Quick and easy chocolate cherry cookies recipe, made with a cake mix. Filled with buttercream frosting, cherry pie filling and chocolate shreds.
Add eggs, oil and vanilla extract and mix until smooth.
Scoop out small portions of the cookie dough and roll them into balls.
Roll these cookie balls in a bowl of granulated sugar.
Place them on a cookie tray, lined with parchment paper.
Use your thumb to make a small indentation in the center.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes or until they are firm on the edges.
Note: When you remove the cookies from the oven, you will notice the indentations are not that deep anymore. Press the back of a wooden spoon or the round bottom of a measuring spoon into the center again. You must do this quickly before the cookies have a chance to cool down.
When the cookies cool down completely, fill each cookie with some buttercream frosting. Leave some space on the top.
Fill the remaining space with cherry pie filling.
Top it all off chocolate shreds. Enjoy.
