1/4cupall purpose flour - do not add more than thisyou will not need it
8ouncesbittersweet chocolateI used Ghiradelli Bittersweet Dark Chocolate Chips
2cupswalnuts or pecanschopped
6ouncessemi sweet chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Mix together flour, baking powder and salt and set aside. Melt 8 ounces of chocolate along with the butter in a double boiler (or in the microwave, 1 minute at a time at 50% power). Set aside the melted chocolate to cool slightly.
In a glass bowl, whisk together the eggs, sugar and vanilla until thoroughly blended. Place over a simmering pan of water and continue whisking until lukewarm. Stir the warm eggs into the melted chocolate. Add the flour mixture and then add the chocolate chips and chopped nuts.
Scoop rounded tablespoons of the dough onto a parchment or silpat lined baking sheet. Bake until the cookie looks dry on the outside. It should still be gooey on the inside*. This took just 10 minutes in my oven. Remove to a wire rack. The inside of the cookies will be soft when you place them on the rack, but they will firm up as they cool. Enjoy!
* Be careful not to overcook these cookies. I let one batch go a little too long and they were not nearly as amazing.
