Extreme Brownie Cookies

My first Christmas party tomorrow evening. I am taking along these cookies. I found this recipe on Cook Eat Share of which I am a member. I'm not a big fan of chocolate, but if you are these would definitely do the trick. Here is my version.

EXTREME BROWNIE COOKIES

1 bag semi-sweet chocolate chips (2 cups)
1 stick butter
3 eggs
1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup flour
1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup toasted chopped pecans

Melt chocolate chips and stick of butter. Set aside to cool. Using a mixer beat the eggs and vanilla until frothy. Slowly add the sugar and beat until mixture ribbons off beaters (about 3-4 minutes). Add the melted chocolate and butter mixture. Mix flour, salt and baking powder. Add to batter and mix well. Fold in chocolate chips and nuts. At this point the mixture is like thick cake batter. Chill until set. Scoop mixture into walnut-sized balls (I used a cookie scoop) and place onto parchment paper. Bake at 350 degrees for 12-13 minutes. Let the cookies cool a bit before taking them from the cookie sheet as they tend to crack. Makes 4 dozen.
