Ganache Dipped Chocolate Chip Cookies

Any chocolate chip cookie with brown sugar in it is by default a winner in my book. But by having a quick dip in a chocolate ganache pool, these were bigger winners!

Okay, i admit, these are a bit indulgent.

I would have made these a long long time ago if it weren’t for the 2 hours chilling time. I do most of my bakings in the morning, and the 2 hours chilling time is not exactly convenient in my daily mad morning rush.

I could have made the dough the night before , but i don’t like the idea of going to the kitchen and start pulling out my mixers, mixing bowls, and other related cookie making kitchen utensils in the evenings.

So, finally, this morning, i woke up extra early, and get myself a 2 hours head start just for these. And boy, was it worth it.

Oh, I really wouldn’t advise you to skip the chilling, cause without it, the dough would be too soft to handle.

So anyways, instead of dumping chocolate chips into the batter, individual scoops of unbaked cookie doughs were rolled into the choco chips . This caused the underside of the cookies to be delightfully overpopulous with said chocolate chips 🙂 Even i myself was pretty surprised.

While the cookies were deliciously chewy, moist and worthy of the classic american chocolate chip cookie title, the ganache wouldnt completely dry out. And since i was bringing them to work ( i  cant trust myself to leave them at home), stacking them together was quite a messy business.

So if you were planning to take these on a trip outside your home, i would suggest reducing the cream from the chocolate ganache. And unless you have some Herculean willpower, i woud really really suggest you bring these out of the house asap!

    I like the idea of rolling these in the chocolate chips for increased chip population. Mmmmmm!

    I was going to email you – do you have a recipe recommendation for chocolate ganache for filling and piping on mini cupcakes?

      I usually use equal amounts of heavy cream and chocolate to make my piped and chocolate ganache.
      For piped chocolate, i usually melt the chocolate first in a double boiler and let it cool to room temperature. I then whip my whipping cream till soft peaks, and slowly drizzle the chocolate in while whipping.
      As for the chocolate ganache. i put my heavy cream and chocolate in my mixing bowl and double boil them together. I then set them aside till they semi harden and thickens. Hope this helps! 🙂

    Hi! I’m delighted that you like my recipe so well as to write about it on your own blog. It a truly decadent Chocolate Chip Cookie! Placing the cookies in the fridge with the ganache might help the ganache set if you wanted to transport it out of the house 🙂

    I would ask that you rewrite the recipe instructions in your own words. Otherwise you are violating my copyrights. Thank you so much for your consideration.

    That’s good advice about taking these cookies away from home! I would eat waaaay too many of them otherwise. With chocolate chips and ganache, these are so tempting!
