4 squares (1 ounce each) unsweetened chocolate
2 cups (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips, divided
1/3 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 cup gluten free all purpose flour
2 Tbsp. baking cocoa
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
In a microwave or double broiler, melt unsweetened chocolate, 1 cup of chocolate chips and butter; cool for 10 minutes. In a mixing bowl, beat sugar and eggs for 2 minutes. Beat in vanilla and the chocolate mixture. Combine flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt; beat into chocolate mixture. Stir in remaining chocolate chips. Cover and chill for at least 3 hours. Remove about 1 cup of dough. With lightly floured hands (make sure to use gluten free flour), roll into 1-in. balls. Place on parchment paper lined cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees F. for 10-12 minutes or until lightly puffed and set. The tops should not look wet, but cookie will still be a bit soft. Cool on pan 3-4 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely. Repeat with remaining dough. Dust with confectioners' sugar.
