Sweet Melissa Sundays – Double Dark Chocolate Raspberry Cookies

Double Dark Chocolate Raspberry Cookies by My Baking Heart

To me, there’s nothing better than chocolate… especially, dark chocolate. So, when I logged onto SMS to see what this week’s choice was, lo and behold, dark chocolate was in the title. Sweet.

Because of my obsession love with cocoa, I subbed dark chocolate chips for the semi-sweet ones. It seems I have fresh berries coming out of my ears this month, so I also used raspberries instead of dried cherries. I like cherry flavoring, but I’m not a fan of the actual fruit. And it worked out perfectly… because raspberries + chocolate (dark, of course) = pure heaven.

Chocolate and raspberries are a match made in heaven. I bet that these were even better than they look, and they look amazing! I love the pop of red color that the raspberries give your cookies.

Wow, I bet the raspberries were delicious in these! Perhaps I’ll give it a try – they’ve just started showing up at the farmer’s markets here. I thought these were mighty tasty cookies, if a tad too sweet.

Hi Jessica!

What a fabulous idea to use raspberries! They look like they were fresh, not dried- am I right? Either way, they look fabulous and I’m glad you enjoyed them.

I’d love for you to stop by my site if you have a chance to take a look at my cookies too! Have a wonderful rest of your week and I hope to talk again after we make the next SMS recipe ­čÖé

-Joy
