For the chocolate lover this Christmas! These cookies combine dark chocolate, butter and your choice of nuts (walnuts, pecans or almonds). Yummy!


  • 1 bag DOVE® Brand Miniatures 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


  1. Preheat oven to 325°F. Line 2 sheet pans with foil and set aside.
  2. Melt half of DOVE® Brand Miniatures Dark Chocolate with butter in top of double boiler until smooth. Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature. Meanwhile, roughly chop remaining chocolates and set aside.
  3. To make batter, combine flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt in small bowl; set aside. In large bowl, beat eggs and sugar until thick and light yellow, about 2 minutes. Stir in flour mixture and cooled chocolate and beat 1 minute. Fold in remaining chopped DOVE® Brand Miniatures Dark Chocolate.
  4. Drop tablespoons of batter onto prepared cookie sheet pans about 2 inches apart. Bake approximately 10 minutes, or until just firm. Remove from oven, transfer to wire rack and cool 5 minutes before removing from pans.
