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.
