FUDGE ECSTACIES

1 12-oz pkg semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 squares (2 oz) unsweetened chocolate
2 tsp. butter
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp. baking powder
dash salt
2 eggs
2/3 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup nuts (as desired)

In heavy, medium saucepan heat 1 cup of the semi-sweet chocolate pieces, the unsweetened chocolate and the butter until melted, stirring constantly (or heat in microwave until melted). Transfer to a large mixing bowl to cool slightly. Stir together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Add eggs, sugar and vanilla to the chocolate mixture and mix well. Add flour mixture and stir until well mixed. Stir in the remaining chocolate pieces and nuts. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto a lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 8-10 minutes or until the edges are firm and the surface dull and cracked. Cool onthe cookie sheet for 1 minute. Remove and cool thoroughly. Makes about 3 dozen.
