Yes, I did just post a chocolate cookie recipe last week, but these are really good too! And you can NEVER have too much chocolate! These were delicious!! If you have a hankering for chocolate, these will do the trick.
3/4 c. butter, cubed
4 squares (1 oz. each) unsweetened chocolate
2 c. sugar
1-1/2 c. all-purpose flour
1/2 c. baking cocoa
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
2 c. (12 oz.) semisweet chocolate chips, divided
2 tsp. shortening
In a small saucepan melt butter and unsweetened chocolate; cool. Transfer to a large mixing bowl; add sugar and eggs. Beat until smooth.
Combine the flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt; gradually add to chocolate mixture. Stir in 1-1/2 cups chocolate chips. Cover and refrigerate for 1-2 hours or until easy to handle.
Drop by tbspfuls 2 in. apart onto greased baking sheets. Bake at 350* for 7-9 minutes or until edges are set and tops are slightly cracked. Cool for 2 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
In a microwave-safe bowl, heat shortening and remaining chocolate chips on high for 1 minute or until chips are melted; stir until smooth. Drizzle over cookies. Let stand for 30 minutes or until chocolate is set. Makes 2-3 dozen cookies.
