Chocolate Cherry Nuggets Recipe @pinch

Dawn is right! Move over chocolate covered cherries, this is one good cookie. When you combine all the ingredients, the flavors work so well together. I especially like the addition of pecans ... it gives each bite a little crunch. I love to make these pretty little gems at Christmas and Valentines Day! I especially love the new Hershey Kisses with the cherry filling with these cookies! Oh, move over Chocolate covered cherries!!
