Whisk together flour, baking soda and salt; stir into chocolate mixture. Stir in remaining chopped chocolate. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Drop by 2 tbsp or by 1 oz ice-cream scoop onto parchment paper–lined baking sheets. (Make-ahead: Freeze until firm. Transfer to airtight container and freeze for up to 2 weeks. Bake frozen, adding 2 minutes to baking.)
