8ozGerman chocolate, chopped (about 50% dark chocolate)
1 and ⅓cupgranulated sugar
½cupplus 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 and ¼cupmilk chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 350F degrees and line 2 or 3 baking sheets with parchment paper.
Using a double boiler, melt the chopped chocolate and butter over gently simmering water. Stir occasionally.
Meanwhile in a large bowl whisk together the eggs, sugar and vanilla. In a separate medium-sized bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt.
Once the chocolate and butter are melted and shiny, remove the bowl the heat and allow to cool slightly. Add a little of the melted chocolate mixture to the eggs and whisk in to warm the mixture. Be careful not to scramble the eggs. Then whisk in the rest of the melted chocolate.
Gently stir in the flour mixture, followed by the chocolate chips.
Scoop the dough into cookies about 1.5 tablespoons in size, drop onto the prepared cookie sheets and bake for about 10 minutes. I recommend checking the cookies at 8 minutes because you want to be sure not to over bake them. Once the tops are set, remove them from the oven and allow to cool fully on the cookie sheets.
