Divinely Chocolate Cookies

These are super chocolaty cookies. If you are a chocoholic these are for you. Crisp and chewy at the same time these are by far the best cookies I have ever made. And it's my own recipe! The melted butter is unconventional, I know; but this, I find, helps make the cookies crisp on the outside and chewy-gooey on the inside. Enjoy!
