Found on Goosecross Cellars Recipe for Napa Valley Cabernet. Provided by Rich Harris, SF, Ca, a Goosecross Customer. These are so good! I don't think they are as good with the semisweet chocolate as they are with the bittersweet chocolate. We used the Ghirardelli 60% cacao bittersweet chocolate baking bars, we are baking a lot of cookies, brownies, and bars, now so that we can test many recipes for our Thanksgiving or Christmas cookie trays. Temperatures will vary we are using a commercial-size ovens.
