- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a cookie sheet; set aside. In a medium heavy saucepan combine 1 cup of the chocolate pieces, the unsweetened chocolate, and butter. Cook and stir over low heat until melted. Remove from heat.
- Add eggs, sugar, flour, vanilla, and baking powder. Beat with a wooden spoon until combined, scraping sides of pan. (Mixture will be thin.) Stir in remaining 1 cup chocolate pieces and nuts.
- Drop dough by rounded teaspoons 2 inches apart onto the prepared cookie sheet. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until edges are firm and surfaces are dull and crackled. Cool on cookie sheet for 2 minutes. Transfer cookies to a wire rack and let cool.

2 stars, OK, but not our cup of tea. Don't know what happened to all the reviews I saw originally that said not to over bake, which may have helped a bit, but these are not sweet cookies. Easy to make but if you print off the instructions make a BIG note next to 1st ingredient (bag of chocolate chips)--DIVIDED--so you don't do like I did, dump the whole bag in & have to start over. Easy to make. I think I would have preferred milk chocolate & no nuts, but then those would be other recipes, wouldn't they? And for me, there are just tons of other ones out there I like better.

the key to these cookies is to watch the edges for the slightest bit of brownness , and watch for the tops to dull in color . overbaking is disasterous . they are so rich it pays to have an entire milk cow handy . im going to town right now to get ingredients . i prefer chopped walnuts in them .
