Ingredients

1 cup chopped SNICKERS® Brand Miniatures for Valentine's Day

1/4 cup flour

1 tube (18 oz.) refrigerated chocolate chip cookie dough

18 pieces (1 cup) DOVE® Chocolate Hearts

Other supplies:

18 (12-inch) wooden skewers

18 (12-inch) square sheets various colors cellophane

12-inch strands curling ribbon

Non-toxic glue

Green construction paper

Green food coloring, optional

Directions

  1. 1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. 2. If desired, tint the wooden skewers with the green food coloring, and set aside to dry.
  3. 3. Knead together the flour and cookie dough. Finely chop 1 cup of SNICKERS®Brand Miniatures and gently knead the candy into the dough.
  4. 4. Shape the dough into slightly flattened 2 1/2-inch circles. Insert the skewers into the sides of the dough, and bake until golden brown (about 10-12 minutes). Remove the pan from the oven, and lightly press an unwrapped DOVE® Chocolate Heart in the middle of each cookie. Let cool completely.
  5. 5. To wrap the cookies, poke a tiny hole in the center of each sheet of cellophane. Slide a skewer through each hole, and have the cellophane "collar" the cookie. Completely cover each cookie by bringing the cellophane up and around, tying it on the top with a ribbon. Cut small leaves from the construction paper, and glue them onto the stems.
