Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Line a rectangular baking tin with foil, allowing some foil to hang over the edges. Lightly grease the foil.
Melt chocolate and butter together in a microwave-safe bowl in 30-second intervals, stirring after each melting, for 1 to 3 minutes. Stir sugar into chocolate mixture until dissolved. Cool mixture slightly.
Mix eggs into into chocolate mixture until well mixed; stir in vanilla extract. Stir flour into chocolate mixture just until cake batter is moistened.
Chop nuts and dried cherries by hand or in a food processor; fold into cake batter with chocolate chips. Spread cake batter into the prepared baking tin.
Bake in the preheated oven until brownies begin to pull away from the edges and are set in the middle, about 1 hour.
If the dried cherries stick together too much in the food processor, add 1 tablespoon flour and pulse.
