Outrageous Chocolate Cookies

This is baking time with the holidays upon us (Jewish).  I think first of the grandchildren and what they would like.  Chocolate usually is the first thought and it does always please.
These cookies are filled with that wonderful ingredients and taste outrageously CHOCOLATE.  That spells Winner.

The parents monitor the amount the kids eat. If you are a parent who are blessed with living parents, please let the kids indulge a bit with the grandma's and grandpops or in our case, the Bubbys and Zaidys. I am good and don't say a word but these are bonding moments and memories for the little ones and they mean the world to us.

Outrageous Chocolate Cookies From Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia (adapted)


8 ounces semisweet chocolate, roughly chopped
4 tablespoons margarine
2/3 cup all-purpose flour, spooned and leveled
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs
3/4 cup (packed) light-brown sugar
1 teaspoon(s) vanilla extract
8 ounces chocolate cut into chunks (small)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Heat chopped chocolate and margarine 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.

Using cookie scoop (teaspoon or tablespoon - baking time varies), drop heaping tablespoons of dough 2 to 3 inches apart onto baking sheets.

 Bake, rotating sheets halfway through, until cookies are shiny and crackly yet soft in centers,9 - 12 minutes. 

Cool on sheets 10 minutes; with a thin metal spatula, transfer to racks to cool completely.

These are yummy.   Eat and enjoy.
