Chocolate-Covered Cherry Cookies
Total TimePrep: 30 min. Bake: 10 min./batch
These cookies are amazing. I'm not sure if people are reading the recipe incorrectly or what, but you make your cookie dough balls, push cherries halfway into dough, bake cookies with cherries on top (no chocolate topping yet). Make your chocolate topping WHILE cookies are baking. When cookies are finished baking, remove from oven then add your chocolate topping over cherries. Cool on wire rack. Then enjoy.
What a great recipe! My husband loves chocolate-covered cherries, so these cookies were the perfect addition to my Christmas cookie tray. A bit more work than some recipes, but well worth it!
one of my favorite xmas cookies. Many request that they are on the cookie trays. A little more time but well work it.
I was really worried about putting frosting in the oven, but the frosting is really like fudge. It worked best for me, when I picked up each cookie to swirl on the frosting. In the oven the frosting does not melt. It doesn’t move at all. I’m sure everyone at work will love these!
This is one of my favorite cookies. Always a hit, wherever they are served.
I have never heard of these cookies, and I am a Michiganier born and raised in Michigan these 76 years. But I love chocolate covered cherries !!! So I HAVE to try this recipe !! They sound so tasty!!
In 1987, I found this exact recipe in a magazine given to me by a neighbor before I went to the hospital to have our fourth son. I have made this recipe every Christmas since, just as written. Perfection! Once, I found our 3 year old (that fourth child) eating a piece of burnt firewood from the fireplace, thinking it was a Chocolate Cherry Cookie. Today he is a pilot in the USAF and I send him these cookies wherever he happens to be.
I make these on the holidays and on Valentines Day. They are always a hit. I make the frosting more like a glaze, so the cookie stands out. I also, if the dough comes out a little dry, add some milk or cherry juice. These are a great treat.
5 stars beautiful and delicious, adding to my Christmas repertoire. A chocolate covered cherry cookie.
My family may have liked better if A chocolate drizzle over the cherry instead of covering with the frosting.
