1/2 cup Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
1/2 cup Brown Sugar, packed
1/4 cup Butter, softened
1 Large Egg
1 cup Flour
1 Jar (16oz) Maraschino Cherries

1 cup Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
2 tsp Vegetable Oil
3 TBSP Maraschino Cherry Liquid

• Directions to make cookies:

• Drain your maraschino cherries well, and keep the juice! You will need the juice for the frosting.

• Remove from heat, and add 3 tablespoons of maraschino cherry juice; stir well.
