Chocolate Cherry Biscuits

For Christmas I’m thinking of getting three t’shirts printed. One for Mr Chocolate and two for The Monkeys. What would the T’shirt have on it?…

I Love Biscuits

Seriously, the love those three have for their biscuits is quite strong. A biscuitless household is not very often. This recipe The Monkeys and I whipped up, (as I had seen a ‘Cherry Ripe’ ad, and the chocolate had embedded itself in my mind- who said advertising doesn’t work…sort of.)

With pudgy toes standing on a chair, and sticky fingers eager to help. An egg was cracked, flour was strewn, butter was softened, biscuit dough wedged in to floor boards, chocolate chips were nibbled upon and biscuits were eventually made. Watching both their faces as they tasted and tested, grinning from ear to ear as they discover the wonders of a new biscuit.

Choc Cherry Biscuits

125 grams softened butter

1/2 cup raw sugar

1 beaten egg

1 tps vanilla

3 tbls glace cherries

1/2 cup choc chips

1/2 cup desicated coconut

3/4 cup s/r flour

3/4 cup plain flour

Cream butter, sugar, vanilla together. Add the egg, and mix in. Add rest of ingredients. Mix well. Roll in to balls and slightly flatten. Bake until light golden at 180C.

  1. I think I like the description of the boys’ enjoyment more than the pictures of the biscuits. Although the pictures look quite yummy!
    (I just had a flash of your T-shirts- only in my mind’s eye they said, “Biscuit monster- with a great big smile under the words.)

    I think I shall make your biscuits today and rename them Cherry choc cookies! 🙂


  2. I am coming over to help you eat those. Be there in 33 hours or so. I am definitely going to make those. I had to look up what glace cherries are. Chocolate and cherry is a combo that you can not go wrong with.


    • Shayray like I said to TreeHugginMomma, I think they are maraschino cherries in the US (although if I am wrong please someone shout out.) The dried, sticky red ones anyway. How about I swap you for the afternoon, you can have a hot pm by the beach nibbling on some biscuits and I’ll go make snow men.


  3. Oh yummo!!!! I don’t like glace cherries but wonder whether the recipe would work replacing the cherries with something else … could you use fresh cherries?

    Or would I have to replace them with extra chocolate? 😉


    • Herby I’m not big on them either, but they were hidden enough in the biscuits not to over power the taste. If I was swapping I would add big juicy raisins maybe? Not sure about the fresh cherries with those quantities, but if you changed the other ingredients around too it could certainly work.


  4. Mmm, here here to the cherry/chocolate combo. I do enjoy glace cherries and most times have to stop myself from eating them before they get to the actual recipe they’re destined for. Wouldn’t it be nice if all advertising had this effect…see it – make it. The world would be a much happier place. I would love to here a Gruen analysis on this type of behaviour, haha! 🙂
