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.
