I made these last night as I'm a HUGE fan of chocolate and cherries PLUS the use of Splenda appealed to me for my dietary needs. I don't know if it was the Splenda or if there was too much flour, but these turned out dry. I had one last night and it was very chocolatey but very crumbly. Today I had one and while it was not as dry as last night, I still had to be careful as it crumbled quite a bit. Overall, the flavor was good, but I did not like the dryness.
This sounds very good. You must be an amazing chef
