Melt butter in a saucepan. Add chips and stir until melted. Add melted mixture to cocoa in a bowl and combine. Set aside. In a separate bowl, whip eggs with brown sugar. Mix flour with baking powder and salt. Add this dry mixture to egg/ brown sugar mixture. Mix in the butter/chips/cocoa combination. Stir in additional chocolate chips and nuts.
