Double Chocolate Cherry Cookies

In case you haven’t already noticed with some of the other recipes on this site, there is not much I enjoy more than pairing a nice sweet fruity something with my old chocolate favorites and this is a delicious example of that past time! Double Chocolate Cherry Cookies are probably as good as a cookie could get for my tastes. I’ve also added some dried cherries to a plain dark chocolate chip cookie recipe before with fabulous results, so feel free to get creative with it! For this recipe, you can mix in some chopped nuts or substitute the cherries for another dried fruit like cranberries or strawberries.
