2 2/3 cup (16 ounces) semisweet chocolate chopped

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and place the rack in the middle. Line your baking sheets with parchment paper or grease them lightly with cooking spray.

In a small sauce pan combine the chocolate and butter then melt it on medium low heat stirring it occasionally. While that’s melting combine the eggs, sugar and vanilla in a large bowl and set it aside. As soon as the chocolate mixture is smooth add it to the egg mixture and mix it well. In a small bowl whisk together the flour and baking powder then add it slowly to the large bowl folding it until it’s incorporated. Mix in the chocolate chips.

Scoop about a tablespoon of batter onto the baking sheet for each cookie and bake them for 10 – 12 minutes. They should be firm on the outside yet soft on the inside like actual brownies. Let them cool off a minute or two before transferring them to a cooling rack other wise they’re stick to the parchment paper.

Aaaaand enjoy!

      Hi Cindy. I’m fairly certain you can freeze all sorts of cookies including these. As long as they’re in an air tight container or bag and you don’t store them for any longer than six months.
