Double Chocolate Treasures

While we were in Greenville, SC last week, I went to a cookie exchange with my sister, Nora. We were each told to make 5 dozen of a favorite cookie, and then we brought home 5 dozen of a wide variety of cookies. I brought these Double Chocolate Treasures, and I am sharing the recipe today.
Double Chocolate Treasures

2 cups chocolate chips
1 stick margarine
3/4 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups oats
1 2/2 cups flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 cup powdered sugar

Melt 1 cup chocolate chips. Cool slightly. Mix margarine and sugar until light and fluffy. Blend in eggs, vanilla, and melted chocolate. In a separate bowl, combine dry ingredients, except powdered sugar. Add to creamed mixture. Stir in remaining chocolate chips. Roll in 1 inch balls; roll in powdered sugar, coating heavily. Place on cookie sheets. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes. Cool slightly before removing from trays. Yield: 5 dozen.
