Chocolate Chip Cherry Muffins

“I created these muffins this morning when I couldn't find a recipe for what I wanted. I get my dried cherries from nutsonline.com, and they are very moist (for a dried fruit, that is), so I didn't need to plump them first. Because there is so little fat in the batter, muffin papers will stick, so grease your muffin cups well. These do not rise very high, but they taste wonderful.”
