Ingredients

For the Cookies:

  • 1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2-1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 cups chocolate chips

For the Ganache:

  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 8 ounces bittersweet chocolate

Directions

1: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

2: Cream together butter and sugars in a mixer for 2-3 minutes.

3: Add the eggs and vanilla, making sure to scrape down the sides of the mixing bowl so everything is evenly incorporated.

4: Add flour, salt, baking soda and baking powder, and mix on low until everything is just incorporated, making sure not to overmix.

5: Chill dough in refrigerator for at least 45 minutes and up to 4 hours. While dough is chilling, place chocolate chips in a wide, shallow bowl.

6: Scoop out a 1/4-cup size of dough and roll it into a ball. Roll it around in the chocolate chips and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet.

7: Place 6 cookies on a sheet. Note: They will spread due to their size, so it's better to bake fewer at a time so they don't run together.

8: Bake for 12-14 minutes until just slightly golden around the edges. Remove from oven and let cool on baking sheet for about 5 minutes more. Remove cookies from baking sheet and transfer to a wire rack to cool. Repeat this process for the remaining dough.

9: While cookies are cooling, go ahead and make the ganache. In a small pot, bring cream to a low simmer.

10: Remove from heat and stir in bittersweet chocolate with a wooden spoon until fully incorporated and all the chocolate is melted. You should have a glossy chocolate mixture. Dip half of each cooled cookie into the ganache and set on parchment paper to dry. Refrigerate chocolate-dipped cookies for 20 minutes to set the chocolate.
