Chocolate Cherry Glazed Cookie Bites

Happy Valentine's Day!  I can't think of anything sweeter than to share a savory chocolate recipe from Betty Crocker.  I made these beauties for the hubs to bring to work today. Of course we tested them out before sending them in! 

Trust me, they are as good as they look! Enjoy! 

pouch Betty Crocker® double chocolate chunk cookie mix
cup chopped maraschino cherries, drained
cup vegetable oil
tablespoons maraschino cherry juice
teaspoon almond extract
cup Betty Crocker® rich & creamy chocolate frosting
maraschino cherries with stems, drained on paper towels (from two 10-oz. jars)
  1. Line 24 miniature muffin cups with paper baking cups, or spray with cooking spray. Make cookie dough by blending cookie mix, cherries, oil, cherry juice, almond extract and egg until soft dough forms. Spoon dough into each muffin cup filling each about 3/4 full.
  2. Bake at 350°F 12 to 14 minutes or until dough is set. Cool 20 minutes. Remove from pan. Place cookies on cooling racks.
  3. Heat 3/4 cup of frosting on High for 30 seconds; stir. Dip tops of cookies into frosting. Allow to set about 1 minute; top each bite with cherry.
Makes 24 cookies


  1. Wow, those look luscious. You've got the Valentine's dessert down pat. I have a sweet treat linky party that's going on at my blog until 6PM PST tonight and I'd like to invite you to stop by and link your cookies up.
