Fudgy Brownie Cookies

I know that I usually post healthy recipes, but there is nothing healthy about these cookies!  They are absolutely delicious and every once in a while I get a craving and just have to have some.  You can't eat them without a fresh glass of milk!  Just think brownie in a cookie.

Fudgy Brownie Cookies

1 1/4 cups dark chocolate chips (8oz)
4 TBS butter, cut up
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
2 eggs
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 (12 oz) pkg milk chocolate chips
1/2 cup coarsely chopped pecans

Heat the oven to 350°F.  Line cookie sheets w/parchment paper or butter the cookie sheet.  Combine the dark chocolate chips and butter in a small microwave-safe bowl and microwave on high in 20 second increments, stirring every 20 seconds until the chips are almost melted. (be careful not to burn it!)  Stir until smooth.  Set aside to slightly cool.
Whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt in another small bowl.  (For a different element add a tsp of cinnamon)
Beat the eggs, brown sugar and vanilla in a large bowl on medium speed to low and beat in the melted chocolate.
Beat in the flour mixture just until blended.  Stir in the chips.
Drop by 1 1/2 tbs (I used my cookie scoop)onto baking sheets.  Bake, one sheet at a time, for 9 minutes or until the tops are shiny and cracked and the centers are soft.  Place the cookie sheet with cookies on a cookie rack and let sit for 3 minutes to allow the cookies to firm slightly.  Remove the cookies to the cooling rack and cool completely.
These cookies are even better the next day!

I got the original recipe here:  http://janicecole.net/recipes/something-sweet/chewy-chocolate-brownie-cookies/  I changed the chips and added pecans.

Enjoy your brownie cookies, I know I did!
