Martha's Outrageously Chocolate Cookies

Tonight I decided that I needed to warm up the house by making some cookies. I have been browsing other baking blogs and websites and came across this Martha Stewart recipe. This recipe is so rich and decadent that you have to try them if you have any love for chocolate. When I mixed up the ingredients, I was shocked to see that the batter is more like a brownie batter than a cookie dough. I let the batter settle for 10 minutes prior to scooping them onto the pan which allowed the batter to firm up a little. I then baked for 12 minutes and allowed them to cool for just a couple of minutes before transfering them to waxed paper. While still warm be prepared to indulge in at least 3 or 4 of these with a super cold glass of milk! NOTE: Since I am trying to get into shape for bathing suit season, only 1/2 a package of the chocolate chunks were added to this recipe! Printable recipe can be found by clicking here.
