Chocolate Truffle Cookies

I recently spent the day with my cousin Katherine. We had a wonderful day that consisted of movies, coffee, cooking, and girl stuff .... there's nothing better. I showed her this recipe I found on Valentines and asked her if she was interested in giving it a shot, she happily obliged. We baked these cookies in between taking a mid night dip in the jacuzzi, they were a perfect end to the night. Thanks Katherine.
These cookies are very chocolaty, kinda like a dark chocolate bitter taste, perfect for any level of sweet tooth. I had some leftover cookies that I shared with some friends of mine who are not too fond of sweets, after they had one bite they could not stop eating them.

4 (1 ounce) squares unsweetened chocolate, chopped
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
6 tbsp butter
3 eggs
1 cup white sugar
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

1. In the microwave or in a double boiler pan, melt unsweetened chocolate, 1 cup of the chocolate chips, and the butter stirring occasionally until smooth. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.
2. In a large bowl, whip eggs and sugar until thick and pale, about 2 minutes. Stir in the vanilla and the chocolate mixture until well mixed.
3. Combine the flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt; gradually stir into the chocolate mixture.
4. Fold in remaining 1 cup chocolate chips. Cover dough and chill for at least an hour or overnight.
5. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Roll chilled dough into 1 inch balls. Place on ungreased cookie sheets so they are 2 inches apart.
6. Bake for 9 to 11 minutes in the preheated oven.
7. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely. Serve alongside some vanilla ice cream or enjoy by themselves. Enjoy!
