Chocolate Bliss Cookies
- 2 pkg (8 squares each) Bakers semi-sweet baking chocolate divided
- ¾ cup packed brown sugar
- ¼ cup (1/2 stick) butter or margarine slightly softened
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- ½ cup flour
- ¼ teaspoon baking powder
- 2 cups chopped walnuts
Preparation time 15mins
Cooking time 28mins
Preheat oven 350 °.
Coarsely chop 8 of the chocolate squares; set aside. Microwave remaining 8 chocolate squares in large microwavable bowl on high for 2 minutes, stirring after 1 minute. Stir until chocolate is completely melted. Add sugar, butter, eggs and vanilla, stir until blended. Add flour and baking powder, mix well. Stir in chopped chocolate and walnuts.
(NOTE: if omitting nuts, increase flour to ¾ cup to prevent excessive spreading of cookies during baking.)
DROP rounded tablespoonfuls of dough onto ungreased baking sheets.
BAKE 12 to 13 minutes or until cookies are puffed and shiny. Cool 1 minute; remove from baking sheets. Cool completely on wire racks.
