I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I am that Christmas season is almost here! Autumn is my favorite time of the year, and the Halloween-New Year’s stretch is a steady stream of fun and excitement for me. At Halloween, I get to dress up in a costume, eat candy and generally embrace my inner kid. Then Thanksgiving comes which means good, relaxing time spent with family and friends. And, of course, Christmas is right behind with it’s bright lights, cheerful music, and gift-giving spirit. (Sometimes I get confused and still want to dress up in a costume for Christmas. I may or may not own a life-size Santa outfit. Just sayin’.) Aside from the fun and festivity, one of my favorite parts about this time of the year is baking. Yup, baking. With all of the parties and family gatherings, I have ample opportunities to get into the kitchen and bake…which is one of my favorite activities ever! Some baking recipes can be rather difficult and involved which is fine by me…if I have the time. But time often seems to be hard to find during the holidays, so I am excited to share the recipe for these super-easy Dark Chocolate Creamy Cookies today.
These Dark Chocolate Creamy Cookies are perfect for bakers of all skill levels, and there are even plenty of places where the kids can be involved if they want to help out! The cookies themselves include melted Dove Promises Dark Chocolate which creates a rich, wonderful taste. But it doesn’t stop there! Another Dove Promise is lightly pushed into each cookie before it goes into the oven. These cookies are a chocolate-lover’s dream! As a kid, I was never a huge fan of dark chocolate. I always thought it tasted bitter, and it didn’t have that same creaminess as milk chocolate. As I’ve gotten older, I appreciate dark chocolate much more, but I still love the creamy deliciousness of a piece of milk chocolate. As part of this project with Dove, I may have snuck a few pieces of chocolate while I was making the cookies…and the Dove Promises Dark Chocolate is really tasty all by itself. It’s creamy like milk chocolate, but has a delicious non-bitter flavor of dark chocolate.
If you’re looking for an easy cookie recipe that is perfect to take for office or neighborhood parties, these Dove Dark Chocolate Creamy Cookies are the winner. These would make great neighbor gifts for the holidays, too. Just package up a batch of these cookies in a clear cellophane bag, add a handful of wrapped Dove Promises, and finish it off with a festive holiday ribbon.
