  1. Prepare Chocolate Frosting: Place 2/3 cup sweetened condensed milk (not evaporated milk) and 1/2 cup Hershey's Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips in small microwave-safe bowl; stir. Microwave at HIGH (100%) 1 minute or until chips are melted and mixture is smooth when stirred. Cool completely.
  2. Heat oven to 350 F.
  3. Beat butter, sugar, egg and vanilla in large bowl until fluffy. Stir together flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt; gradually add to butter mixture, beating until well blended.
  4. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Place on ungreased cookie sheet about 2 inches apart. Press thumb in center of each ball to make indentation; place one cherry in each thumbprint.
  5. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until edges are set. Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely. Spoon scant teaspoonful frosting over each cherry, spreading to cover cherry.

Loved the frosting on these cookies.

I made this as a present and they loved it. Next time, I will probably add a LITTLE more cherry juice to the chocolate, however.

I am going to bring this for our Annual Christmas Cookie exchange. They came out perfect! Although they make 32 cookies, not 42. I only used half a cherry so that I could cover it up with the...

I first tasted these cookies at a company picnic. I love chocolate and cherries and these cookies really hit the spot. Loved them!
