What better way to spend a day off work than making cookies? These are a Martha Stewart recipe and will please the chocolate lover at your house, actually please may not be a big enough word, they will send the chocolate lover at your house into a blissful state of joy! 🙂 (If such a person exists at your house, you might want to double the recipe like I did because 2 dozen just won’t be enough!)
8 ounces semisweet chocolate, roughly chopped (I used chocolate chips)
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
2/3 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 (12 oz) package semisweet chocolate chunks (I used chips here too)
1 Preheat oven to 350. Heat chopped chocolate and butter in microwave safe bowl in 20 second intervals, stirring between each, until almost melted; do not overheat. In another bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt.
2 Beat together eggs, brown sugar and vanilla on high until light and fluffy. Reduce speed to low and beat in melted chocolate. Mix in flour mixture until just combined. Stir in chocolate chunks.
3 Drop heaping tablespoons of dough 2 – 3″ apart onto baking sheets. Bake, rotating sheets halfway through, until cookies are shiny and crackly yet soft in centers, 12 – 15 minutes. Cool on baking sheets 10 minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.
