What you'll need:
8 ounces semi-sweet chocolate, roughly chopped (I used Baker's)
4 T unsalted butter
2/3 cup all purpose flour
1/2 t baking powder
1/2 t salt
2 large eggs
3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
1 t vanilla extract
1 package (12 oz) semi-sweet chocolate chunks
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Heat chopped chocolate and butter in a microwave-safe bowl in 20-second increments, stirring in between, until almost melted; do not overheat. In another bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt.
In a mixing bowl, beat eggs, brown sugar, and vanilla on high speed until light and fluffy. Reduce speed to low; beat in melted chocolate. Mix in flour mixture until just combined. Stir in chocolate chunks.
Chill dough for 1-2 hours.
Roll dough into walnut sized balls, and place on cookie sheet 2 inches apart. Bake until cookies are shiny and crackly yet soft in centers, about 10 minutes. Cool on sheets 10 minutes; with a thin metal spatula, transfer to racks to cool completely.
