Cherry Bombs


 Think what a better world it would be if we all, the whole world,

had cookies at three o’clock in the afternoon and then

lay down on our blankets for a nap.

STEP 1:  To mixing bowl add dry ingredients:

2-1/2 Cups      Flour

3/4 Cup            Hershey’s Cocoa

1 Tsp.                Baking Soda

1 Cup                Sugar

1 Cup                Packed Brown Sugar

Mix dry ingredients, then add and mix until smooth:

1 Cup              Softened Butter

2 Tsp.             Vanilla

2                       Eggs

Step 2:  Roll into 1″ balls and press your thumb into center of each ball to make a little spot to hold a red cherry.  Drain a jar of Cherries, reserving 2 Tbl of liquid.  Drop a cherry into each chocolate cookie.

Step 3:  Microwave the reserved cherry juice, 1/2 bag of milk chocolate chips, and 1 Tsp. butter or oil until soft enough to drizzle chocolate mixture, with a spoon, over the top of the cherry-cookie.

Bake 350 for approximately 15 minutes, more or less.  You want the dough to just “set” so you have a soft, chewy cookie.

  • I divide the batch up and make some with cherries and chocolate sauce and some with M & M’s.
  • The cookie dough is a great base for just about any candy treats you want….kisses, heath chips, white chocolate drizzle.
  • You can get two or three “looks” out of one base batch.
