The combination of dark chocolate*, sour cherries and almond is sophisticated and, dare I say, boldly seductive. These are chocolate cookies for grown-ups, and a single batch provides about 50 ways to tell someone they're special.
*While the recipe calls for dark (70%) chocolate, in a pinch, I make them with Bakers semi-sweet chocolate, which has about 57% cocoa according to this article and all the adjectives above still apply.
In a heat-proof bowl over a small pot of simmering water, melt the chocolate. (You could also use a microwave at about 50% power for one minute at a time; stir after each interval until the choclated is melted.) Remove from heat and allow to cool somewhat.
