I am sort of a chocoholic. It’s bad! I keep a secret stash of chocolate on hand at all times. It’s my “emergency only” stash that I use when I get overwhelmed with all the duties of being a mom, housewife, & food blogger. Heck, who am I kidding?! I dig into that stash for more than just emergencies. Anyway, so I have recently grown fond of dark chocolate which is great because it’s healthier than milk or semi-sweet, so that’s a bonus too! Not all dark chocolates are the same though. A lot of them can be bitter; just not sweet enough. Others can be brittle & crumble to pieces, leaving me missing that melty, chocolatey satisfaction in my mouth. Bitter, brittle chocolate is no chocolate at all without it’s creaminess.

Dove®’s dark chocolate is a favorite of mine because it’s not bitter or brittle like most dark chocolate I have tried & hated before. It’s very smooth, silky & satisfying. This chocolate is creamy & deliciously rich. And the individual wrapped DOVE® PROMISES® Dark Chocolate are perfect so I can get that little boost of chocolate that I crave without going overboard. With these, I don’t really need more than one anyway because the smooth, velvety chocolate gives me the taste & texture I desire from my chocolate cravings.

Dove® also lifts my spirits with their little messages on the inside of the wrapper. I mean, just check out the first message I unwrapped:

Dove Wrapper

Sometimes a little humor & positive messages can really give me a boost in my day just like the chocolate. It’s a win-win situation! So let’s get to today’s recipe. I made this recipe straight from the website, no alterations. These cookies are basically a chocolate shortbread cookie with the Dove® dark chocolate center. They are fabulous warm from the oven with that creamy delicious melted Dove® dark chocolate smack dab in the middle. It’s almost like a molten lava cake, but cookie style! Enjoy!

Dove® Chocolate Creamy Cookies

Dove® Chocolate Creamy Cookies


  • 1 bag DOVE® PROMISES® Milk or Dark Chocolate
  • 2 sticks softened butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 6oz glass
  • 2 non-stick cookie sheets


  1. Place 12 DOVE® PROMISES® Milk or Dark Chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave, stirring every 15 seconds, until melted.
  2. In a mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugar. Gradually add flour and then stir in melted chocolate until thoroughly blended.
  3. Roll 24 walnut-size nuggets of dough into balls. Arrange balls 2-1/2 inches apart on a cookie sheet. Slightly flatten dough with the bottom of a lightly floured glass. Press a DOVE® PROMISES® Milk or Dark Chocolate piece into the center of each cookie.
  4. Bake in a preheated 350-degree oven until set, about 10 minutes. Cool before serving.
  5. A few notes of my own: Use salted butter if you have it. Flatten the cookies to about ½-inch thick, nothing thinner, & dust off any excess flour stuck to the cookie from the bottom of your glass.
