Do I Have to Use Dove Chocolate Eggs for these Thumbprint Cookies?

If you cannot get your hands on Dove Chocolate eggs I know there are other brands of chocolate eggs such as:
HERSHEY’S, Milk Chocolate Eggs Candy
R. M. Palmer Let’s Party Gold Caramel Balls

Just make sure you use a decent type of chocolate. Some non-name brands can have a shortening type mouth feel.
