These cookies are a triple threat: chocolaty, chewy, and gluten-free.
In medium saucepan, stir 1/2 cup chocolate chips and the butter over low heat until melted and smooth. Remove from heat; stir in next 4 ingredients. Whisk until glossy, about 1 minute. Stir in nuts, cherries, and remaining 1/2 cup chocolate chips. Scoop tablespoonfuls of dough onto 2 baking sheets lined with parchment. Bake at 350° until set, 13 to 15 minutes. Cool 5 minutes on baking sheet; transfer to wire rack.
