I made these cookies last night for the first time, and they were oh-so-delicious!! They have an extreme chocolate flavor, but they are not overly sweet. If you're a chocolate lover like me...you will LOVE them! I took them to work today, and everyone else loved them too. I found this recipe on a blog called, "The Cutting Edge of Ordinary". Try them...you'll be glad you did!

Ingredients

3
squares (1 oz. each) unsweetened chocolate, chopped
2 c
semi-sweet chocolate chips, divided
1 stick
butter, cubed
1 Tbsp
instant coffee or espresso powder
1 c
plus 2 tablespoons, sugar
3
eggs
3/4 c
all purpose flour
1/2 tsp
baking powder
1/4 tsp

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a small saucepan, melt the unsweetened chocolate, 1 cup of the semi-sweet chocolate chips, the butter, and the instant coffee or espresso powder. Stir until smooth. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.
2
In a mixing bowl, beat the sugar and eggs together for 3 minutes, until thick & lemon colored. Add the chocolate mixture and beat together. Combine the flour, baking powder & salt, and add to mixture. Stir in the remaining cup of chocolate chips.

Drop by heaping teaspoonfuls, about 2 in. apart, on to a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for about 9-12 minutes (mine took about 9 1/2 min.), or until puffed and cracked on top. Let cool about 5 minutes, then remove to wire rack to finish cooling.
