Chocolate Cherry Treats

Nicole Bredeweg


My husband's birthday was coming up, and, while we were in line at Kohl's, I pointed out the cute little cookbooks shaped like the product that was selling them (like a Planter's peanut book may be shaped like an unshelled peanut). Before I knew it, he had the M&M's book in hand. Now -- the recipe: the cookies totally flopped. As in "puddle". And, in spite of their unattractive looks, THEY WERE AMAZING. I couldn't stop eating them. So, I wish you the best of luck, and, know that, even if they flop for you, they will be delicious!
