Chewy Chocolate Cookies

Chewy Chocolate Cookies: irresistible chocolate goodies...
These chewy chocolate cookies are the first cookies or biscuits I drizzle with melted chocolate ever. I always backed out of this plan before thinking I would make a mess of the cookies, my kitchen and myself. But somehow I stood my ground this time and went for it. And they surprisingly turned out well!
