These easy Homemade Cherry Cordials are a sweet copycat of the store bought treats you find at Christmas and Valentine's.
Today is National Cookie Day, and I couldn't let a day like that pass me by, now could I?
Who comes up with these fun little "national" days? Not that I am complaining. Any day that celebrates more sugar is worthy of a national day by me!!!
Have you had a Little Debbie Cherry Cordial cookie? They are a seasonal item that only comes out at the holidays.
Homemade Little Debbie Cherry Cordials
Well, if you are a cherry and chocolate kind of person, I came up with a copycat cherry cordial just for you!!!
Two vanilla cookies, filled with a cherry marshmallow cream, AND drenched in chocolate!
What's not to like??? (well, unless you have a thing about fruit in your dessert:-)
I did make these for our church Life Group, but I am thinking about hiding them and just putting out the Oreos.
Then again with all the cookies and candies that come at this time of year, my jeans might protest at me eating that many!
Better go get them out of hiding!
Every Christmas I buy as many boxes of Little Debbie's Cherry Cordials as I can fit in the freezer and eat them throughout the year as long as they last, so I was very excited to try this recipe! Unfortunately I was disappointed.
These are reminiscent of Little Debbie's Cherry Cordials, but that's all. Little Debbie's have a cherry flavored filling between two soft, almost cake like cookies dipped in chocolate. This recipe uses two crisp sugar cookies which are not even close to the same texture. Also, the filling is more like a cake frosting than what is in the Little Debbie's. I can't even imagine the calories in one of these with all that sugar, shortening and butter, but I guess that's not the point. Anyway, they are OK but they are not Cherry Cordials as I know and love them, even if they do look like them. Don't know if I will make them again or not.
I'm so sorry these were not up to your Cherry Cordial standards. They are more of a look a like recipe, not an exact replica. The cookies should have been soft though. Mine were not crispy at all.
What kind of cherries(maraschino, bing) & cherry juice?
I used maraschino cherries and the juice from the jar. I hope you enjoy them!
I LOVE These cookies !!

These cookies look so professionally done! I can't wait to taste the cherry marshmallow creme myself. Thanks for the recipe 🙂
These look amazing! At first I thought they were made with store-bought cookies and filling and just dipped. Now I see everything is from scratch! WOW!
These truly made my mouth water.
So glad I clicked the photo on the TTT blog hop! 🙂
