1- 15.25oz. box Cherry Chip Cake mix (I used Betty Crocker)
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted
1 large egg
10-12 maraschino cherries, finely chopped
8 oz. dark chocolate chips (I used Hershey's Special Dark)

  1.  Heat oven to 350 degrees F.  Line baking sheets with parchment or use a silpat liner. 
  2. In large bowl, combine the cake mix, butter, and egg with an electric mixer.  Beat until the mixture comes together to form a dough.  (If it seems too stiff, add a TBS of "juice" from the cherries). 
  3. Stir in the chopped cherries and the chips.  
  4. Form by heaping TBS into balls.  Place at least 2" apart on prepared baking sheets.  Press down slightly with fingers.  
  5. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until set.  (I baked them for exactly 10 minutes in my oven, but ovens vary)  They may look a little under done when you take them out, but they will firm up as they cool. do not overbake!  Allow to cool on baking sheet for 2-3 minutes before removing to wire rack to cool completely.  
  6. Store covered.
