Chocolate Covered Cherries

Do you like chocolate covered cherries? My dad sure does. We buy Sarris chocolate covered cherries every year for Christmas and for his birthday. Sarris is a chocolate place in Pittsburgh, Pa.


Why talk about chocolate covered cherries? Well when I was going through my divorce years ago, I was trying to pull myself out of a funk. So I baked Christmas cookies. One was easy chocolate cookies.




Easy Chocolate Cookies

Even though the chocolate cookies were easy, and my dad loved them. That double chocolate cookies recipe was missing something. In comes LorAnn Oils cherry flavoring.


Double Chocolate Cookies Recipe

By adding in the LorAnn Oils’s cherry flavoring, it turned my double chocolate cookies recipe into chocolate cookies! But still, it needed something. So I decided to add a cherry in the middle with a chocolate drizzle for a chocolate covered cherries cookie!




Christmas Cookies

I made this batch of chocolate covered cherries cookies for my dad since he is a lover of chocolate covered cherries in general. He loved these Christmas cookies! Since I got his approval, I added these chocolate cookies to my list of cookie exchange recipes. Now I am sharing this double chocolate cookies recipe with you!
