Super Chocolate-y, Chocolate-Chocolate Chunk Cookies....
I tore this out of a magazine a couple of weeks ago and gave them a try.... wow, if your looking for chocolate go no further! These come out very chewy - think brownies with big hunks of chocolate in them.

Bakerís One Bowl Chocolate Chocolate Chunk Cookie

(This was an advertisement for Bakerís Chocolate; they called it the ultimate chocolate cookie. They may be right these are very rich.)
Prep time: 15 minutes; Bake time: 12 minutes

2 pkgs. (16 squares) Bakerís Semi-Sweet Baking Chocolate, divided
3/4 c firmly packed brown sugar
1/4 c butter or margarine
2 eggs
1 t vanilla
1/2 c flour
1/4 t baking powder
2 c chopped nuts (optional)

Heat oven to 350ļF. Coarsely chop 8 squares (1 pkg.) of chocolate; set aside. Microwave remaining squares on large microwavable bowl on high 1-2 minutes. Stir until chocolate is melted and smooth. Stir in sugar, butter, eggs, and vanilla. Stir in flour and baking powder. Stir in reserved chopped nuts and chocolate. Drop by the 1/4 cupful onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 12-13 minutes or until cookies are puffed and feel set to the touch. Cool on cookie sheet 1 minute. Transfer to wire rack to cool completely. Makes about 1 1/2 dozen.

NOTE: I should confess I didnít follow this exactly... I used semi-sweet chips instead of the chocolate squares because I had them on hand. So I used a little over 3/4 of a pkg. of mini chips to melt, and about the same of the extra large chips as chunks. Also, I found (and this might be because of my change) that I needed to bake these closer to 15-18 minutes. Also, my first batch was very goo-y dough; the second had set up better since the chocolate wasnít so melted. You might want to wait a minute or two so it would be less sticky to deal with getting on the cookie sheets.

P.S. Came out as yummy looking as the photo!
