Baker's One Bowl Chocolate Bliss Cookies

2 pkg (8 squares each) Baker's semi-sweet Baking Chocolate, divided
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/4 cup butter, slightly softened
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup flour
1/4 tsp baking powder
2 cups chopped walnuts

Preheat oven 350. Coarsely chop 8 of the chocolate squares. Set aside. Microwave remaining 8 chocolate squares in large microwaveable bowl on High 2 minutes. Stir after 1 min. Stir until chocolate is completely melted. Add sugar, butter, egg, vanilla. Stir until well blended. Add lfour and baking powser. Mix well. Stir in chopped chocolate and walnuts. (If ommitting nuts, increase flour to 3/4 cup) Bake 12-13 minutes. Ungreased sheet.

* I didn't have semi-sweet squares, so I made half a recipe and used chocolate chips. For making half a recipe, melt about a little over 1 and a half cups of chips and set stir in the other 1 and a half later on.
* Next time I make it, and if I do a full recipe, I would use the squares for melting and the chips for the un-melted ones rather than try to chop up the squares.
* They look like little rock balls when you roll them, but it's fine.
* Don't overbake them. They look like they're not done, but they set. Mine are kinda hard cuz I overbaked them.
* They're really good!!!

Well, I have a new book!!! I was looking for a book for my devotions and I decided to break away from the Welwyn and try the "Let's Study" ones. I picked the Ephesians one cuz it's by Sinclair Ferguson and I like his books usually. Anyway, as I was pondering whether to buy it (why can't books be cheaper?!) Andy walked in (this was at the book room at church) and bought it for me. Awwwwww... so now I have a new book! Yayness! Thanks, Andy!!!

I'm going home, God willing, in 123 days. Looks like I'll be going ahead of Andy. I would wait for him, but he's not sure if he's coming or what. Plus, I need to get back and get a job. I'm leaving May 8 at 12:30pm and I arrive around 10:34 in Manila!!! I come back June 6... which is one day over 4 weeks. It will go by too quickly, but oh well. Gotta work!

Uh... 2 months until Spring Break! (Masyadong excited ba?)

The End
