Lightly press chopped cherries between layers of paper towel to remove excess moisture. Blend cookie mix according to package directions adding cherries and almond extract, if desired. Refrigerate dough until firm enough to handle, about 30 minutes.
Heat oven to 375°F. Remove wrappers from chocolates. Shape dough into 48 (about 1-inch) balls. Roll balls in chopped almonds; place on ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake 9 to 11 minutes or until lightly browned. Immediately press a chocolate into center of each cookie. Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely.
