2 ½ Sticks Butter (18 Tablespoons, cut into small pieces)
12 Ounces Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips (buy the best ones you can find)
1 ¼ Cups Flour
3 Tablespoons Cocoa Powder
1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
½ Teaspoon Salt
2 1/3 Cups Sugar
1 ½ Teaspoons Vanilla
In a double boiler, add the butter and chocolate chips, stir occasionally until melted, remove bowl from the heat and set aside to cool.
In a small bowl sift together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt, set aside. Place the eggs into your mixer bowl and beat until blended, about 1 minute. Add the sugar and continue to beat on medium speed until light yellow and well combined. Next add the vanilla and blend until just combined. Remove the bowl from you mixer and fold in the chocolate mixture until blended. Next add the dry ingredients to the batter in three additions, gently folding each addition with a spatula.
