I know I’m guilty of neglecting my deep love of chocolate desserts. I have neglected my readers and their love of chocolate desserts. Most importantly, my family has been neglected. I think I have a delicious way of making up for the precious chocolate time lost.
When I was contacted by Dove Chocolate Discoveries to sample their INCREDIBLE line of chocolates, I was a wee bit excited!
Dove happens to be one of my favorite chocolates. While shopping with the kids and they aren’t looking, I usually sneak a bag of their amazing dark chocolates into the grocery cart. I then sneak them into the house and quietly eat them when they’re not looking.
This weekend we baked with almost every product from the line and made four different desserts! I will post the next recipe when I announce the winner this week. Every one of the products was exceptional. I couldn’t stop nibbling on the the milk chocolate-covered cinnamon-dusted almonds! Gabriella kept sneaking a bar from the milk chocolate box. My mom reminded me to make sure I saved her something to try.
I forgot to mention that they have a FABULOUS chocolate martini mix! Oh my goodness!

Read a little about Dove Chocolate Discoveries™
DOVE CHOCOLATE DISCOVERIES™ launched in February 2007 as one of the latest ventures from Mars, Incorporated. Now, a global leader in chocolate, Mars roots goes back to the kitchen. In the 1880′S, when Frank Mars was a young boy, his mother taught him to hand-dip chocolate. With his wife, Ethel, Frank started a home candy-making business in Tacoma, Washington, that eventually grew into Mars, Inc., a world-wide industry leader in chocolate confections. Going back to its direct-selling heritage, Mars created DOVE CHOCOLATE DISCOVERIES™. Since then, the Chocolatier sales force has taken off. There are now Chocolatiers in 48 states.
Petite Chocolate Mousse Cups
chocolate mousse (1 envelope of the mousse starter kit)
8 ounces (1 envelope) of the Milk chocolate-covered cinnamon-dusted almonds
12 petite chocolate dessert cups
1) Make the chocolate mousse according to the mix directions. Chill the mousse for about 2 hours.
2) When you’re ready to fill the cup, add the mousse to your pastry bag. We used a star tip. Fill each chocolate dessert cup with the chocolate mousse.
2) Grind the Milk chocolate-covered cinnamon-dusted almonds in a food processor. Do not over grind the almonds or the chocolate covering will melt.
2) Sprinkle the ground almonds on top of each dessert cup and ENJOY!
