Chocolate Cherry Blossoms {Behind The Curtain Dessert Challenge}

I am happy to participate in Behind The Curtain Dessert Challenge this month hosted by a blogger friend, Sheryl from Lady Behind The Curtain.  This month's challenge is cherries and chocolate, so today I am bringing  Chocolate Cherry Blossoms. 

These cookies are easy and quick to make into a holiday treat.  Valentine's is today and what better time to make them.  All you need is 4 ingredients, a bought cookie mix, butter, cocoa, and an egg.   The cookie mix has a perfect texture, and I went with the Cherry Cordials to push down in the center.  

You may want to use Cordial Kisses if you prefer, but there is just something nostalgic about the cordial cherries I couldn't pass up.  I have fond memories as a child getting them for a Christmas gift.

Chocolate Cherry Blossoms

1 pouch (1 lb 1.5 oz) Betty Crocker's sugar cookie mix
1 tablespoon Cocoa, sifted
1 stick butter, soften to room temperature
1 egg
2 tablespoons water (optional)
24 Cordial Cherries
1 cup Wilton Candy Melts, melted according to package directions) Use whatever color you prefer.

Preheat oven 375 degrease F.  Line a sheet pan with parchment paper and set aside.

In the bowl of an electric mixer using the paddle atachment, mix together cookie mix, cocoa, butter, and egg until all is incorporated.  (If the dough doesn't soften up enough to all blend together, add a tablespoon of water.)

Using 2 tablespoon scoop, scoop dough onto prepared cookie sheet.  Bake for 9 minutes.  Remove from the oven and immediately place one cordial cherry in each cookie.

Allow to cool on parchment paper until they are cool enough to transfer to a rack and drizzle with melted chocolate.
