Melt the chocolate in a double boiler over hot water or in a microwave according to manufacturer’s directions. Let cool. Preheat oven to 350°F.

Place the butter and sugars in a medium bowl. Mix on Speed 1 for 30 seconds, then mix on Speed 3 until light and fluffy, 2 minutes. Add the egg and vanilla, mixing on Speed 2 until combined, 20 seconds. Add melted, cooled chocolate, mix 20 seconds on Speed 1. Add flour mixture, mix on Speed 1 until combined, 30 seconds. Add chocolate morsels and walnuts, mix on Speed 1 to blend, 10 seconds.
Scoop out dough in 11⁄2 tablespoon amounts onto prepared baking sheets. (For ease, speed and uniformity, you may use a #40 ice cream scoop.) Bake in the preheated oven for 10–12 minutes. Let cool on pans 2 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Just before serving, dust lightly with powdered sugar if desired.
