3/4 c
packed brown sugar
1 tsp
baking soda
2
eggs
1 tsp
vanilla extract
3 oz
unsweetened chocolate, melted and cooled
2 c
all purpose flour
1 pkg
(8 oz.) semisweet chocolate, cut into 1/2-inch pieces, or 1-1/3 cups large semisweet chocolate pieces

Step-By-Step

1In a large mixing bowl, beat butter with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Beat in granulated sugar, brown sugar, and baking soda until combined. Beat in eggs and vanilla until combined. Stir in melted chocolate.
2Beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer. With a wooden spoon, stir in any remaining flour. Stir in semisweet chocolate and white chocolate pieces and, if desired, nuts.
3With a 1/4-cup dry measure or scoop, drop mounds of dough about 4 inches apart on greased cookie sheets.
4Bake in a preheated 375-degree oven for 12 to 14 minutes or until edges are firm. Cool on cookie sheets for 1 minute. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool completely.
