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.

Dark Chocolate 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.

    10 minutes was not long enough for these to cook. When cooling they flattened out very thin and were so doughy I could not get them out of the pan. I did not add the nuts as you said they could be done without; however maybe this is the only way to keep them together.

      Bake time definitely depends on a lot of factors. I always start around 8 minutes and then watch.

    An experienced baker would know enough to add butter and melted chocolate.but the recipe never tell you to do this. Other than that an excellent cookie

    How would they be without the nuts? Some of my family have nut allergies

      They would be just fine without the nuts! The real star of the show is the Dove chocolate!

    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.
