Best Chocolate Cookies Ever!


Yesterday afternoon I was seriously craving something chocolatey but didn't want to make cake. So I looked around on Pinterest and saw a recipe for Chocolate Brownie Cookies. I didn't have the exact ingredients, but I went for it anyway! And they turned out awesome!!! So, I thought I would share them here with you today.
I started with this recipe here from "Pure and Yummy." Since I didn't have any of the bakers unsweetened chocolate, I just substituted the 4 oz of unsweetened chocolate with 1/2 C of dark chocolate chips. Next time I think I will use all dark chocolate and make it even more yummy and irresistible.

Brownie Cookies

½ cup butter
4 (1 ounce) squares unsweetened chocolate, chopped
3 cups (18 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips, divided
1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
4 large eggs
1 ½ cups sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Combine butter, unsweetened chocolate, and 1 ½ cups chocolate chips in a large heavy saucepan. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until butter and chocolate melt; let cool.
Combine flour, baking powder, and salt in a small bowl, set aside.
Beat eggs, sugar and vanilla at medium speed with an electric mixer. Gradually add dry ingredients to egg mixture, beating well. Then add the chocolate mixture and beat well. Stir in remaining 1 ½ cups chocolate chips.
Scoop dough onto baking sheets 1 inch appart. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Cool slightly on baking sheets; remove to wire racks to cool completely.
