The oven stayed off last weekend. Sometimes, even I need a break... But, here we go again. With oh-so-yummie cookies! When I saw this recipe over at Technicolor Kitchen, I was intrigued. You all know that I am a huge fan of brownies and since I've been in quite a cookie-mood lately, this recipe instantly made its way up very high onto my to-bake-list. These really are a chocolate-dream come true... Lighten-up-my-mood-cookies :-)

(slightly adapted from the lovely and delicious Technicolor Kitchen)

233g dark chocolate, chopped
28g unsalted butter, room temperature
2 eggs
134g sugar
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
35g all purpose flour
¼ teaspoon baking powder
175g dark chocolate chunks or chips
a handful of chopped pecans or walnuts

Preheat the oven to 180ºC and line two large baking sheets with pachment paper.

Melt the 233g chocolate with the butter in a small saucepan over low heat and stir constantly until
smooth. Set aside to cool for 5 minutes. Mix eggs, vanilla and sugar in a medium bowl. Combine
thoroughly. Set aside. Sift flour and baking powder together in a small bowl. Add melted chocolate mixture to the egg mixture and slowly add your dry ingredients. When stirred, add the cup of chocolate chunks and the chopped nuts and stir.

Scoop 1 ½ tablespoons of dough onto prepared sheets. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until they are
firm on the outside. Leave to cool completely on sheets.

Makes about 18. (I made rather large cookies and ended up with 12.)
