Just don't get the drool in the brownies! They are really awesome. I am thinking that chopped dried cherries (NOT the icky candied kind) would merry (HA!) really nicely with the white chocolate and almonds. It would also looks very festive for the holidays!

I was thinking dried cranberries myself. I think I am on a dried cranberry kick lately. Hmmmm, I wonder if there is something missing in my diet that I am craving them so badly?

I've got some Dried Cherries in my cupboard right now. I've never really even heard of dried cherries until I moved up here to MI, but then, go figure, most dried cherries are made here. I'll have to add your idea to my files on what to do with dried cherries. Thanks kansasgirl!

Alix, do you ever make oatmeal cookies with these instead of raisins? Yummy stuff.

All the time! Oatmeal craisin is my favourite. I don't soak the craisins though. I found they get way too mushy. I like em nice and chewy.
