Chocolate Cookies

Here is another recipe my friend made for us! DELICIOUS! And all it needs is a bowl and spoon - not even a mixer needed!
The recipe she has also calls for 1/2 tablespoon of instant coffee crystals but that was not used - might be worth a try one time though.

1 stick unsalted butter
3 oz. semi-sweet chocolate
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 cups flour
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips or 6 oz. dark chocolate, chopped

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Melt butter and chocolate together. Mix in both sugars, then the eggs and vanilla.
Add baking powder and salt, making sure there are no clumps.
Add the cocoa powder and stir until it's mixed in; then stir in the flour and the chips.
Drop by tablespoons onto the cookie sheet and bake on center rack for about 10 minutes - don't overbake!
Sprinkle with powdered sugar if desired.
