These were a big hit here. Really decadent, perfect for any chocolate lover. Thanks for sharing the recipe, I'm sure I'll be making these again.

These were really yummy and decadent. I loved the cherries (which I don't usually have access to, but worth it if you can get them). I think it would have been easier to make these with a portion scoop, since mine tended to fall apart. I think I should have compacted them more before baking. I tried to use waxed paper instead of parchment because I was out, and didn't like the result. The second set (3rd pan that I didn't have prepared) I greased heavily which worked ok. I will make sure I have the parchment next time though.

I tried these because I love chocolate & dried cherries but a cake would go to waste in our house. They were a HUGE hit. My husband prefers them warm from the oven or rewarmed in the microwave. I agree. My 2 year loved them and at least the cherries were healthy.

Amazing! Gave these as a gift to a friend for her birthday because she LOVES black forest cake. Everyone at the party that tried one loved them. Got to keep a few for myself and they were really good. I ended up having to cook them a little bit longer than the time in the recipe - more like 15 minutes.

Only problem I has was keeping the family out of the dried cherries long enough to get them in the batter. They also freeze well-just kept scooping out and rolling into balls, then dropped in freezer bags.

These were fabulous cookies. I made a big double batch for my holiday baking, and these were my favorite by far. They were easy to make, and wonderfully rich. I highly recommend these to anyone who likes the combination of fruit and chocolate. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

These were a big hit when I took them to work. I did make one slight change: I only had 1 cup of dried cherries, so I added a cup of gummy raspberries. This recipes definitely a keeper!! Thanks for sharing.

I made these last weekend (have that issue of everyday food) and they are DELICIOUS...very chocolaty...my grocer didn't have dried cherries so I used cherry flavored Craisins and they were good...a big hit at the party I brought them to :)
