Phew…sigh of relief. The holiday craziness is over. Does anyone else actually feel glad to have the busy holiday season over and look forward to hunkering down for the winter? I do, that’s for sure. And although I’m starting to cut back a bit after the all the holiday sweets, it’s nice to find a little treat that you can enjoy easily in moderation. I stumbled across these new DOVE® Whole Fruit Dipped in Dark Chocolate bites and I’m loving the flavor they provide and that little bit of sweetness I still crave, without being over the top. Not only are they enjoyed individually as a little bite sized treat, but they are also exceptional in cookies or as topping to ice cream, cereal and more! I turned mine into Oatmeal Cookies and I’m sharing with you the easy recipe today!!
First off, you need your DOVE® Dark Chocolate Cherries. I chopped mine up with a knife on a cutting board and set aside. As the #1 solid dark chocolate on the market, the unique, silky-smooth taste of DOVE® Dark Chocolate lives up to people’s expectations of what chocolate should taste like. Available in three varieties of real, whole fruit – cranberry, cherry and blueberry, DOVE® Fruit uses a delicious combination of real fruit dipped in silky smooth DOVE® Dark Chocolate.
Next I mixed together my egg, butter, vanilla, and sugars and then added the dry ingredients.
- 1 egg
- 1 stick of melted butter
- 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup old fashioned rolled oats
- 1 cup flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 bag of chopped up DOVE® Dark Chocolate Cherries
- Cream together egg, butter, sugars, vanilla, and salt in a large mixing bowl.
- Add in the oats, flour, and baking soda and mix til combined.
- Add in the DOVE® Dark Chocolate Cherries chopped up.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees and using cooking spray on baking sheet.
- Scoop 1/8-1/4 cup of dough onto sheet (roughly 6-8 per sheet) and bake for 11-13 minutes.
- Recipe yields 12-15 cookies.
These cookies aren’t overly sweet, but they are nice and soft and just a nice flavor to them…enjoy them with a glass of milk or surprise somet friends with them!! They’ll love the sweetness of the DOVE® Dark Chocolate Cherries…or you could mix it up and add blueberries or cranberries to the recipe instead! It’s a wonderful and unexpected pop of flavor…and what woman doesn’t love a little dark chocolate with CHERRIES in her life?!
