This decadent, cherry filled, chocolate ganache coated creation originated with a convenient pouch full of sugar cookie mix - just add butter and eggs...simple.
I'm more of a sandwich cookie girl than a stencil cutout, paint the frosting on, kind of baker. So I just used a medium cookie scoop to make a good sandwich size cookie.
I had these plump gorgeous burgundy Bing cherries, the only type I like, that I wanted to do something creative with.
Next my mind went, as it so often does, to chocolate. So a rich buttery cookie with a gooey cherry surprise in the middle, and a dreamy coating of silky dark chocolate was born!
