These are a treat I make for the holidays. I found this recipe a few years back in a Chatelaine magazine. This recipe was submitted by a finalist in a holiday cookie contest. They are delicious!!! Here is the recipe's intro from the magazine.
"Michele Iwanus: registered nurse and mom of three, Bawlf, Alta., Finalist, Holiday Cookie Contest. These chocolate-cherry confections are perfect for family collaboration: As boys, Michele Iwanus's sons loved getting their hands sticky rolling out the balls, and now her young stepdaughter has mastered the art of the chocolate dip. Little wonder this no-bake recipe has been passed down through three generations: Michele's grandmother, Marjorie McDowell, first shared it with Michele's mother, Kathleen McDowell, in 1974, and now Michele consults a recipe card written in Kathleen's hand. Every year, Michele makes a big batch for her cookie exchange."
