The holidays are definitely upon us and ovens everywhere are starting to crank out holiday staples like cookies and pies. My oven is no exception! Dove® Promises invited me to bake with Dove® Dark Chocolate and there was no way I could say no! After all, dark chocolate is one of my go-to’s when it comes to baking.
I will admit that I usually eat the chocolate pieces all by their lonesome, but for this recipe, they were added to the tops of chocolate shortbread cookies and I am a changed woman! They are so creamy and smooth when baked on top of the cookie. Delectable doesn’t even come close to describing these cookies.
One of the things I love about Dove® Dark Chocolate, besides the fact that it’s not bitter, is all in a little green seal on the bag (you can see it in the picture above). It’s a Rainforest Certification. This seal means that Dove® sources 100% of its cocoa for its Dark Chocolate products from Rainforest Alliance Certified farms. Rainforest Alliance Certified farms meet several environmental and labor standards, which is good for the environment and cocoa farms around the world. That gets the FG Seal of Approval too!!

I can tell you that I’m personally looking forward to making the Chocolate Flourless Cake! It looks and sounds incredible!
Let’s get to making some cookies!!! They are only 4 ingredients and are delish!
