Cherry chocolate chip cookies are the favorite around here. Made with real chunks of maraschino cherries and cherry chip cake mix, your family will LOVE these! They are a Valentine’s Day tradition, which is why I’m sharing them with you now.
Actually, these cookies are a favorite of mine since I have a love affair with maraschino cherries – just ask my mom about the time I opened the jars and drank out all the juice when I was a kid. My young self determined that if the cherries were still in the jar, it wouldn’t be that noticeable that I had decided to drink all the juice, right?!
