In a medium bowl, whisk the melted butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar together until no brown sugar lumps remain. Whisk in the egg, then the egg yolk and the vanilla extract.
Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix together until combined. Fold in the chocolate chips.
Cover the dough and chill in the refrigerator for 3 hours or up to 2 to 3 days.
Take the dough out of the refrigerator and allow it to slightly soften at room temperature for 10 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats. Set aside.
Roll the dough into balls to about 3 tablespoons of dough each. Roll the cookie dough balls to be taller rather than wide.
Place 8 balls of dough onto each cookie sheet. Press a few more chocolate chips on top of the dough balls, if desired.
Bake the cookies for 12 to 13 minutes. Allow to cool on the cookie sheet for 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
Melt the dark chocolate chips and shortening in a small bowl in the microwave. Drizzle on warm or cooled cookies.
Serve, and enjoy!
