- 2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup butter cold and cut into cubes
- 1 tbsp red food coloring
- 1/2 cup white chocolate chips or candy melts

Add butter and red food coloring and process until mixture comes together into a ball. It will take about 30-45 seconds.
Press mixture into the prepared pan into an even layer. Note: If your pan is not nonstick, line bottom with parchment paper.
Bake until center is set, 15-18 minutes. Let cool completely in the pan.

Melt white chocolate in a heatproof bowl set over a pan of simmering water. Remove from heat when a few lumps remain, then stir until smooth.
Drizzle white chocolate over the wedges of shortbread. Let sit for 10 minutes until set.
