Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies

These are my all time favorite chocolate cookies.  Quite delicious with a nice cup of tea.  These freeze well.

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies
1/2 C butter
4 (1 oz ) squares unsweetened chocolate, chopped
3 C semisweet chocolate chips, divided
1 1/2 C flour
1/2 t baking powder
1/2 t salt
4 large eggs
1 1/2 C sugar
2 t vanilla extract
1-2 C chopped pecans (optional)
1 T instant coffee granules (optional)

Combine butter, unsweetened chocolate & 1 1/2 chocolate chips  in a large, heavy saucepan.  Cook over low heat, stirring  constantly until  butter & chocolate melt.  Cool.

Combine flour, baking powder & salt in a small bowl; set aside.

 Beat eggs, sugar, vanilla in a mixing bowl, at medium speed.

Add cooled, melted butter & chocolate mixture & mix well.

Gradually add flour mixture to egg mixture beating well. 

Stir in remaining 1 1/2 cup chocolate chips  optional pecans & instant coffee granules.

Drop dough by 1-2 tablespoons approximately 1-2" apart onto parchment paper-lined cookie sheets..  Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes or until set.  Cool slightly on cookie sheets: remove to wire racks to cool completely.
