"From Everyday Food. I haven't tried these yet, but am planning adding to my Holiday cookie baskets. Update: Thanks to Gayla's kind review I had to make these NOW. Soooo glad I did, some of the best cookies I've ever made. Almost like a chocolate covered cherry cookie. Maybe I just make big cookies, but I only ended up with about 24, and 11 1/2 minutes was just the right bake time for my oven."
Serving Size: 1 (30 g)

"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."
"Delicious. One of my favorite cookies now."
"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."
"YUMMY! almost brownie like consistency. Also, used cranberries since i didn't have cherries. Great addition to christmas cookie platter. thanks for posting"
"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 :)"
"Great cookies! I only had one cup of dried cherries, so I added half a cup of cherry jam. Also, I mistakenly bought milk choc chips instead of dark ones, but the cookies still turned out awesome. Thank you for sharing. "
"Outstanding cookies! Very rich and very chocolately, reminiscent of brownies. The chocolate chunks and dried cherries are a wonderful combo. I melted the chocolate and butter in the microwave and subbed light brown sugar for the dark brown. This was one of my choices for the Pick A Chef game--I made an excellent choice! Thanks for posting the recipe! "
