Holiday Tips from Dove and Martha Stewart

Holiday Tips from Dove and Martha Stewart

The bite-sized Dove Promises are one of my favorite types of chocolates to keep around the house for snacking. Each one usually has a fortune cookie-type message inside the wrapper, which I tend to glance at and then cast aside. Imagine my surprise when I found one that read: “Use cookie cutters as tree ornaments. Martha Stewart.” All of the messages inside Dove’s holiday Promises have tips from Martha Stewart herself – all of which I find a lot more useful than the generic messages that you usually find inside these chocolates! A few other food-related tips I found included “Decorate a cake with handmade whipped cream and fruit,” “Turn to a tried-and-true recipe for an important get together” and “Package cookies in a decorative bread pan wrapper with ribbon.” Other tips are more generally about the holidays, not just food.

The two flavors I found these in were the Milk Chocolate with Caramel and the limited edition Dark Chocolate Peppermint Bark. The peppermint bark flavor, by the way, is really delicious. The chocolate is creamy, with a nice snap to it, and the white chocolate layer has big chunks of peppermint in it. It is definitely a step above some peppermint bark I’ve tried, and I like the fact that they come in bite-sized pieces, too.

    dove does make a delicious chocolate but i usually dont buy their chocolate (or chocolate in general) because i’m prone to eat it all in a short amount of time!

    It’s interesting you like the Martha Stewart chocolates. I love Dove chocolates, and always look forward to reading the sweet messages around this time. I was disappointed when I opened my chocolate and read “Use cookie cutters as tree ornaments. Martha Stewart” inside.

    I make peppermint bark every year but I have never made it with two layers- now I see that everywhere. I’ll have to try it this year!
