• Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 (10 ounce) jar maraschino cherries
  • 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C).
  • Beat the butter and sugar together in a bowl. Add egg and vanilla and beat well. Add the flour, cocoa powder, salt, baking soda, and baking powder and stir until smooth. Roll the mixture into 1-inch balls about the size of a walnut (larger if desired). Place on ungreased cookie sheet. Press center of each ball with thumb.
  • Drain cherries and reserve juice. Place a cherry in indentation of each cookie ball.
  • In a saucepan, heat condensed milk and chocolate chips until chips are melted. Stir in 4 teaspoons of cherry juice. Spoon about 1 teaspoon of mixture over each cherry and spread to cover cherry. (More cherry juice may be added to keep frosting of spreading consistency.)
  • Bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes.
