Ganache Dipped Chocolate Chip Cookies


Total Time:

17 minutes



Well, there aren’t many things in life that are better than a Chocolate Chip Cookie. Except maybe a Chocolate Chip Cookie dipped in Ganache!!!! Obviously, right! So, I of course had to make these immediately. I had an excuse though, you see, it was my 5 year anniversary with my boyfriend the other day. 5 whole years!! Say what? Who would have thought. Me? In a 5 year relationship? I couldn’t even tolerate a 2 week relationship before this one. But here I am, 5 years later, still alive and kicking!


So to celebrate I made 5 of these Ganache Dipped Chocolate Chip Cookies. Well, I actually made more than 5, but I only gave 5 to my boyfriend. One for each year – get it πŸ™‚ And I gave the rest to my neighbors, because I couldn’t have these sitting around in the fridge just starring at me every. single. time. I. opened. the. fridge. It’s too tempting.

They are pretty amazing. And super decadent.

And pretty too!

Okay so he really got 4 and 7/8 cookie because I took a bite of one. I had to make sure they were okay! Just doing my job πŸ™‚

  • 1 cup unsalted butter at room temp
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 cup AP flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 cups Chocolate Chips
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 8 oz bittersweet chocolate


  • Cream together the butter and sugars in a mixer. Add the eggs and vanilla, making sure to scrape down the sides of the mixing bowl. Add the flour, salt, baking soda and baking powder and mix on low until everything is incorporated.
  • Chill the dough in the refrigerate for 2 hours.
  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees
  • Scoop out a 1/4 cup size of dough and roll it into a ball. Roll it around in some Chocolate Chips and place on a parchment lined baking sheet. Place 6 cookies on a sheet since they will spread due to their size. Bake for 12-14 minutes until just slightly golden around the edges. Remove from oven and let rest on the baking sheet. Note The might look a little under baked in the middle - but don't fear!! They will continue to bake a bit once removed from the oven.
  • While the cookies are cooling, go ahead and make the ganache.
  • In a small pot, bring the cream to a low simmer. Remove from heat and stir in the bittersweet chocolate with a wooden spoon until fully incorporated. Dip half of each cookie into the ganache and set on parchment paper to dry

    I have baked these cookies many times and they always turn out fabuliciously! I made these a few days ago while visiting my boyfriend’s father and of course he loved them :). He even had one for breakfast! Thank you for sharing such wonderful cookies!! You are so pro <33. Also, grats on the anniversary! He must be totally whipped with such brilliant cookies :D!

    Hi! I’ve made these a couple of times.. They taste super, but I don’t know how to get them dry off the parchment paper.. The ganache sticks to the paper and takes a bit of cookie with it. πŸ™ I’m not a baker, so I don’t know if I’m doing something wrong, or if I’m not waiting long enough?

    I love this recipe! The Cookies are Delish as is! Last night I just made a special batch for a co-worker’s b-day. I skipped the Ganache and substituted dark chocolate chips and added 8 slices of diced candied bacon (special request by the b-day boy). The b-day boy was blown away as was the rest of the office. πŸ™‚

    My only suggestion is don’t pre-heat your oven until AFTER your dough has chilled. Otherwise you’ll be leaving your oven for a good 2 hours. πŸ™
