Death By Chocolate Cookies...

Well I reckon that title sums it all up.
I also like to add a hint of coffee flavor but ya don't have to.
These are the first cookies I bake. Oh but this batch is made strictly for hubs. Ya see this keeps him occupied and off my flour covered back while I bake all the other Christmas cookies. Otherwise, he's grabbin' cookies right off the sheet as they come out of the oven.

Two 16. oz. pkgs-Semi sweet baking chocolate
3/4 C-Firmly packed brown sugar
1/4 C-Softened butter
1 tsp-Vanilla
1/2 C-Flour
1/4 tsp-Baking powder
2 tsp-Instant coffee granules (optional)
2 C-Chopped walnuts (optional)

Coarsely chop 1 pkg of chocolate and set aside. Melt other pkg in saucepan until smooth.

In a large bowl mix your melted chocolate, sugar, butter, eggs (coffee granules) and vanilla. Stir in flour and baking powder. Add your coarsely chopped chocolate and walnuts. Drop rounded Tbsps onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 350° for 11 minutes until puffed and set to the touch. Let cool completely.
