Chocolate Ganache Drops cookie recipe

This recipe came from my friend Kirsten. We made it the first time and they were a BIG hit!


  • 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup vegetable shortening
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 tablespoon milk


  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 6 oz semisweet chocolate chips
  • 4 oz toffee bits
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Add and sift the cocoa powder, flour, baking powder and salt set aside. Combine butter, shortening and sugar.
  • Add egg and milk. Mix well.
  • Roll dough into balls and place on cookie sheet.
  • Using a teaspoon, depress the center of the cookie.
  • Cook 9-11 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and, while still warm, depress the center of the cookie again to make a deep well.

After cookies have cooled:

  • Add heavy cream to double boiler on low heat and warm through.
  • Add chips and toffee.
  • Stir continuously until all chocolate has melted.
  • Remove from heat.
  • Place a generous amount of ganache in to well of cookie.
  • Allow 1 hour to cool.
