Chocolate Obsession

It is a little frightening. I go through my recipes on both my blogs and what do I see dozens of recipes for chocolate chip cookies and brownies plus all kinds of other chocolate goodies and I keep baking more. Of course, my excuse is my class, who I do the bulk of my baking for. They adore chocolate, like I don’t.

I thought I would bake one of the best recipes with you and of course, it has chocolate.

Chewy Chocolate Cookies

12 ounces bittersweet chocolate, cut into squares
1 stick unsalted margarine
3 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup chopped walnuts

In a microwave, melt the bittersweet chocolate and margarine. Allow it to cool.

Using an electric mixer, beat the eggs and vanilla in a mixing bowl until frothy.

Slowly add the sugar and beat until the mixture ribbons off the beaters. Add the melted chocolate mixture. Stir to combine.

Sift the dry ingredients together.

Add to the chocolate mixture and stir to combine.

Fold in the chips and nuts.

Cover the mixing bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate until the dough is well chilled . I did not have the time to do this.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line several baking sheets with baking parchment. (I used four sheets and doubled on one of them. I got loads of cookies, figuring 16 on a sheet.

Using a small cookie scoop (one teaspoon) make balls to place on cookie sheets, leaving about one and a half inches between cookies.

Bake about 12 minutes. Start checking at 11. Depending on the shelf, they were on, some were done.
The tops of the cookies should look dry and cracked. None of mine were.
Allow to cool for a minute on the baking sheet, then remove to cake racks for further cooling.
Finally, eat and be aware, you will want to keep eating more and more. These cookies don’t look like much, in my opinion but they are the chewiest so if you like chewy, here it is.
