    Hunka Chocolate Cookies

    These were originally published in the April 1989 issue of Midwest Living, and then re-featured in an article of favorite desserts in their October 2000 issue.
    Haven’t made them yet, but if the amount of calories/fat per cookie is any indication, these are pretty fantastic!! 313 cal/20g fat PER COOKIE! !

    2 (12 ounce) packages semisweet chocolate pieces
    4 ounces unsweetened chocolate
    1/4 cup butter (don’t substitute)
    1/2 cup all-purpose flour
    1/2 teaspoon baking powder
    1/4 teaspoon slat
    4 eggs
    1 1/3 cups granulated sugar
    2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    2 to 3 cups broken walnuts, toasted
    Melted white chocolate
    Melted semisweet chocolate

    Lightly grease large cookie sheets; set aside.

    In a heavy saucepan, heat one package of the semisweet chocolate pieces, the unsweetened chocolate and the butter till melted, stirring constantly. Transfer to a large mixing bowl to cool slightly.

    Mix flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.

    Add eggs, sugar and vanilla extract to chocolate mixture; beat with an electric mixer. Add flour mixture and beat on low speed till well mixed. Stir in remaining chocolate pieces and nuts.

    Using 1/4 cup of the dough for each cookie, drop the dough 3 inches apart on lightly greased cookie sheets. Flatten slightly.

    Bake the cookies in a 350 degree F oven for 12 to 15 minutes or till the edges are firm and the surface is dull and cracked. Let stand for 2 minutes on cookie sheets. Remove; cool on wire racks. Drizzle with melted white chocolate and semisweet chocolate.

    Makes 24 cookies.
