Can I use a whole wheat flour in this recipe, or is it something I have to use a regular white flour for? I love that you used the dark chocolate in this recipe because that is my favorite chocolate. I love brownies and shortbread, so this is going to be an interesting mix to try. I can't wait til this weekend when I have the time to make this dessert.
