Chewy Chocolate-Cherry Cookies

If you love the contrast of chocolate and cherries, then you are going to love these amazing cookies!  This was one of the new recipes I tried this year because Tony loves cherries and loves chocolate, so they were begging me to try them.  And they did NOT disappoint!  They are SUPER gooey and delicious and you won’t be able to eat just one!

Chewy Chocolate-Cherry Cookies


  • 1  cup  all-purpose flour (about 4 1/2 ounces)
  • 1/3  cup  unsweetened cocoa
  • 1/2  teaspoon  baking powder
  • 1/4  teaspoon  baking soda
  • 1/4  teaspoon  salt
  • 1  cup  sugar
  • 1/3  cup  butter, softened
  • 1  teaspoon  vanilla extract
  • 1  large egg
  • 2/3  cup  dried tart cherries
  • 3  tablespoons  semisweet chocolate chips
  • Cooking spray


Preheat oven to 350°.

Lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup; level with a knife. Combine flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda, and salt, stirring with a whisk.

Then, place sugar and butter in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at high speed until well blended.

Add vanilla and egg and again, beat well. With mixer on low speed, gradually add flour mixture. Beat just until combined. Fold in cherries and chocolate chips.

Drop by tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart onto baking sheets coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 12 minutes or just until set (I think I baked mine more like 15 minutes, so check them around 12 to see if they’ve set enough or not). Remove from oven; cool on pans 5 minutes. Remove from pans; cool completely on wire racks.
