Chocolate Christmas Drop Cookies
Last week my husband and I attended one of our favorite parties of the year. A pre-Thanksgiving dinner. A Friends-Giving, if you will. There were about 150 guests this year and each couple brought a side dish or dessert to share. I brought these super chocolaty, ooey gooey cookies and they were gone in a flash. Now, these aren't the super healthy, vegan, gluten-free type of cookies I often post here. These are the real deal, perfect for holiday gift-giving, type of cookies. Made with DOVE® PROMISES® Dark Chocolate, these cookies are the best chocolate cookies I have ever had. They are made with melted chocolates, cocoa powder, AND chunks of DOVE® PROMISES® Dark Chocolate. These chocolates are so smooth and creamy and make deliciously rich cookies.
My littlest helper loved unwrapping the chocolates.
Christmas Chocolate Drops Recipe
Prep Time: 30 min.
Baking Time: 10 min.
Servings: Makes 36 cookies.
For the roulade:
- 1 bag DOVE® PROMISES® Dark Chocolate
- 8 tablespoons butter
- 1/3 cup flour
- 1/4 cup cocoa powder
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 large eggs
- 2/3 cup sugar
- 2 cups chopped nuts: such as walnuts, pecans or toasted almonds
- 2 cookie sheet pans
- Foil paper
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Line the sheet pans with foil and set aside.
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.
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.
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.
