26 or more Dove Promise Candy (I used both Dark Chocolate and Caramel Filled Milk Chocolate), frozen for 2 hours
1 1/2 cups butter, at room temperature
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla
3 3/4 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon kosher salt
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
Before starting, make sure you've frozen your chocolates for at least 2 hours.
Preheat oven to 375º. Line baking sheets with parchment paper. Unwrap candy and place back in freezer while you prepare dough.
In large bowl with hand mixer or in a stand mixer, cream butter and sugars till light and fluffy. Mix in vanilla and eggs till combined. Mix in baking soda and salt, then slowly add flour, and mix on low till completely combined. Stir in chocolate chips by hand.
Scoop out rounded tablespoons of dough, push one piece of candy into the center and roll until candy is covered by dough. Place 6-8 dough balls on baking sheets and freeze for about 20 minutes before baking.
Bake 12-17 minutes depending on size of your cookies or till golden and puffy. Cool for a few minutes on pan, then remove to cooling rack.
