Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  2. Have ingredients at room temperature. Line a large cookie sheet with parchment paper; set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine and whisk together the flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add in the finely chopped nuts and chocolate chips; mix together to combine.
  4. In a large mixing bowl, add the eggs, softened butter, and vanilla extract. Beat mixture until smooth and creamy, about 2 minutes.
  5. Stir the flour mixture into the cream mixture; mixing until combined. Divide dough in half.
  6. Lay the dough on a slightly floured surface. With floured hands, shape dough into a log that will fit on your cookie sheet....10x2 or 13x2.5. Measurements doesn't have to be exact. Transfer the log onto the prepared baking sheet and shape it up a bit more. Repeat with other half of dough. Set logs 2-3 inches apart on the baking sheet.
