Chocolate Covered Cherry Cookies

I made these cookies for a friend’s birthday party over the summer and they were a big hit. They are constantly requested and are becoming a Daisy signature! I have made them so many times that I barely need to look at the recipe anymore. I originally found the recipe on and have altered it to my liking.

My version of these cookies come out chewier than the original recipe (I also add more chocolate!). I purchase dried cherries in bulk so that I can make these cookies year round. The pop of cherry is a nice little surprise which complements the chocolate chunks quite nicely.
