From Chocolatier magazine...a dessert lover's paradise! I don't even know where to start with these...the melted butter brings out a wonderful flavor, then your mouth orbits into a frenzy of chocolate in several forms-chunks, regular sized chips, and mini chips-and epic proportions!!! I made these only once so far, because the temptation to hog them all is too overwhelming....depending on the chocolate you use, these can range from a moderately to considerably expensive cookie to bake...and worth every penny! Hope you enjoy!
