  1. Put the flour in a mixing bowl or a food processor, add the butter and rub it with your fingertips or process until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Stir in the sugar and chocolate then squeeze the crumbs together with your hands to form a ball.
  2. Press into an ungreased 18 cm shallow square cake tin and prick the top with a fork, mix the cinnamon and sugar and sprinkle half over the top. Bake in a preheated oven, 1600C set a timer for 25 minutes until pale golden.
  3. Remove from oven and mark into 12 bars, sprinkle the remaining cinnamon sugar mix and leave to cool in the tin. Cut the shortbread right through and lift it out of the tin, and store it in an airtight tin.
