Inspired by Cherry Garcia Ice Cream, this is the perfect recipe for big, chewy chocolate chip cookies filled with sweet bites of maraschino cherries and plenty of chocolate. Cherry Garcia Cookies taste just like a chocolate-covered cherry – and may be the best cookie combination ever – it’s no coincidence that these are named after the greatest player ever!
For something truly decadent, fill two Cherry Garcia Cookies with a scoop of Cherry Garcia Ice Cream for the ultimate summertime ice cream sandwich!
