|10 ounces semisweet baking chocolate, chopped||1 cup packed light brown sugar|
|6 tablespoons butter or margarine, cut-up||2 eggs|
|3/4 cup all-purpose flour||2 tablespoons instant espresso powder or granules|
|1/2 teaspoon baking powder||1 teaspoon vanilla|
|1/2 teaspoon salt||2 cups semisweet chocolate chips|
In medium microwavable bowl, microwave chocolate and butter uncovered on High 1 minute to 1 minute 30 seconds, stirring every 30 seconds, until melted and smooth. Cool 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, in small bowl, stir together flour, baking powder and salt; set aside. In large bowl, beat brown sugar, eggs, espresso powder and vanilla with electric mixer on medium speed 3 minutes. Add cooled chocolate mixture; beat on low speed until blended. Add flour mixture; beat until soft dough forms. Stir in chocolate chips. Refrigerate dough 30 minutes or until firm enough to handle.
Heat oven to 350°F. Shape dough into 2-inch balls. On ungreased cookie sheets, place balls 2 inches apart. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until tops are cracked and dry (cookies will still be soft). Cool 3 minutes; remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks. Cool completely before storing in airtight container.
