Crispy, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

I've made this recipe a couple times before. I like them because the outside is crispy and the inside is chewy, just like the name says. In this photo I tried to do a 'candy bar' version and used snickers, rolo and some hershey bar in place of the chocolate chips. I think it would have turned out good except for the snickers, I didn't like them at all in it (I think it was the peanuts..). Maybe other candy bars would have been better, but that's what I had in my cupboard leftover from other recipes so I tried to use some of it up. But as chocolate chip cookies, these are good.

Crispy, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 egg
1 egg yolk
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

1. Preheat the oven to 325°F. Grease cookie sheets or line with parchment paper.
2. Sift together the flour, baking soda and salt; set aside. In a medium bowl, cream together the melted butter, brown sugar and white sugar until well blended.
3. Beat in the vanilla, egg, and egg yolk until light and creamy. Mix in the sifted ingredients until just blended.
4. Stir in the chocolate chips by hand using a wooden spoon. Drop cookie dough onto the prepared cookie sheets.
5. Bake larger cookies for 15 to 17 minutes, or 10 to 12 minutes for smaller ones (check your cookies before they’re done; depending on your scoop size, your baking time will vary) in the preheated oven, or until the edges are lightly toasted. Cool on baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool completely (careful not to overbake).
