    VelcrowMistress's Note:

    These cookies are heaven! The gooey center will make you melt, and if you can bring yourself to share them, you'll become the talk of the town. This recipe is an original creation, and now officially my favorite cookie ever. The ganache will have to refrigerate overnight, and it's best to let the cookie dough chill overnight as well. The ganache recipe will make 1 cup of filling, but you can make larger batches if desired, it keeps nearly forever in the fridge, and will save a lot of time for future batches of cookies. I have edited the recipe to include 1ts of baking soda in the dough to help with the rise, per the review's suggestion. Yield varies on size of cookie. This recipe isn't fast, but it's worth it!

    Cookie Dough


    1. 1
    2. 2
      Bring the cream and sugar to a light boil, being careful not to burn it.
    3. 3
      Add butter, vanilla, and chocolate chips.
    4. 4
      Stir constantly until all chocolate is melted and mixture is completely smooth. Be careful not to burn it.
    5. 5
      Place in a covered container (I reuse 8-16 oz jars) and refrigerate overnight.
    6. 6
      Cookie Dough:.
    7. 7
      In large mixer bowl; cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
    8. 8
      Add eggs and vanilla; beat well.
    9. 9
      In a separate bowl, combine 2 cups flour, cocoa, baking powder & soda, and salt; gradually blend into creamed butter mixture. Continue adding flour, 1 tbs at a time, until the dough becomes a smooth, well combined ball. Allow dough to chill at least 3 hours, but overnight is preferred.
    10. 10
      Once dough and ganache have chilled overnight, start by prepping the ganache balls.
    11. 11
      Create 1/2 inch balls of chocolate. If desired, roll balls of chocolate in powdered sugar, finely ground coffee, or a 50/50 mixture of the two.
    12. 12
      Now, create a 1 inch ball of cookie dough, then flatten it out to a 1/4 thick, palm sized pancake. Place a ganache ball in the center of the cookie dough, and wrap it up so the ganache is surrounded in dough.
    13. 13
      Place dough balls 2 inches apart on a parchment lined baking sheet, and bake at 375 for 10 minutes. Allow to cool at least 10 minutes, and be careful of hot ganache when eating warm from the oven.

      The cookies taste great, but mine were very flat and not very appealing, visually. I would like them better if they had some rise to them. If anyone has advice, I'm open to it. Thanks for the recipe.
