Chocolate White Chocolate Chunk Cookies

I made these during the snow storm last week. They turned out very well, which in my book means they didn't get too hard nor did they flatten out. These are a good anytime treat but I warn you, they are had to stop eating. Give them away as gifts!

This recipe is from the Baker's Chocolate Classic Recipes.

2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
4 squares (4 ounces) Bakers Chocolate, melted, cooled slightly
1 package (12 ounces) white chocolate chunks or chips
1 cup chopped nuts (optional but I used)

Heat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix flour, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl; set aside.

Beat butter and sugar in large bowl with electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla; beat well. Stir in melted chocolate. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in chocolate chunks and nuts. Drop by heaping tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.

Bake 11-12 minutes or until cookies feel set to the touch. Remove cookies from sheet onto wire cooling racks.

I like to have large chunks of nuts in my cookies!
