Directions:

In a large bowl, stir together flour, cocoa powder, salt, baking powder and baking soda. In another bowl, beat together butter and sugar until fluffy. Add egg to vanilla; beat well. Put into flour mixture and mix well.

Shape dough into 1 inch balls. Place on ungreased cookie sheet. Press dough center with your thumb. Place drained cherry in center of each cookie (reserve the juice).

In a small pan, combine chocolate pieces and condensed milk. Heat until chocolate is melted. Stir in 4 teaspoons reserved cherry juice. Spoon about 1 teaspoon frosting over each cherry, spreading to cover the cherry. (Frosting may be thinned a little with more juice.) Bake in 350 degree oven about 10 minutes. Remove to wire rack to cool. Makes about 48 cookies.

I think you should give credit where credit is due. This recipe is taken from the book "The Chocolate Chip Cookie Murder", by Joanna Fluke.

Hi,

I googled this and found it in many places on recipe sites on the internet but I did find this acknowledgement:

"Winner Donna M. Farrell of Naperville entered her chocolate covered cherry cookie recipe: "Christmas and chocolate-covered cherries are forever entwined in my mind and memories. Not the expensive department store kind, mind you, with their dark bitter chocolate and runny syrup, but your basic Brach's. Each Christmas found the coveted white box stretching my stocking, two layers of cream-filled heaven with a cherry floating therein--and no requirement to share them with anyone.

"Taste and calories have kept me away from the box of delights for many years, even after the incredible discovery that Brach's actually sold these morsels all year long. (How my parents managed to deceive me on this, I'll never know.) That is, until my mother-in-law came to Chicago one autumn with the ultimate cookie. A Christmas tradition in one bite. Nostalgia from the oven. Capable of reducing this 36-year-old woman's taste buds and mentality to that of my 9-year-old daughter. A chocolate-covered cherry cookie!" from the Chicago Tribune annual Food Guide Holiday Cookie Contest December 4, 1986"

From: http://www.recipeland.com/recipe/43807/

The Chocolate Chip Cookie Murder was published in 2000 so it looks like she borrowed it from the Chicago Tribune.

We agree though that credit should be given when you found a recipe at another website or if you know the source of it.
