Cookie swap: Grace's chocolate chunk cookies

The cookies are chocolate-rich and delicious.

  • 2 pkgs (8 squares each) semi-sweet chocolate, divided
  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine (I used margarine)
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
Heat oven to 350F

2 Coarsely chop one package of chocolate and set aside.

Place the other package of chocolate in a microveable bowl and microwave the chocolate for 3 to 4 minutes on medium power.  Stir until completely melted.

4 Add butter, sugar, eggs, flour, and baking powder.  Stir until blended.

5 Stir in the chopped chocolate and the chopped walnuts.

6 Drop by tablespoonfuls of dough, 2 inches apart, onto an ungreased baking sheet.

7 Bake 12 -13 minutes or until the cookies are soft to the touch, but tops are still slightly shiny. Cool on the baking sheet for 1 minute and then transfer to a wire rack.

Note:  to make without nuts, increase the flour to 3/4 cup to prevent the dough from spreading too much during baking.
