Fudgy Brownie Cookies

I love fudgy brownies.  I love cookies.  I love fudgy brownie cookies!  I was lucky enough to find this excellent fudgy brownie cookie recipe that can satisfy a fudgy brownie craving in a pinch.  These cookies are rich, sweet, and packed with gooey chocolate.  They taste amazing warm with a little bit of vanilla ice cream.  I like to take a cookie, zap it in the microwave for about 10 seconds, and then top it with a big spoonful of Blue Bell Homemade Vanilla ice cream.  Perfection!
Adapted very slightly from Taste of Home

2 2/3 cups (16 ounces) 60% cacao bittersweet chocolate baking chips 
1/2 cup unsalted butter, cubed 
4 eggs 
1 1/2 cups sugar 
1 tablespoon vanilla extract  
2 teaspoons instant espresso powder 
2/3 cup unbleached all-purpose flour 
1/2 teaspoon baking powder 
1/4 teaspoon salt 
1 package (11.5 ounces) semisweet chocolate chunks

1. In a large saucepan, melt chocolate chips and butter over low heat, stirring until smooth. Remove from the heat; cool slightly.

2. In a small bowl, whisk the eggs, sugar, vanilla, and espresso powder until blended. Whisk into chocolate mixture.

3. In another bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, and salt; add to chocolate mixture, mixing well. Fold in chocolate chunks. Chill batter in refrigerator for 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

4. Drop by heaping tablespoonfuls onto parchment paper-lined baking sheets. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until edges are just set. Cool on pans for 1-2 minutes. Remove to wire racks to cool.
