Dark Chocolate Cherry Pudding Cookies #HandCraftedEdibles

In an effort to make all of my holiday gifts this year, we are sharing recipes for hand-crafted edibles. Over the course of twelve weeks, we'll be sharing recipes that you can make at home to give to friends and loved ones, or things to serve at holiday parties. It's hard to believe we're at week 11. We hope you'll follow along for inspiration. You can find out more information, including the schedule: here.

This week, we are bringing you inspiration for your holiday cookie trays. Have you started with you holiday baking yet?


Cookies are my go-to treat for the holidays. I have already made an insane amount of cookies this year and I'm still trying to post ones I made last year. So here are a few recent cookie recipes I've posted: Turtle Thumbprint Cookies, Butterscotch Butter Rum Pudding Cookies, and Dark Chocolate Mint Cake Mix Cookies. In addition to those, you can find my 50+ other cookie recipes in one easy spot in my recipe index {here}.

This recipe is one I came up with last year when I did a Nestle Tollhouse campaign. They had their new filled morsels on the shelves and I excitedly came up with two cookie recipes for them. I am a huge fan of pudding cookies, so I knew that I wanted to make one recipe for pudding cookies out of the filled morsels. When I made these ones, I had my mom-in-law in mind. Each year, we get her some Queen Anne cherry cordials because they are one of her favorite candies. I knew she would love a chocolate & cherry cookie

I used one bag of the Dark Chocolate & Cherry Filled DelightFulls and then some dark chocolate chips. These cookies were so good. They were perfectly balanced. The cherry wasn't too overwhelming. I myself don't really like chocolate and cherry together, and even I loved them.

If you have yet to try the filled morsels - I highly recommend them. They are bigger than the average chocolate chip and they have cherry, peanut butter, mint, and caramel versions.
