Outrageous Chocolate Cookies

If you like chocolate, cookies, and brownies, these are the cookies for you! They are a chewy, chocolate piece of heaven! I absolutely love cookies and have now found another favorite. 


 Outrageous Chocolate Cookies
(recipe from Martha Stewart)

8 ounces semisweet chocolate, roughly chopped
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
2/3 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 package semisweet chocolate chunks

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Heat chopped chocolate and butter in a microwave-safe bowl in 20 second increments, stirring between each, until almost melted; do not overheat. In separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt.

In a mixing bowl, beat eggs, brown sugar, and vanilla on high speed until light and fluffy. Reduce speed to low and beat in melted chocolate. Mix in flour mixture until just combined. Stir in chocolate chunks.

Drop heaping tablespoons of dough 2 to 3 inches apart onto baking sheets. Bake, rotating sheets halfway through, until cookies are shiny and crackly yet soft in the centers, 12 to 15 minutes. Cool on baking sheets for 10 minutes; transfer to wire rack to cool completely.

Makes 2 dozen

*Cookie batter will seem thin. It should look more like brownie batter than a cookie dough.
