Top Review by Zewbiedoo

Dried cherries soaked in kirsch is one of my favorite ingredients so I had to try this recipe. However, even though I only baked them 20 minutes they were a little dry and crumbly inside. Perhaps it was my oven? The taste was good - what's not to like about chocolate and cherries? -- but I was hoping for something a little more rich or moist.
