- 1/2 C butter
- 2 C semi-sweet chocolate chips, divided
- 3/4 C organic granulated sugar
- 1/3 C unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 C flour
- 1/2 t salt
- 1 t baking powder
- 1 t pure mint extract
- 1 large egg
- 1/2 C pecan pieces
Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Place 1 C chocolate chips and butter into a small saucepan. Heat over low heat until everything is melted and smooth.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the sugar, cocoa powder, flour, salt, and baking powder. Add the egg and fold it in with a spatula. Pour in the melted chocolate-butter mixture and the mint extract. Mix until everything is moistened.
Stir in the remaining chocolate chips and nuts. Drop the cookies by the tablespoon onto the parchment-lined baking sheet.
Bake the cookies for 12 to 14 minutes. They will look dull. Remove them from the oven, and cool right on the sheets.
Makes approximately 30 cookies.
