Preheat oven to 350 °F (180 °C). In a large bowl, cream butter. Beat in brown sugar and sugar until very smooth. Beat in egg. Microwave chocolate on medium for 1 minute. Stir until smooth. Stir chocolate and vanilla into creamed mixture. Stir in flour, baking soda and salt.

Roll teaspoonfuls (5 mL) of dough into small balls. Place on lightly buttered baking sheet and set in freezer for 5 minutes or in refrigerator for 15 minutes. Bake cookies for 10 minutes. Cool completely on rack.


Microwave semi-sweet chocolate on medium for about 2 minutes. Stir until smooth. Set bowl of melted chocolate over pan of steaming water. Dip cooled cookies into melted chocolate. Lift out and place on a rack set over a baking sheet. Once chocolate is firm, microwave white chocolate on medium for about 45 seconds. Stir until melted and smooth. Decorate cookies by drizzling with white chocolate.


For extra chocolately flavour and optimal storage, immerse cookies completely in melted chocolate.
