Are you trying to think of a cookie recipe perfect for the chocolate lover in your life? Well, let me just tell you, this is the one!

Chocolate Ganache Cookies Recipe

I can’t really take credit for these decadent cookies, though. These cookies were my husband’s idea.

Even though he isn’t a freak about chocolate like my son and I are, he still came up with the idea of these little babies! I was talking with him about my ganache recipe that I have also shared with you and his idea for this cookie was born.

I love it when that happens!

How to Make Chocolate Ganache Cookies

For the chocolate cookies, I prepared the cookie dough and then rolled them in a coarse sugar before baking. The sugar on these looks like like little diamonds all over these cookies. It’s almost like the are little gems themselves!

For the ganache filling, I used my favorite recipe and then let it cool completely. Then, once the cookies were also cooled completely, I added a scoop of ganache to the flat side of one cookie and then sandwiched it with another cookie.

They are to die for!

    Just made these and they are delicious! The cookies turned out bigger than I expected (and took a few extra minutes to bake) but they are easy to make and super chocolatey. I have already sent the recipe to some fellow chocolate fans to try.


    1. Robyn Stone says:

      I’m so glad you loved these cookies, Jen! Hope your friends do as well. Thanks!

    I bake a lot to share with friends, family and co-workers and consider myself to be a seasoned veteran. My office mate–who has sampled literally dozens of different desserts of mine over the past five years, from chocolate chip cookies, to strawberry rhubarb pie, to pavlova–said these were the best thing I’d ever made. I was almost offended, except the cookies really are that good. Definitely recommend.

    1. Robyn Stone says:

      Thanks so much, Mellie! So glad you and your friend loved the cookies.

  3. Madi says:

    How are these stored? Want to make as christmas cookies…

    1. Robyn Stone says:

      Hi Madi,
      You will store in airtight container up to 2 days. Then store in refrigerator in airtight container up to week. Enjoy! xo

  4. Ming says:

    This looks amazing and I want to try to make it! I would just like to clarify, is that 1 cup 2 sticks butter = 2 cups butter? Or do you mean 1 cup butter? Thanks!

    1. Robyn Stone says:

      Hi Ming,
      You use 2 sticks, which equals 1 cup of butter. I think the ( ) got removed by mistake. Thanks! Hope you enjoy them! xo

    I want to make these cookies eggless..what should I substitute eggs with?

  6. Sapna says:

    Can you suggest a substitute for eggs in your recipes as we are vegetarian

    1. Suzy Holland says:

      I made these tonight and I bake several times a week. These are the best cookies I have ever made or eaten! I will be sharing this recipe with my family and friends! White chocolate is my favorite, so I made a white chocolate ganache to put on half of the cookies and they were amazing too! Thank you for this delicious recipe!❤️❤️❤️

    2. Robyn Stone says:

      Thanks so much, Suzy! So glad you loved them.
