2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup butter
1 cup granulated sugar
3 squares unsweetened chocolate, melted
1/2 cup milk
1 cup chopped walnuts
Melt chocolate over double boiler; cool a bit. Sift the flour, baking soda, and salt. Cream butter and sugar in mixing bowl. Blend in eggs and melted chocolate to butter and sugar mixture. Then add flour mixture and milk, alternating them until both are incorporated. Fold in walnuts (I toast mine ahead of time since it gives a better flavor.)
Drop by spoonfuls onto greased baking sheet. Bake @350 degrees for 10-12 minutes. Cool completely. Frost with chocolate frosting and sprinkle with nonpareils.
