haven't eaten them yet... Only got 24 cookies even using small cherries... I was using dark chocolate chips and cocoa..... my "frosting" sort of stayed as a glop on top of the cookies.. I'll modify that part of the plan next time... Nora

These are really good. I used dark cocoa powder and drizzled white chocolate over the tops after they cooled, and they looked beautiful. For a quick recipe, these look like you spend a lot of time on them.

I make these as a Christmas Gift for one of my chocoholics friends. She said they were to die for good!
