Double Dove Chocolate Chip Cookies

My website is fixed! Please update your Google Readers

What do you do when you have an intense craving for Double Chocolate Chip Cookies, have all the ingredients but the chocolate chips, and there’s three feet of snow outside with blizzard like conditions?

You break into the chocolate drawer….


I broke into my beloved Dove Chocolate stash to complete these cookies.

Just so you know… I firmly believe everything happens for a reason.


There was a reason I forgot to replenish our stash of semi-sweet chocolate chips.

Dove Dark Chocolate Promises were meant to be a part of this cookie…


This cookie answered my chocolate cravings! These cookies are so rich, all I needed was half a cookie to satisfy my craving.



  • 2 sticks salted butter – softened
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 1/3 cups all purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup cocoa
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips, or 3/4 package of Dove Dark Chocolate Promises, roughly chopped


Preheat oven to 360 degrees.

Combine flour, cocoa, salt, baking soda, and baking powder in a bowl… mix together then set aside.

Cream butter and both sugars until light and fluffy (about 5 minutes at medium high speed.) Slowly add in flour mixture and mix at low speed until combined.

Stir in chocolate chips. Dough will seem thick… that’s okay, its suppose to be thick.

Drop dough (about 2 tbsp worth) onto cookie sheet. These will be a nice size cookie.

Bake for 12-14 minutes.

Let cool for 2 minutes on baking sheet, then carefully transfer to cooling rack.



Question of the Day?

What’s the craziest thing you’ve done to satisfy a craving? When I was pregnant, it was 9:30 at night, my husband was out of town, and I wanted ice cream so bad. I drove to the store in my sweats and Uggs, and couldn’t decide what ice cream to buy, so I bought 3 different flavors…. That was the most intense craving I ever had 🙂

    OHmigosh those look amazing – I love the Dove chocolate. Gosh, I don’t know what I’ve done to satify a craving – probably something similar, but I wasn’t pregnant, hah!

    Those cookies look really good. I looked for Dove chocolate yesterday at the store but I guess they were ALL OUT… I coudln’t find any.

    Love your craving story. I remember when I was in ESL my teacher was telling us about when his wife was pregnant that everynight at 11 she wanted ice cream but a different flavor so he would have to run out and buy ice cream.. once day he bought every flavor they had in the store so he wouldn’t have to make the 11 PM ice cream runs.. I always thought that was funny.

    I love Dove chocolate! I think my most intense craving was for peanutbutter cookies. But not just any peanut butter cookie…the Grandma’s Peanut Butter Cookies. Ever had those…A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!! I wanted one so badly one night that I made Keith pause our DVD and I drove the gas station to get them! haha! Keith just cracked up!

    Those look so delicious!

    Haha. Probably my breakfast this past Saturday 🙂 I wanted cereal and I can’t eat sugar so I crumbled up brown rice cakes. 😀

  9. Morgan @ Healthy Happy Place said on February 15, 2010 at 2:58 pm

    If I’m craving something I’ll do ANYTHING to get it. I would drive to the grocery store in the middle of the night if I wanted chocolate.

    Those cookies look delish!

  10. megan said on February 15, 2010 at 3:26 pm

  15. Angie said on February 15, 2010 at 8:59 pm

    I once walked at 2 am in downtown shady LA just to get to the nearest McDonald’s…I was really, really craving diet soda but didn’t want to fork $2 for the ones in the vending machines. Cheap or stupid? Probably both.

    The cookies look FANTASTIC by the way!!! OMG! Dove chocolates are awesome. I’m no chocolate-snob!

  17. One Healthy Apple said on February 16, 2010 at 12:00 am

    Those cookies are intense! I’m one of those people who doesn’t understand ‘too sweet’ or ‘too much chocolate’! I can’t think of the most intense craving, but I’m sure when I get prego I’ll be a nightmare!

  18. Joanna Sutter (Fitness & Spice) said on February 16, 2010 at 8:06 am

    Ok, now I’m craving these cookies. Thankyouverymuch!

  19. Beth @ DiningAndDishing said on February 16, 2010 at 10:41 am

    I LOVE Dove Promises! Those little sayings are so cute 🙂

  20. Angela said on February 16, 2010 at 12:26 pm

    Wow- Looks amazing! I’m always looking for new chocolaty concoctions, and I’ve never thought about using the Dove Hearts in my cookies. Great Idea! I am definitely going to try this one. ~Thanks

    Oh YUM! I am always using candy in cookies. My mother and my husband’s mother think our kids eat candy so they send it to them for every holiday. My boys are not huge sweet eaters. They like them, but they just don’t eat them that much (I think when kids aren’t deprived and they know how to eat…they eat right). Anyway, I am always trying to get candy out of my pantry, so I through it into cookies!

  22. carolyn said on February 16, 2010 at 3:48 pm

    hmmm…so I may have just bought 2 bags of clearance V-day dove dark choc hearts! what to do, what to do?

  23. Jessica said on February 16, 2010 at 3:53 pm

    Who needs chocolate chips when you can have it all with DOVE? I work with DOVE Chocolate and you should try Milk Chocolate with Peanut Butter Promises. You can make peanut butter cookies when the next blizzard hits. They are silky smooth and available at any mass food or drugstore.

    Dove chocolate is the best! These look so delicious.

    The craziest thing I’ve ever done? When I was pregnant with Maya I craved sugar non stop. Every day I would eat 3-5 cookies, and I mean BIG cookies. Ridiculous!

  25. lynn @ the actors diet said on February 16, 2010 at 6:40 pm

    yum yum yum!

  26. Amy B @ Second City Randomness said on February 16, 2010 at 8:12 pm

    Those look delish. But my question is… how do you keep a chocolate drawer? I’m jealous! If it were my house, I would constantly have to refill it! 🙂

  27. The Candid RD said on February 17, 2010 at 7:51 am

    Oh my gosh that’s going to be ME when I’m pregnant!! I can’t wait …. actually I think I will crave more salty foods than sweet, that’s my prediction, but I already crave ice cream so who knows!
    These cookies look fantastic, and you used the best chocolate. I think Nick would kill me if I broke up all of our Dove chocolate, but of course I know he would agree that it’s worth it in the end! Thanks for the recipe. Have a great day!

  28. Lu said on February 17, 2010 at 11:58 am

    Those cookies look great. The craziest thing I ever did for a craving was also while I was pregnant. I had to have grits with a fried egg on top. I made the hubby go with me late one night to get some. The preggie cravings would wake me up at night. So the temp on the oven, 360?

  29. Jocelyn @ Peace.Love.Nutrition said on February 17, 2010 at 12:06 pm

    Those cookies look delicious! I’m always craving chocolate! Thanks : )

  30. Nicole, RD said on February 17, 2010 at 1:56 pm

  31. Kitchen Harlot said on February 17, 2010 at 2:37 pm

  33. Light Delight with TouTou said on February 17, 2010 at 7:26 pm

    Oh Gosh!! so many chocolate!! I wish I can eat them without thinking about my fattening abs!! It is a really sweet treat will make my day!!!

  34. Fit Chick in the City said on February 18, 2010 at 6:17 am

    Yay, for getting your chocolate fix! That was one crazy ice cream craving you had! =)

  35. Spiceaholic said on February 19, 2010 at 8:01 am

    Say no more – you had me at double Dove chocolate! Great way to use the chocolates.

    Never been pregnant, so can’t use that excuse for the times I’ve driven to the store/fast food restaurant for a particular craving. It happens way too often though.
