Preheat oven to 350°F. Coarsely chop 8 of the chocolate squares; set aside.
Microwave remaining 8 chocolate squares in large microwaveable bowl on HIGH 2 minutes, stirring after 1 minute. Stir until chocolate is completely melted. Add sugar, butter, eggs and vanilla; stir until well blended. Add flour and baking powder; mix well. Stir in chopped chocolate and walnuts.
Note: If omitting nuts, increase flour to 3/4 cup to prevent excessive spreading of cookies as they bake.
Drop rounded tablespoonfuls of dough, 2 inches apart, onto baking sheets. Bake 12 to 13 minutes or until cookies are puffed and shiny. Cool 1 minute; remove from baking sheets to wire racks. Cool completely.
Makes: 2 1/2 dozen (depending how big you make them)
