Served at the 2014 Chocolate Wine Trail


4 (1 ounce) squares unsweetened chocolate, chopped
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
6 Tablespoons butter
3 eggs
1 cup white sugar
1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract
½ cup all-purpose flour
2 Tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
¼ teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

In the microwave, melt unsweetened chocolate, 1 cup of the chocolate chips, and the butter stirring occasionally until smooth.  Remove from heat and set aside to cool.

In a large bowl, whip eggs and sugar until thick and pale, about 2 minutes.  Stir in the vanilla and the chocolate mixture until well mixed.  Combine the flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt; gradually stir into the chocolate mixture.  Fold in remaining 1 cup chocolate chips.  Cover dough and chill for at least an hour or overnight.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Roll chilled dough into 1 inch balls.  Place on ungreased cookie sheets 2 inches apart.  Bake for 9 to 11 minutes in the preheated oven.  Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing.

Pair with a chilled bottle of Raspberry  Weisser Flieder
