Double Chocolate Chip-Cherry Chip Chippers







Double Chocolate Chip-Cherry Chip Chippers

Ingredients:
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup Hershey's Dark Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup Hershey's Dark Chocolate Chips
1/2 cup cherry chips
1/2 cup coarsely chopped pecans, toasted

Directions:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease cookie sheets.

In a medium mixing bowl, sift together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.

In a large mixing bowl, using an electric mixer on medium speed, beat butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar, until creamy-about 1-2 minutes. Add eggs and vanilla and beat until combined.
Gradually beat in flour mixture until combined. Stir in chocolate chips, cherry chips and pecans, until combined (dough will be stiff). Drop by heaping teaspoonfuls onto cookie sheets.

Working in batches, bake at 375 degrees F, for 9-11 minutes, or until set.
Cool 1 minute; transfer to wire racks to cool completely.

Yield: 2 1/2-3 dozen

  2. Do I get the whole so many ideas, so little time problem, or what? At least you baked something. I get bogged down in all the ideas. Those red chips are pretty cute and I've never seen anything like them. They look great in those cookies, though...

  6. I could see how those chips might not be the best tasting. . .I feel like I bought something similar once. . .and thought the same, they were kind of flimsy and chalkish. . .I just can't remember. I bet these would be good with those raspberry swirl chips, that I've only seen Christmas 2006.

  13. OMG! I saw these and went to chocolate heaven. They don't sell cherry chippers here (as far as I know), but I bet that glace or dried cherries would sub in well. YUM!

  14. SO thrilled that you're feeling better - it's always nice to be back to one's ol' better, healthier self :0)

    Oh my goodness gracious, cherry chips??? Now THAT is just too cool - especially since they make those already-scrumptious-sounding/-looking cookies even MORE tantalizing!! yum!!

  16. These would make ME feel much better and I'd lift a couch for them in no time. :)

  17. I have been wanting to play with chocolate and cherries. These look so good. I wonder how dried cherries would work with this?

  20. I've never seen cherry chips on our side of the country. I love the idea.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Whoa, those chips are like nuclear red! Crazy!! What do they taste like??

  22. Emiline your cookies look incredibly delicious and if I could get hold of cherry chips I'd likely bake a batch over the weekend!

  25. Those chips are so scarily red, but I have to admit they look smashing in the chocolatey cookies.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Look so good. I have never see such a delicious cookie.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Such a pretty hue of red. It brings out the deep dark goodness of the chocolate.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Cherry chips sound strange but the cookie was a good idea! Looks great too. I'm glad you feel better, I wish I was feeling better :(

  30. Those are so unbelievably sexy looking that I nearly just peed my pants. OK, not *actually* but I wanted to say how intensely awesome these sound and look!

  31. Emiline, I think these are going to be a perfect addition to our red carpet celebration, don't you? I mean, you will bring them - won't you? :)

    Honestly, they are gorgeous, but I've tried the flavored chips and I don't think I want to be a cherry chip anytime soon. To be so gorgeous, they should taste better, don't you think? It's like a brussel sprout, they look so cool and taste so . . . not good. Good thing you saved them with your amazing chocolate-ness.

    You've been busy, it's nice to feel like your ol' self again, I bet! Happy kitchen dance for you!

  33. That's excellent that you feel better. I love that you make cookies to celebrate your return to good health. What is it with these people that eat salads or healthy stuff? Forget that!

    Judging from how you described them, I might not give these cookies with those chips to the very young or very old or anyone with an immune deficiency disease. That red food coloring will get you everytime.

  34. Thanks everyone!

    Cat- Blueberry? Do they exist?

    Amy- Yeah, they're not too great by themselves.

    Glamah- Dried cherries would be great! I would prefer that. Dried cherries are about $5 here. So...I'm too cheap.

    Dana- They taste like artificial cherry flavor.

    Angie- I'm looking forward to our Oscar celebration!

    Sue- I've been eating soup the last couple of days, so these cookies taste really good to me.

  39. Emiline, do you have *any* idea how tempting those pictures are?! Actually, you probably do, since you took them and baked the little beasties, too. :)

  40. Those cookie look so good! I like the little red chips in the dark chocolate cookies. The melted chocolate ships are also really nice. Great photos!

  42. Glad you're feeling better. Those chips were a little disturbing, but in a good way.
