Chocolate Truffle Cookies
Here is one of my husband's favorite cookies, but a warning - they are very rich and for the true chocoholic!
4 squares (1 oz each) unsweetened chocolate
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips, divided
1/3 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 - 1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup flour
2 Tbsp baking cocoa
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
Melt unsweetened chocolate, 1 cup chocolate chips, and butter in microwave or double boiler. Cool 10 minutes. In bowl, beat sugar and eggs for 2 minutes; add vanilla and chocolate mixture. Combine flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt and then beat into chocolate mixture. Stir in remaining chocolate chips. Cover and chill at least 3 hours. Remove 1 cup dough and, with floured hands, roll into 1 inch balls. Bake on ungreased baking sheets at 350 deg F for 10-12 minutes. Cool for 3-4 minutes before removing from pan to wire rack to cool completely. Repeat with remaining dough. Freeze in tightly sealed frezzer bags. Dust with cinfectioners sugar, if desired. Makes 4 dozen.
