Triple Chocolate Fudge Cookies
8 oz semisweet baking chocolate, chopped
6 Tbsp butter
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp baking powder
4 oz chocolate chips or chunks
1 cup chocolate chips or chunks
In a heatproof bowl, melt 8 ounces of chocolate and butter in the microwave, stirring every 30 seconds. Let cool slightly.
In a medium sized bowl, beat together eggs, sugar, and vanilla for about 5 minutes at medium speed. The mixture will thicken slightly and become frothy.
Stir the melted chocolate into the egg mixture and gently stir in the flour and baking powder. With a spatula, fold in the 4 ounces of chocolate chips or chunks. Place the mixing bowl in the fridge and chill for 30 minutes.
Using a large cookie dough scoop (or about 2 Tbsp of dough), drop cookie dough on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Refrigerate the scooped cookie dough for at least 2 hours before baking.
Heat the oven to 350F. Bake the cookies for 15-16 minutes, or until just set. Immediately place a few of the reserved chocolate chips and chunks on top of the cookies. Let cool 5 minutes before transferring cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.
