Dark chocolate chip cranberry cookies are delicious sweet soft and chewy holiday treats. The combination of melted dark chocolate chips and sweet cranberries is irresistible!
Folks these dark chocolate chip cranberry cookies are irresistibly soft and chewy.
They're full of delicious sweet cranberries and melted dark chocolate chunks.
Incredibly easy to make too.
I can guarantee these will disappear fast from your kitchen!
Seeing as it's Christmas I decided to "loosen" the healthy theme of my blog.
So these chocolate chip cookies should be eaten as a treat.
After all we all need to treat ourselves at Christmas don't we?
However, if you are looking for a healthier cookie, then do hop on over to check out my wholemeal chocolate cranberry cookies!
When you bake these in your oven and then take them out, it's highly unlikely they'll look as neat and round as mine do.
No, I will confess to you folks that I used a round cookie cutter to make these look as they do for the photographs.
In fact, let me also confess that with my first trial batch of these chocolate chip cranberry cookies, the cookie dough amalgamated into one large baked cookie! 😆
So don't worry what your cookies look like when they're baked. Just enjoy them!

Oh yes!!! Such a lovely combination. My favorite Christmas cookie that I’ve made a few times is a cranberry hazelnut cookie. I should add chocolate to those!
Ooh a cranberry hazelnut cookie, lovely! I can imagine they've got a lovely crunch to them! 🙂
Jeff the Chef
That's a very interesting, Christmassy combination!
Thanks Jeff! That's exactly what I hoped everyone would think of it! 🙂

I love cranberries in desserts...especially around the holidays! And while I'll never turn down a cookie, I must say that I'm often partial to a crunchy cookie. This sound delicious, and I love the cranberry + chocolate combo you've got going on here, Neil!
It's not Christmas without cranberries is it David? Nor is it Christmas without a cookie. Glad you like them. Thanks David. 🙂
While I like your healthy everyday recipes, I am glad you've decided to "loosen” the healthy theme of your blog, Neil. After all, that's Christmas! I do love the combo of cranberries and pecans, but the marriage of cranberries and chocolate sounds great too. Indeed, I don't even mind one amalgamated cookie...because I would still count calories as one serving, and the fact I've eaten only one cookie (even a gargantuan one) instead of 12 feels good to me 🙂
Ben, wait until you see my last 2 Christmas recipes. One tomorrow and then one next Tuesday. There's very little healthy about them! 😀
