do you think these would be good with dried cherries and special dark chocolate chips rather than the white and candied cherries?

I'd swap dried cranberries for the cherries. (or Trader Joe's orange flavored cranberries, even better)

Sounds great. I'm definitely going to try them. Does anyone else think these might be better with dried cherries rather than candied cherries?
