Serves: 12
 
To make these as smaller cookie cups, use a 24 cup mini muffin pan and reduce the cooking time by about 5 minutes. You don't want to over bake these because they'd be too crunchy.
Ingredients
  • Cookie Cups:
  • ¾ cups unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup unsifted all purpose flour
  • ½ cup cocoa
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • Ganache:
  • ½ cup milk chocolate chips
  • ½ cup heavy cream (35%)
  • chocolate chip cookies, broken into pieces
  • jar of milk chocolate frosting
Instructions
  1. Cookie Cups:
  2. Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  3. Add egg and vanilla & beat well.
  4. In a separate bowl, combine flour, cocoa, baking soda & salt.
  5. Blend the flour mixture into the creamed mixture.
  6. Place cookie dough evenly into greased muffin tins.
  7. Bake at 350 F for 12 – 15 minutes. Be careful not to over bake or they'll be really crunchy.
  8. Remove from oven and use a spoon to press in the middle of each cookie cup. Let them cool completely before removing from pan.
  9. Ganache:
  10. Place chocolate chips in a medium bowl & set aside.
  11. In a small saucepan, bring heavy cream to a boil over high heat.
  12. Immediately pour heavy cream over chocolate chips. Let sit for 5 minutes then stir to mix completely.
  13. Once cookie cups are cool and removed from the pan, fill each cookie cup with ganache. Let these sit a few minutes while the cookie absorbs some of this ganache then fill each again.
  14. Once these have cooled, top each cookie cup with chocolate frosting and chocolate chip cookies.
