Chocolate Cherry Cookies

Chocolate cherry cookies
I'm still "cyberstalking" Color Me Vegan, the VegCookbook Club's February selection, until my library has an available copy. (Update: one of their two copies is now reported "lost and paid." Maybe a reader was smitten with the cookbook and didn't want to part with it?)

Just in time for Valentine's Day, I decided to try this adaptation of Colleen Patrick-Goudreau's chocolate cherry cookies, posted by another blogger, Niki of Meet Your Treat.

These cookies tasted much better than they looked, which was slightly turd-like. In hindsight, I think it would be better to bake and fully cool the cookies before adding the chocolate coating. Then the sauce wouldn't slide off the top of the cherry and puddle around the cookie. Otherwise the cookies provided a fine excuse to eat chocolate and Maraschino cherries together. They did make me hanker for a Shirley Temple or similar fizzy cocktail.
