Ingredients
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup light brown sugar, lightly packed
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • sprinkles (I used a combination of micro hearts, pale pink sugar pearls, white jimmies, and silver dragees)
  • 36 Dove® Milk Chocolate Promises
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F and line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Cream the butter, sugar, and brown sugar together on medium high speed for 3 to 5 minutes, or until fluffy and very pale.
  3. Beat in the egg on medium high speed, until completely incorporated.
  4. Scrape the bottom and sides of the bowl with a silicone spatula, then add the milk and vanilla, mixing on medium-high speed until smooth.
  5. Add the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt, and mix on medium speed until well-blended.
  6. Use a 1.5-tablespoon cookie scoop to portion out the dough. Roll between your palms to make a smooth ball.
  7. Lightly press the bottoms and sides of the balls into the sprinkles, and transfer to the prepared baking sheets.
  8. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until puffed and set around the edges but still soft in the middle.
  9. Press a Dove® Milk Chocolate Promise into the center of each warm cookie.
  10. Cool completely, then package in treat boxes and gift with an American Greetings® card.
