Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In double boiler over hot water, melt the bittersweet chocolate chips and butter. In large bowl with electric mixer, beat eggs and sugar until thick; stir in chocolate mixture. In small bowl, stir together flour and baking powder. Stir into chocolate mixture. Gently mix in semi-sweet chocolate chips and walnuts.
  2. On a sheet of plastic wrap, form dough into two logs, each 2 inches in diameter and about 8 inches long. Wrap tightly; refrigerate at least 1 hour or until firm. (Dough can also be frozen; thaw in refrigerator before proceeding with recipe.).
  3. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Unwrap dough. With sharp knife, cut into 3/4 inch slices. Place slices 1 1/2 inches apart on greased or parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake 12-14 minutes or until shiny crust forms on top but interior is still soft.
  4. Cool on baking sheet.

I've been wanting to try these for a while as they looked really good. I was kind of disappointed. These are very rich & fudge-like. They make 24 large cookies. I'd recommend making them smaller. Considering the cost of these cookies, I wouldn't make them again.

I found this recipe in my KitchenAid stand mixer's "Use and Care" book. Quite possibly my new favorite cookie.

I too found this recipe in the Ghirardelli ad...these are the best cookies..if you like chocolate. Very rich. I used hazelnuts coarsely chopped. Very easy to make.
