Barb Mullen


1 cup margarine
2 cups sugar
2 eggs
3 teaspoons vanilla
teaspoon salt
teaspoon baking soda
teaspoon baking powder
1 cup baking cocoa
3 cups flour
96 maraschino cherries, blotted dry

2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1 Tablespoon Crisco
1 cup sweetened condensed milk
6 teaspoons maraschino cherry juice

Cream together margarine and sugar until fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla. Add salt, baking soda, baking powder and mix well. Add cocoa and flour. Batter will be very firm.

Form into 96 balls, about 1 inch round, and place on ungreased baking sheets. Push one cherry halfway into each ball.

For frosting melt chocolate chips and Crisco in double boiler, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat; add cherry juice and sweetened condensed milk and stir until smooth. Spoon 1 teaspoon of frosting over each cherry. The frosting will spread over cookie during baking.

Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes.
