About this recipe: A very dark, rich chocolate cookies for the true chocoholic, this recipe uses relatively little flour and a lot of chocolate. These will keep well in the freezer, but you may have a hard time waiting for them to thaw before you eat them!

  1. Melt the dark chocolate, the dark chocolate chips and the butter in a microwave or in a metal bowl over a pan of simmering water, stirring occasionally until smooth. Set aside to cool.
  2. In a large bowl, whip eggs and sugar until thick and pale, about 2 minutes. Stir in the vanilla and the chocolate mixture until well mixed.
  3. Sift the flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt together into a bowl. Gradually stir into the chocolate mixture.
  4. Fold in remaining 1 cup chocolate chips, cover dough and chill for at least 1 hour or overnight.
  5. Preheat oven to 175 degrees C. Roll chilled dough into 2.5cm balls. Place on ungreased baking tray so they are 5cm apart and bake for 9 to 11 minutes.
  6. Allow cookies to cool on tray for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
