1.  In a small saucepan over very low heat, melt the butter with 1/2 package [about 1 cup] of the chocolate chunks, stirring constantly until smooth. Set aside to cool to lukewarm.

2.  In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat the eggs, brown sugar, and vanilla until light and fluffy. Beat in the cooled butter-chocolate mixture.

3.  In a medium bowl, sift the flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt. Gradually stir into the large bowl of batter. Add the walnuts, coconut, raisins and/or cherries, and the remaining 1 cup of chocolate chunks; stir to blend. The batter will be stiff.

4.  Use a tablespoon and wet fingertips to drop 1-inch mounds of the batter onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper, keeping the mounds about 2 inches apart [the cookies do not spread when baked]. Grill, in batches, over Indirect Medium heat for 20 minutes, keeping the grill’s temperature as close to 350°F as possible. Let the cookies cool on the cookie sheet until they are easy to remove with a spatula, 2 to 3 minutes, and then transfer to a cooling rack and allow them to cool completely.
