Chocolate Covered Cherry Cookie
Chocolate covered cherries are a gift all in their selves. For years we would give those we love a box of chocolate cherries. My sister in law also made her own chocolate covered cherries each year. January 3rd is the day to honor chocolate covered cherries and I decided to bake cookies with that same chocolate covered cherries flavor.
These cookies are a bit magic as you will not know the cherry is there until you bite into the cookie.
The cake mix helps make the cookie dough extremely moist and almost brownie like. This recipe is also easy to make.
