DOVE® Christmas Chocolate Drops

When it comes to holiday baking you typically need two things: butter and chocolate. So when Dove® Promises invited me to bake with Dove® Dark Chocolate I could not resist. Unlike other dark chocolates out there, DOVE® Dark chocolate is not bitter. Instead, it’s creamy and deliciously rich, making it difficult to bake with instead of devouring straight out of the wrapper (which by the way I love the little sayings inside each wrapper). I suggest buying an extra bag just in case you cannot control yourself.

In case a DOVE® Dark chocolate cookie with DOVE® Dark chocolate chunks isn’t enough to get you excited, how about some nuts? In my world, you can never go wrong with nuts especially when it involves chocolate so I was particularly excited about these cookies.

These cookies reminded me of brownie cookies, with their flaky tops and chewy interior stuffed with nuts – just the way I like my brownies!

DOVE® Christmas Chocolate Drops

Prep Time: 30 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Yield: 36 cookies

Ingredients:

1 bag DOVE® PROMISES® Dark Chocolate

8 Tbsp butter

1/3 cup flour

1/4 cup cocoa powder

1 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp salt

2 large eggs

2/3 cup sugar

2 cups chopped nuts (walnuts, pecans or toasted almonds)

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Line two sheet pans with foil and set aside.
  2. Melt half of the DOVE® PROMISES® Dark Chocolate with the butter in the top of a double boiler until smooth. Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature. Meanwhile, roughly chop the remaining chocolate and set aside.
  3. To make the batter, combine the flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt in a small bowl, set aside. In a large bowl, beat the eggs and sugar until thick and light yellow, about 2 minutes. Stir in flour mixture and cooled chocolate and beat for 1 minute. Fold in the remaining chopped DOVE® PROMISES® Dark Chocolate and nuts.
  4. Drop tablespoons of batter onto the prepared cookie sheet pans about 2 inches apart. Bake for approximately 10 minutes, or until just firm. Remove from the oven, transfer to a wire rack and cool for 5 minutes before removing from the cookie sheet pans.
