partially baking the first layer, you add the chocolate pecan layer and finish baking the dessert. Nothing to it 🙂
When it comes to holiday baking for Thanksgiving or Easter, traditionally, it is gluten-free pumpkin pie and paleo chocolate pecan pie. This year I am breaking the tradition and will make chocolate pumpkin cake with ganache and these delightful chocolate pecan shortbread squares. Shortbread is festive on its own but add a chocolate pecan layer, and, well, you know what I am talking about. It screams delicious!! I promise you, this chocolate pecan shortbread dessert will melt in your mouth.
This holiday season, I am sticking to tradition, well sort of, by making chocolate pumpkin cake and chocolate pecan shortbread, just adding a little twist to my favourite gluten-free Holliday desserts. Yes, I know a lot of chocolate, but if you can’t indulge during holidays when is a good time? What’s great about these squares is, you need only nine ingredients, and you can make them in advance.
