Chocolate Bliss Cookies
4 4-oz pkg semi-sweet chocolate, divided
1/4 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup flour
1/4 tsp baking powder
2 cups chopped walnuts
Heat oven to 350°.
Chop 8-oz chocolate. Set aside. Microwave remaining chocolate in large microwaveable bowl on high 2 min, stirring after 1 min. Stir until chocolate is completely melted. Add butter. Stir until melted. Stir in sugar, eggs and vanilla. Add flour and baking powder. Mix well. Stir in chopped chocolate and nuts. (Note: If omitting nuts, increase flour to 3/4 cup to prevent excessive spreading of cookie dough as cookies bake.)
