Big hit with everyone that tried them. I got requests for these from almost everyone that tried them.
I made these cookies for my husband's work Christmas party and everyone loved them and asked for the recipe. They tasted just like chocolate covered cherries and were a very simple cookie to make. I will be making them for my Cookie Exchange.
We took a favorite Christmas cookie - the Peanut Butter Blossom - and gave it a few new looks. These cookies aren't just for Christmas anymore - enjoy at any holiday!
