Chocolate Cherry Blossoms

Chocolate and cherries go hand in hand like peas and carrots.  The chocolate covered cherry Hersey kisses are great.  So when I found them again at the store for the holidays I had to buy them so make cookies with them.  Hersey kisses are like M&M's so many different flavors for the holidays.
This recipe includes some dried cherries as well as the Hersey kisses.
Melt 3 squares of unsweetened baking chocolate.
Melt 3 Tablespoons of butter in the melted chocolate.  Set aside to let cool.
Add 1 1/2 cup sugar in a separate bowl.
3/4 cup all purpose flour
2 eggs
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/3 cup dried cherries chopped
Chop them well.
Pour the chocolate into the flour mixture.
Mix well.
Add the second 3/4 cup plain flour.
Add the cherries
Scrap the sides to make sure it is mixed well.
Add 1/3 cup sugar to a second bowl.
Make balls out of the dough.  Roll the balls in the sugar and then place on a parchment lined cookie sheet.  The dough is sticky and will make a mess on your hands.  Place in a preheated 300 oven.  Bake for 10-12 minutes.
Count how many cookies you have so that while the cookies are baking you can unwrap the kisses.
The cookies out of the oven.  Work fast now.
Place a kiss in the middle of the cookie and press down.
Let the cookies sit until the kisses set and are no longer soft.
