Sharon, these cookies looks so DELICIOUS. I bet they would taste like CHOCOLATE COVER CHERRIES. "PINCHED".

Hi, Bob. Happy Monday and happy cooking. These do remind me of chocolate covered cherries and I love them.

hi Sharon I can not wait to make these could you put mini chocolate chips in the dough also?

These were amazing. Just a perfect hint of cherry. Not too overpowering. Will be making again and again!!!!
