Double Choc Chip Cookies
175g dark semi sweet chocolate
75g brown sugar (may be light brown, but I used the dark brown one)
2 tsp vanilla essence
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
200g chopped dark semi sweet chocolate
100g flaked hazelnuts (I didn´t have them so I used the same amount of chopped peacans and it turned out great!)
Melt the 175g chocolate and butter together. Make sure it´s not too warm when added to remaining ingredients.
Beat the eggs well with the sugars and vanilla.
Sieve the flour and cocoa and add the baking powder and salt.
While beating the eggs, pour the chocolate - butter mixture. Then combine the dried ingredients and combine. Now add the nuts and chopped chocolate.
With 2 teaspoons form little dots on a baking sheet, give them space as they run out.
Bake at 180°C for ca 7 to 8 minutes. You will notice it on the great smell filling the kitchen :)
Cool on a rack and find a pretty Christmas Tin to store them in.

These are a real Chocolate treat! I found this recipie in an Icelandic Gourmet Magazine quite a few years ago, then I made them and we loved them. Now many years later I found this recipie again and just made it again recently. They are really easy to make and taste delicious with ice cold milk or a great cup of coffee :)
