I made this dessert for Super Bowl Sunday. I actually altered the recipe quite a bit and the end result was Just Delicious"
I bought a jar of cherries and took out 18 cherries to dry, set aside:
I took chocolate chip cookie dough and pressed it into 18 small muffin tins, baking them for 10 minutes:
it was tricky taking them out of the pans, but even of they stick or break a bit,
They were repaired with a dollop of melted chocolate:
The best part is the filling:
Chop up the remaining cherries.
Add: 2 T cream cheese, 1/2 c cool whip, 1/4 cup powdered sugar and 1/8 t cherry extract and mix well.
Pipe it into the cookie cups:
Dip the cherries in a little melted chocolate and place on top - chill.
These did not last long on the dessert table on Super Bowl Sunday!
