Cherry Chocolate Chip Cookies…

“Chocolate-covered cherries in cookie form,

taste as good as they sound.”

~ James Carpenter

These are extra special, double chocolate cookies…

using hand chopped quality 70% dark chocolate!


Can’t wait to start!


I use a fork to make my chocolate chips.

Flour, oats, cherries, chocolate and cocoa;

colour, texture and great flavour.


  • 50g rolled oats
  • 110g plain flour
  • 30g cocoa powder
  • 50g glacé cherries, chopped
  • 70g dark chocolate, chopped
  • 70g unsalted butter
  • 120g light soft brown sugar
  • 3 tbsp syrup
  •  1tbs boiling water
  •  1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  •  Pinch of salt

Melt the butter, sugar and syrup,

then watch the bicarbonate do its magic!


Pour the wet mix in to the dry mix…

it’s chocolate-cherry heaven!


  1. Heat oven to 160°C/325°F/gas mark 3.
  2. Line baking trays with baking parchment.
  3. In a medium bowl mix the flour, pinch of salt,oats, flour glacé cherries and chopped chocolate.
  4. Melt the butter and sugar with the syrups in a small pan, then remove from the heat.
  5. Mix the boiling water and bicarbonate of soda, then add this to the butter mix.
  6. Pour over the oat mixture and stir to combine.
  7.  Roll into golfball sized portions, place on the baking tray, then flatten each ball slightly.
  8. Bake for 18 mins, remove from the oven and allow the cookies to rest on the baking tray and firm up.
  9. Cool on a wire rack, the store in an airtight box.

Flatten, bake, cool and take in that wonderful smell of chocolate.


Crackly tops give cookies visual texture and a homey look.


Anyone for milk and cookies?
