Almond Cherry Chocolate Chip Cookies

Almond Cherry Chocolate Chip Cookies

I gave a batch of basic chocolate chip cookies a cheerful twist with cherry chips and almond bits. And these have turned out to be my new favorite cookies. At least for this week anyway. ; )


I used blanched slivered almonds and chopped them up pretty fine … because I don’t like a lot of crunch in my cookies.


And the cherry flavor came from these NEW dark chocolate cherry flavored morsels. I first enjoyed them at an event hosted by Nestle a couple of weeks ago to showcase some of their new products launching in September. You may have already seen them in stores though.

They also come filled with caramel, peanut butter and mint flavor. Too fun! Oh and keep your eyes open in the freezer section too because they now have frozen cookie dough to answer all our late night cookie cravings. YAY!

Scooping is very satisfying to me for some reason. You can roll them in a few extra almond pieces of you like.
I love seeing these little domes of dough right before they go in the oven.

But I love them even more warm right out of the oven.

  1. I love almond biscuits my favorite, thanks for posting this recipe.


  2. Oh, seeing that flipagram from Tollhouse-I can’t help but think of the Friends-episode when Monica is trying to get Phoebes chocolate chip cookie recipe which Phoebe says is her grandma’s (or some relative) recipe and she pronounces it “Toulouse “and Monica’s like “TOLLHOUSE? That’s the “secret” recipe??” It’s soooo funny!

    The cookies look delic! Not a big fan of cherryflavoured things though. The caramelfilled morsels sounds divine!

  3. Wow. I need to find these. My waistline needs me to find these. Yum!

  4. Can’t find them anywhere! Winco had the other 3 flavors. Is there somewhere online maybe?

  5. I made these cookies and they were very expensive to make. Nobody liked them. I bake all the time and I think these were one of my least favorite ever. The taste is just odd.

  6. I love everything you do. I am in the middle of making the cookies right now and I noticed that the ingredients list has almond extract but in the body of the recipe it says, “add eggs and vanilla.” I assumed that meant the almond extract, not vanilla. At least I hope so.

    We have the caramel and cherry and peanut butter chips locally, but no mint so far. That’s the one I really would like to try.

  7. Wow, look delicious. I also bake and sell cookies in my bakery. My problem here is it is very difficult to get the medium size scoop for my cookie dough. What I did I took the 1tsp measuring spoon and use that as my tools to get it round. Now my cookies become mini cookies and my customer love them.

  8. Can’t wait to try those filled baking chips! Delicious flavor combo in these cookies!

  9. Yum I totally want these cookies. The morsels looks delicious I’m popping over to the US soon and I think I will pack my suitcases full of them :)

  10. These look great! They are essentially the flavours of a quintessential British bakewell tart in cookie form!

  11. OMG. The perfect cookies! Love the dark chocolate cherry filled morsels and the almond flavor. Just perfection!

  12. I thought I was the only one who gets off on perfect little cookie domes on the cookie sheets. LOL. Nice to know I have a kindred spirit.

  13. The cookies look amazing!! It’s a bummer I can’t get those dark chocolate morsels!

  14. I have some white chocolate chips on my fridge just waiting to be used! Maybe I’ll use them to do this, they sound delicious!

  15. In the video what is that cupcake with the dropper of what I presume is alcohol?
    If there is a recipe for it can you link it? If not can you make one? :)

  16. I am so jealous those filled chocolate chips look AMAZING (and the cookies too!)

  17. I like your idea of rolling the dough into the chopped nuts! The carmel filled morsels sound delicious too.

  18. Oh my! These look awesome. I am going to have to hunt down these cherry filled morsels and make these cookies.

  19. I have to make these for my family!

  20. Absolutely divine! I’m wondering if I can get these dark chocolate cherry filled morsels in this part of the world I’m living. Time to head down to the baking store.

  21. These must be brand new: they aren’t even listed on the toll house site. Will keep seeking until I find as cherry/chocolate/almond is a match made in heaven.

  22. I NEED these chips! Love the Cherry cordial=filled Hershey Kisses available in the winter. They sound divine. Thanks for the yummy-sounding recipe.

  23. These look delicious!

  24. I love the sound of these and now I need to hunt down some of those chips!

  25. I’ m having so much trouble finding even the normal butterscotch morsels here in Holland, I don’t think I’ll ever get my hands on these cherry ones…. :(

  26. These sound awesome!

  27. OMG filled chocolate chips?! Thank you chocolate gods :D cookies look good of course :))

  28. Looks so yummy!

  29. I NEED the peanut butter and caramel chips!
