Chocolate Covered Cherry Cookies
 
Chocolate Covered Cherry Cookies

1/2 cup butter
1 cup Imperial Sugar® / Dixie Crystals® Granulated Sugar
1 egg
1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup baking cocoa
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
48 maraschino cherries, blotted dry
FROSTING:
1 cup (6 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
1 to 3 teaspoons maraschino cherry juice

Directions

In a bowl, cream together butter and sugar until fluffy; beat in egg and vanilla. Combine the dry ingredients; gradually add to creamed mixture (batter will be very firm). Shape into 48 balls, about 1 in. round, and place on ungreased baking sheets. Push one cherry halfway into each ball.
For frosting, melt chocolate chips in milk in a small saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat; add cherry juice and stir until smooth. Spoon 1 teaspoon of frosting over each cherry (the frosting will spread over cookie during baking).
Bake at 350° for 10-12 minutes. Cool on wire racks. Yield: 4 dozen.

These are really good. We were fighting over who got how many.

Gonna try to make these this week, but not sure if I will use the frosting in the recipe, or use store-bought cherry frosting. - Will let you know if/how they turn out. http://i45.tinypic.com/35idrh3.gif
