1 recipe Chocolate Cookie Dough (half 10-oz. jar)
maraschino cherries, well drained


1 cup (6-oz. pkg.) semi-sweet chocolate or mint chocolate
pieces, not milk chocolate pieces.
1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk, not evaporated
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 to 1 1/2 teaspoons maraschino cherry juice

Shape chocolate dough into 1-inch balls, using a heaping
teaspoon of dough for each. Place 2 inches apart on
ungreased cookie sheets. Push one cherry halfway in each
ball. When all cookies are molded and cherries are pushed in,

spread over cookie slightly during baking.) Bake frosted
cookies at 350 for 8 to 10 minutes until puffy. Store tightly
Frosting: In small heavy saucepan over low heat, melt
chocolate pieces with condensed milk, stirring constantly;
remove from heat. Add remaining ingredients; stir until

Tip: if desired, butternuts can be used for the maraschino
cherries and water for the cherry juice.
