Ridiculously dangerous cookies

These cookies need to come with a warning.  I’m not sure what kind of warning, maybe just WARNING: do not make these unless you have people to help you eat them!  or WARNING: do not leave yourself alone in the room with these cookies! 

Bottom line, they are dangerous, evil cookies.  Sure, they look all innocent, but then you bite in and taste all the yummy chocolate and salty topping and it’s all over from there – you’re hooked!  I’m not a huge sweets fan but these cookies were the death of me.  I’ve never had a cookie so addictive before.  It’s the sea salt sprinkled on top – to die for.  After two days in the house I had to split up the rest to be taken to work and sent the rest with Scott to work.  Blame Amy from Sing for your Supper.  It’s all her fault.  I need an extra three days at the gym for all of the cookies I consumed. 

But don’t let that scare you away from the cookies.  They are wonderfully delicious.  almost too delicious….

Chocolate Ganache Stuffed Cookies
courtesy of Sing for Your Supper

1 batch chocolate chip cookie dough, without the chips (I used a double batch of the Nestle Tollhouse recipe)
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 cup chocolate chips
pinch of sugar
coarse sea salt for sprinkling

Preheat oven to 350.  Prepare cookie dough per recipe, chill for 1-2 hours.  Heat heavy cream and sugar in a small pan over medium heat until boiling.  Pour over chocolate chips, let sit for 30 seconds.  Stir to combine.  Chill for at least one hour.

To assemble, scoop out 1/2 tbsp cookie dough.  Flatten with the palm of your hand.  Place a small spoonful of ganache in the center.  Cover with another scoop of flattened dough (you’ll have a small disk-shaped cookie).  Roll into a ball.  Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.  Sprinkle with coarse sea salt.  Place on cookie sheet 2 inches apart.  Bake for 12-15 minutes until they start to brown.  Let cool 3-4 minutes on cookie sheet before removing to cooling racks to cool completely. 

Enjoy! And you will enjoy these, over and over and over again….
