Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1 1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
11 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 sticks unsalted butter, room temperature
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup turbinado
2 eggs
1 1/4 tsp vanilla
3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup walnuts, chopped

Preheat the oven to 350*F, making sure two racks are in the upper third of the oven. Prep two cookie sheets with butter or parchment paper.

In a large bowl, whisk together the ingredients of flour through salt.

In a double boiler, melt the 11 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips. While the chocolate is slowly melting, use a mixer to cream the butter and both sugars for 3 min. Next add the melted chocolate and the eggs, one at a time. Then add the vanilla. In small batches, add the flour mixture until just incorporated.

Fold in the walnuts and whole chocolate chips carefully as the dough will be stiff.

Form the dough into large balls and place six onto each cookie sheet. Bake for 15 min. Allow the cookies to rest for a few minutes before transferring to a cooling rack with a spatula. Allow the cookies to cool, otherwise they will be very crumbly.

~Yields 20 cookies.
