In a mixing bowl, beat eggs, sugar and vanilla for about three minutes. Add the cooled chocolate mixture and blend well. Add the dry ingredients on a low speed until well incorporated. Stir in the chocolate chips and the nuts.
Drop heaping tablespoonfuls of the batter onto baking sheets. Bake for 12 minutes or until the edges of the cookies are set. Do not over bake! Cool for 15 minutes on a wire rack.
