3/4 c. butter, softened
1/4 c. creamy peanut butter

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In a microwave-safe bowl combine 1 c. chocolate chips and 2 Tbsp milk.  Microwave at 30 second intervals until melted.  Set aside.

In a large bowl, beat butter and peanut butter until combined.  Add sugar, baking soda, baking powder and salt.  Beat to combine. Add eggs, 1/2 c. milk, vanilla, and melted chocolate.  Mix well.  Beat in cocoa powder and flour until mixed well.  Stir in remaining chocolate chips.  Drop by rounded teaspoons 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets.
