    Thumbs up Chocolate Covered Cherry Cookies

    Here's the cookie recipe I made for Valentine's Day.  They were wonderful!  This will definitely take care of any chocolate cravings.  I added some heart sprinkles to mine for fun.  Enjoy! 

     

    Chocolate Covered Cherry Cookies
    1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
    1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon baking soda
    1/4 teaspoon baking powder
    1/2 cup butter, room temperature
    1 cup granulated sugar
    1 egg
    1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
    1 (10 ounce) jar maraschino cherries, drained, reserve juice
    1 (6-ounce) package semisweet chocolate chips
    1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk

    In a large bowl, combine flour, cocoa powder, salt, baking powder and soda, blending well; set aside. In a mixing bowl, beat together butter or margarine and sugar on low speed until fluffy. Add egg and vanilla; beat well. Gradually add dry ingredients to the creamed mixture; beat until smooth and well blended. With hands, shape dough into 1-inch balls; place on ungreased baking sheet. Press down center of dough with thumb. Drain Maraschino cherries well, reserving juice. Place a cherry in the center indention of each cookie.
    In small saucepan combine chocolate pieces and sweetened condensed milk; heat over low heat until chocolate is melted. Stir in 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon of the reserved cherry juice. Spoon about 1 teaspoon of the topping over each cherry, spreading to cover cherry. If frosting seems too thick, thin with a little more cherry juice. Bake at 350° for 10 minutes, or until done. Remove to wire rack to cool.  Makes approximately 30 cookies.

    wow!! these are the same cookies that I made years ago for my husband for his birthday! He loves chocolate covered cherries. I got the recipe from a cookbook at the library. It was so many years ago that we didn't have a computer, and I was too lazy, I guess to photo-copy it, or write out the recipe and just returned the book. I recently tried to find the book at the library, but couldn't
    My kids also like chocolate covered cherries and I thought they would really like these -
    Now I have the recipe (I already copied it and put it in my recipe book)


    Thanks Amy!!
