Christmas Cookies: Dove Chocolate Drops Cookies

Christmas cookies made with DOVE® PROMISES® Dark Chocolate will soon become a family favorite.  DOVE® PROMISES® Dark Chocolates are melted with butter to create the base of these amazing Christmas cookies.

When it comes to baking Christmas cookies, I try to find an easy cookie recipe that has amazing flavor.  The holiday season can get so busy that it gets hard to find time to bake.  When I saw this Christmas Chocolate Drops cookie recipe on DOVE®’s website, I knew it would be a winner.  You simply can’t go wrong with a cookie that is based on melted  DOVE® PROMISES® Dark Chocolates.

I’ve mentioned before that I’m a bit of chocolate snob, and  DOVE® PROMISES® Dark Chocolates make my top 10 list of delicious chocolate. Not only do you use melted chocolate in these cookies, but you also chop up more and mix it in to the cookies. Chocolate with a side of chocolate.

The Christmas Chocolate Drops are really easy to make, too. I was a little concerned about the batter once it was made.  The batter is more like a brownie batter than a stiff cookie dough. But don’t worry! Just scoop the dough with a tablespoon or cookie scoop and I promise they will bake up into delicious, soft, chocolatey cookies.

    Yum! Camille, I love ultra dark chocolatey cookies. The fact that half the bag of Dove is melted into the batter sounds exceptional. Pinned! Visiting again this week from Inspiration Mon.
