Oh my sweet, sweet dark chocolate….how I love you so.  And just like the Dark Chocolate Coconut S’mores Bars I shared just a couple of weeks ago, I got to baking with my DOVE® Dark Chocolate Promises last week and created yet another amazing treat to share with you all! And no lie-this may be my new favorite dessert! (Oh, and can I mention that I adore the cute quotes inside the DOVE® wrappers?)

I’m not a huge cake pop making person-they’ve always seemed more labor-intensive than a dessert should be, but I recently adjusted my method and bit and these were much easier!
