4 (1-ounce) squares unsweetened baking chocolate
2 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups real semi-sweet chocolate chips


1/2 cup real semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 teaspoons shortening


Melt butter and unsweetened baking chocolate in 2-quart saucepan over low heat, stirring occasionally, 6-10 minutes or until smooth. Cool 20 minutes.

Combine melted chocolate mixture, sugar, 1 cup flour, cocoa, eggs, baking powder and salt in bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until well mixed. Stir in remaining flour and 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips. Cover; refrigerate at least 2 hours.

Heat oven to 350°F.

Shape level tablespoonfuls of dough into balls. Place 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 7-9 minutes or until edges are set and cookies begin to crack on top. Cool 2 minutes on cookie sheets; remove to cooling rack. Cool completely.

Microwave 1/2 cup chocolate chips and shortening in bowl 1 minute. Stir until chips are melted. Drizzle mixture over cooled cookies. Let stand at least 30 minutes or until chocolate is set.

Recipe Tip

- For a fresh-baked flavor after storage, place cookie on paper towel; microwave 5 seconds.

- Cookies can be sprinkled with sifted powdered sugar instead of chocolate drizzle.

Recipe Comments & Reviews

Tasty and easy! But make sure you actually refrigerate the dough for two hours, or you'll have a mess.
Quick question, the cookie is fabulous but mine fell flat after they cooled. Any ideas on what I may have done to do this? I actually followed the recipe to the letter so I am not sure what I may have done. They still taste great but they are really flat. Any ideas are appreciated.

Here is a suggestion, Holly. This is a very fudgy dense cookie. I would mix in about 1 to 2 T. all-purpose flour to the cookie dough. Then I would bake a test cookie first to see if the texture is not so flat. The other possibility as to why the cookies are flat and fell in the middle. is that you would need to bake the cookie a little longer. They might also be underbaked.

A true chocoholic cookie, perfect! These cookies are so moist. My mom could not stop giving me such rave reviews, she said it is her FAVORITE cookie, which is huge!
THE best chocolate cookies. They are a huge success at family events, and friends love them. Using rubber gloves makes rolling the dough easier, and somewhat less messy. I don't make the drizzle, as they're ideal plain.
Rolling this cookie dough is sooo messy. But sooo worth the
trouble! They are soft, chewy and intensely chocolate. The
glaze makes them look pretty on a cookie tray, too.
My 94 year old mother said they were the best cookies she had ever tasted and at her age I am sure she has tasted quiet a few although not as much as me because she still watches her figure. My adult son was eating them as fast as I could bake them. It took 2 bakings before I got ahead of him. As for me, I got sick by eating too much batter and did not seem to want many cookies. I made them normal size and baked them 15-17 minutes. I did not put the drizzle on them because they were very rich and also half gone before it was time to make the drizzle. Forming the batter was messy, but well worth it.don't wear anything good while forming batter The rest was easy. This has becme my favorite chocolate cookie!
These are so chewy and chocolatey! They disappeared immediately. They are easy to make, too!! I will use this recipe again and again.
soooooo gooooooood
