Ingredients:

  • 4 (1 ounce) squares unsweetened chocolate, chopped
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips (divided)
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Directions:

In the microwave or in a double boiler, melt unsweetened chocolate, 1 cup chocolate chips, and butter stirring occasionally until smooth. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.

In a large bowl, whip eggs and sugar until thick and pale, about 2 minutes. Stir in the vanilla and the chocolate mixture until well mixed.

In a separate bowl, combine the flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt; gradually stir into the chocolate mixture.

Fold in remaining 1 cup chocolate chips. Cover dough and chill for at least an hour to overnight.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Roll chilled dough into 1 inch balls. Place on ungreased cookie sheets so they are 2 inches apart. Bake for 9 to 11 minutes.

Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
