ANNOUNCING: Change is part of life, and apparently, it's part of blogging, too. As of September 5, 2013, I'm merging The Virtual Goody Plate with Disco Mom Takes on the World and whatever else may henceforth spill from my fingertips (and kitchen), into one great new blog. I hope you'll join me there in exclaiming, "THIS IS AWESOMELAND."

Death by Chocolate Cookies

The name says it all. And in case it doesn't, the picture says the rest. Honestly, do you really need me to go into descriptions with words like decadent and euphoric when you can practically already smell and taste this cookie? When you need an intense but quick-and-easy chocolate fix, look no further.

1 pkg (8 squares) semisweet baking chocolate
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, softened
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup flour*
1/4 tsp baking powder
1 pkg (8 squares) semisweet baking chocolate, coarsely chopped - OR - 1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chunks/chips
2 cups chopped walnuts, optional*
*If omitting nuts, increase flour to 3/4 cup or 1 cup to prevent spreading

1. Preheat oven to 350.

2. Microwave chocolate squares in large bowl on HIGH for 2 minutes. Stir until chocolate is melted and smooth. Stir in sugar, butter, eggs and vanilla with wooden spoon until well blended. Stir in flour and baking powder. Stir in chopped chocolate and nuts. Drop by scant 1/4 cupfuls onto greased cookie sheets.

3. Bake 13 to 14 minutes or until cookies are puffed and feel set. Cool on sheet 1 minute, then remove to wire cooking rack. Makes about 15 to 18 cookies.
