From Everyday Food. I haven't tried these yet, but am planning adding to my Holiday cookie baskets. Update: Thanks to Gayla's kind review I had to make these NOW. Soooo glad I did, some of the best cookies I've ever made. Almost like a chocolate covered cherry cookie. Maybe I just make big cookies, but I only ended up with about 24, and 11 1/2 minutes was just the right bake time for my oven.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350. Line three baking sheets with parchment. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt; set aside.
  2. Place chopped chocolate and butter in a large heatproof bowl set over a pan of simmering water; stir until melted and smooth. Remove from heat; whisk in sugars, then eggs til smooth.
  3. Whisk in dry ingredients just until combined (do not overmix). Fold in chocolate chunks and cherries; press plastic wrap onto surface of dough and refrigerate 30 to 45 minutes.
  4. Drop mounds of dough (equal to 2 level tablespoons), about 2 inches apart, onto prepared sheets. Bake just until edges are firm (but not darkening) 11 to 13 minutes. Cool on baking sheets 1 to 2 minutes; transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

These were a big hit here. Really decadent, perfect for any chocolate lover. Thanks for sharing the recipe, I'm sure I'll be making these again.

These were really yummy and decadent. I loved the cherries (which I don't usually have access to, but worth it if you can get them). I think it would have been easier to make these with a portion scoop, since mine tended to fall apart. I think I should have compacted them more before baking. I tried to use waxed paper instead of parchment because I was out, and didn't like the result. The second set (3rd pan that I didn't have prepared) I greased heavily which worked ok. I will make sure I have the parchment next time though.
