In a medium heavy saucepan, heat half of the chocolate chips, unsweetened chocolate
and butter until melted and smooth stirring occasionally with a wire whisk (you
can use a double boiler for this step, which does not over heat the chocolate).
Remove from heat and cool slightly.
Add eggs, sugar, flour, vanilla extract and
baking powder. Beat until thoroughly combined.
Stir in remaining chocolate pieces and nuts.
Drop by rounded teaspoonsful 2 inches
apart onto a greased cookie sheet.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until edges are firm
and tops are dull and cracked.
Cool on a wire rack.
