Total Time


3 (1-ounce) squares unsweetened baking chocolate

3 tablespoons Land O Lakes® Butter, softened

1 1/2 cups sugar

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

2 large Land O Lakes® Eggs

1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1/3 cup dried cherries, chopped

1/3 cup sugar

1 (11-ounce) bag (60) cherry cordial crème chocolate candy pieces,  unwrapped


 *Substitute your favorite variety chocolate candy piece.

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 300°F.

  2. STEP 2

    Place unsweetened chocolate in bowl. Microwave, stirring every 30 seconds, 1-1 1/2 minutes or until melted. Add butter; stir until butter is melted. Cool 10 minutes.

  3. STEP 3

    Combine melted chocolate mixture, 1 1/2 cups sugar, 3/4 cup flour, eggs and baking powder in bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until well mixed. Add remaining 3/4 cup flour and dried cherries; beat at low speed just until well mixed.

  4. STEP 4

    Place 1/3 cup sugar into another bowl. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Roll in sugar. Place, 2 inches apart, onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 10-12 minutes or until top is cracked and set.

  5. STEP 5

    Press 1 cherry chocolate candy piece immediately into each cookie. Remove to cooling rack. Cool completely or about 1 hour until chocolate is set. Store between sheets of waxed paper in container with tight-fitting lid up to 5 days.

Tip #1

The cookie dough may also be rolled in powdered sugar for a frosty white crinkled effect.

Tip #2

Increase chopped dried cherries to 1/2 cup for extra cherry flavor.
