Ingredient List
Prep Time: 20 min.
Baking Time: 10-12 min.
Refrigeration Time: 60 min.
Decoration Time: 15 min.
Difficulty: Easy
Servings: Makes 2 1/2 dozen
  • 1 8.5-ounce DOVE® PROMISES® Silky Smooth Mint & Dark Chocolate Swirl, divided
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup Powdered sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon vainilla extract
  • 1/4 tablespoon shortening

  1. Chop DOVE® PROMISES® Silky Smooth Mint & Dark Chocolate Swirl in to very small pieces; set aside
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together flour, cornstarch and salt; set aside.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, beat butter and powdered sugar until light and fluffy. Mix in vanilla. Gradually mix in the dry ingredients until well blended. Mix in 1/2 cup of the chopped chocolates.
  4. Shape the dough in to a flat disk. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate one hour.
  5. Preheat oven to 350º.
  6. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough to ¼ inch thick. Cut the dough in to desired shapes. Place the cookies 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets or cookie sheets lined with parchment paper.
  7. Bake until lightly browned on the bottom about 10-12 minutes. Don't over bake. Cool for 5 minutes on the cookie sheet and then remove to a wire rack to cool.
  8. When cookies have cooled, put the remaining chopped chocolates and shortening in a small, deep microwave-safe bowl and microwave just until chocolate is melted and smooth, stirring at least every 30 seconds, about 90 seconds total. (If desired, reserve 1 to 2 tablespoons of the finely chopped chocolate to decorate the cookies.)
  9. Dip each cookie halfway into the melted chocolate and place on parchment or wax paper lined cookie sheets. When all the cookies have been dipped, put them in the refrigerator to set the chocolate. Keep refrigerated until ready to serve.
