Some of my favorite recipes are found on the back of the box or on the packaging of specific products such as chocolate chips or butter or sugar. This recipe for Cherry Bonbon Cookies comes from C&H Sugar. How can you go wrong with cherries and chocolate? I've adapted the original recipe just a bit. I love that this recipe uses fresh cherries, too!


1-1/2 cups all purpose flour 

1/2 cup cocoa powder, unsweetened (pick a high quality cocoa

1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened 

1 cup C&H Pure Cane Granulated Sugar (Ok, I felt I should put this in since it's a C&H recipe

1-1/2 tsp baking powder 

1 large egg 

1-1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract 

48 fresh cherries, pitted 

1 cup chocolate chips (6 oz) or chopped chocolate

1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk 


Preheat oven to 350 F. Combine flour and cocoa; set aside. In large bowl, beat butter, sugar, and baking powder until blended. Add egg and vanilla; beat until well combined. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Shape dough into 1 inch balls; place 1/2 inch apart on ungreased baking sheet. Press down center of each ball with thumb to create a small hollow. Fill each center with a cherry. In small pot over low heat (or a pot above another pot), combine chocolate chips (or chunks) and condensed milk; heat until chocolate is melted. Spoon and spread 1 tsp chocolate mixture over each cherry. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until done. Cool on wire rack. Yum!!
