Chocolate Mudslide Cookies

It’s been cold and a little dreary lately, so I decided to remedy that with chocolate.. and dark chocolate at that.  These mudslide cookies are made with bittersweet chocolate chips (the 60 percent cacao kind).  I opted for milk chocolate chips as an add-in.  Feel free to use semisweet, white, peanut butter, mint etc.  You could also add coconut or nuts if you want too.  

Ingredients – 1 1/3 cups bittersweet chips, 3/4 cup sugar,  3 tbs butter, 3 eggs, 1 tsp vanilla, 1/4 cup flour, 2 tbs baking cocoa,  1/4 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp baking powder, 1 cup milk chocolate chips.

Directions -preheat oven to 350.  In microwave safe bowl, melt bittersweet chips, butter and sugar for about 1 minute (or until you can stir the mixture smooth).  Add eggs and vanilla.  Fold in dry ingredients.   Add milk chocolate chips.  Place mounds of 3 tbs of dough on cookie sheet lined with nonstick baking liners.  Bake 10 to 12 minutes.  Sprinkle warm cookies with powdered sugar, if desired.
