Prep time: 15 min.
Baking time: 15 min.
Decoration time: 20 min.
What you'll need:
1 bag DOVE® Brand Rich Dark Chocolate Hearts
1 bag M&M’S® Brand Milk Chocolate Candies for Valentine’s Day
1 18-oz. roll refrigerated sugar cookie dough
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
1 16-oz. can vanilla frosting
Red food coloring
1 tube chocolate decorating frosting
What to do:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line the sheet pans with the parchment paper.
Knead the cookie dough with the flour until smooth. Divide the dough into 12 equal pieces. Press an unwrapped DOVE® Brand Rich Dark Chocolate Heart in the center of each piece of dough, then roll it into a ball and place on the prepared sheet pan, each piece about 3 inches apart.
Bake for approximately 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from oven, transfer to a wire rack, and let cool completely.
Tint the vanilla frosting with the red food coloring. Spread the frosting on top of the cookies, leaving a thin edge of cookie showing. Place an unwrapped DOVE® Brand Rich Dark Chocolate Heart at the top of each cookie for the ladybug’s head. Pipe a line of chocolate frosting down the center of each cookie. Dot both sides of each cookie with M&M’S® Brand Milk Chocolate Candies for Valentine’s Day.
Makes 12 cookies.
