Enjoy these delicious chocolate and maraschino cherry cookies baked using Pillsbury® refrigerated sugar cookies for an anytime dessert – drizzle with cheery liquid and chocolate chips icing for added delight!

Ingredients

Cookies

1
roll (16.5 oz) Pillsbury™ refrigerated sugar cookies
1/4
cup unsweetened baking cocoa
1/4
cup semisweet chocolate chips, melted, cooled
1
jar (10 oz) maraschino cherries, drained, chopped (3/4 cup)

Cups

36
miniature paper or foil baking cups (1 1/4-inch diameter)

Icing

1/2
cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/2
cup sweetened condensed milk (not evaporated)
1
tablespoon brandy or maraschino cherry liquid

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 350ºF (325°F. for dark cookie sheet). In large bowl, break up cookie dough. Stir or knead in cocoa and melted chocolate until well blended. Stir in cherries. Cover; freeze dough 30 minutes for easier handling.
  • 2 Place paper cups on ungreased large cookie sheet. Shape dough into 36 (1-inch) balls; place each in paper cup.
  • 3 Bake 11 to 17 minutes or until puffy and surface loses its shine. Immediately remove cookies in cups from cookie sheet; place on wire racks. Cool completely, about 15 minutes.
  • 4 In 1-quart saucepan, heat 1/2 cup chocolate chips and condensed milk over low heat about 3 minutes, stirring constantly, until chips are melted and smooth. Stir in brandy. Drizzle about 1 teaspoon icing over top of each cooled cookie.
Tips  

Because these cookies are very tender, it is necessary to bake them in the miniature paper or foil cups. Look for the cups in the baking aisle of the supermarket or wherever cake decorationg supplies are sold.
