Around the holiday season for as long as I can remember, my mom has made these delicious chocolate covered cherry cookies. They are, I can say without a doubt, my most favorite cookies in the whole wide world.
These cookies are not healthy by any stretch of the imagination, but you guys know I’m a firm believer in the fact that being healthy means not ALWAYS being healthy, if you know what I mean. Sure, I probably could have healthified this recipe, but sometimes it’s good to indulge a little in things that are worth it, and these cookies, for me, are definitely worth it.
Over Christmastime, Matt and I (with some assistance from my mom – “make sure you don’t burn the chocolate!”) whipped up a batch of these cookies for everyone using my mom’s old tried and true recipe.
I planned to share the recipe right away, but holiday relaxing got the best of me and before I knew it, it was January, and then I felt a little awkward posting a chocolate cookie recipe at the same time most people were jumping full force into new years resolution mode.
I had completely forgotten about wanting to share this recipe until this week when I started seeing all sorts of chocolate recipes popping up in anticipation of Valentine’s Day. Might as well add one more to the mix, right?
These cookies are rich and chocolately, and when you bite into them you get a burst of sweet, juicy cherry. Perfection. They would make a fabulous Valentine’s Day dessert!
I hope you love these cookies as much as we do. 🙂
