If you love chocoalate covered cherries, you will love these. They are impressive and a new exciting delicious holiday treat.
This is a fabulous recipe if you love cherries and chocolate together. For best results "season" cookies in covered air tight container for 2-3 days prior to serving-cookies take on more of the cherry flavor by doing this and are more moist.
