Make It

Step 1

Microwave 1 cup chunks in medium, uncovered, microwave-safe bowl on HIGH (100%) power for 1 minute; STIR. Chunks may retain some of their original shape. If necessary, microwave at additional 10- to 15-second intervals, stirring just until chunks are melted.

Step 2

Combine flour, cinnamon, baking powder, salt and cayenne pepper in small bowl. Beat butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar in large mixer bowl until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla extract; beat well. Add melted chocolate; stir until blended. Gradually stir in flour mixture. Refrigerate for 2 hours.

Step 3

Preheat oven to 350º F. Line baking sheets with foil.

Step 4

Shape dough into 1 1/2-inch balls. Place 3 inches apart on baking sheets.

Step 5

Bake for 12 minutes or until cookies are puffed and centers are set but still soft. Immediately place remaining 3/4 cup chunks, about 5 to 6 chunks per cookie, onto tops of cookies. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks. Allow chunks to soften and spread melted chocolate evenly over tops of cookies.
