Cherry Chip Chocolate Chip Cookies

Cherry Chip Chocolate Chip Cookies

Brook’s Valentine’s Day Cherry Chip Chocolate Chip Cookies This is the recipe that inspired the “Cookin With Brook” section when I passed it along several years ago. (got the recipe from my mom in 1997!) Overwhelming requests from listeners for the holiday recipe launched our recipe section. Enjoy. They’re amazing and taste like NOTHING else!


1 box Cherry Chip Cake Mix

1/3 cup butter (softened)

1 tsp. vanilla

2 eggs


2 cups chocolate chips

(I add some red food coloring!)


Preheat oven to 350. Mix half the dry cake mix with butter, vanilla, eggs, and milk (if needed so they’re not too dry). Stir in remaining cake mix and chocolate chips. Drop by teaspoonfuls 2 inches apart on un-greased cookie sheet. Bake 9-11 minutes or until firm on the edges and soft in the middle. Cool 2 minutes before removing from sheet.
