- 3/4 cup LAND O LAKES® Butter
- 4 (1-oz.) squares unsweetened baking chocolate
- 2 cups sugar
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
- 4 eggs

Melt Land O' Lakes® Butter and unsweetened baking chocolate in 2-quart saucepan over low heat, stirring occasionally, until smooth (6 to 10 minutes). Cool 20 minutes.
Combine melted chocolate mixture, sugar, 1 cup flour, cocoa, eggs, baking powder and salt in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until well mixed. Stir in remaining flour and 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips. Cover; refrigerate at least 2 hours.
Heat oven to 350°F. Shape level tablespoonfuls of dough into balls. Place 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 7 to 9 minutes or until edges are set and cookies begin to crack on top. Let stand 2 minutes; remove from cookie sheets. Cool completely.
Melt 1/2 cup chocolate chips and shortening in small microwave-safe bowl on HIGH for 1 minute. Stir until chips are melted. Drizzle mixture over cooled cookies. Let stand until chocolate is set (at least 30 minutes). Store in airtight container up to 3 days.
