Starting July 1st, all medical residents have new work hour rules. A big side of me is concerned that this could lead to more mistakes because of unfamiliarity with the patients and a decrease is experience. Interns (first years) can no longer take overnight call and are limited to 16 hours of work at a time. While I do think that this will make exhaustion less likely, I also think that it takes away many learning opportunities.
1/2 cup butter
4 ounces unsweetened chocolate (I used the equivalent of cocoa powder - it's on the can)
3 cups semisweet chocolate morsels, divided
1 1/2 cups AP flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups chopped pecans, toasted
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Melt butter, unsweetened chocolate (or cocoa) and 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips in a double boiler (or just in a pot!) then cool.
