My favorite gifts for the holidays are always homemade. This season, Vital Farms and King Arthur Flour are making this easier than ever with a holiday baking kit!
Cookies make the perfect gift, and these Double Chocolate Ganache Cookie Cups are no exception. I used my favorite chocolate cookie recipe and filled it with rich chocolate ganache. You can top these with sprinkles or chopped peppermint candy for a more festive look.
Find the recipe below!
- 1 cup Vital Farms Butter
- 1 cup packed light brown sugar
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 2 Vital Farms Eggs
- 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
- 11/2 cups King Arthur all-purpose flour
- 1 cup Cocoa powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 7 ounces chocolate, roughly chopped
- 3 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
Preheat the oven to 350° F. Generously grease a mini muffin pan.
Melt the butter in a microwave-safe bowl for 30-45 seconds. Combine with the brown and granulated sugar and beat on medium speed until well combined. Next add the eggs and vanilla extract and continue beating until well incorporated.
In a separate bowl, combine the remaining dry ingredients, stir to combine and slowly add into the dough, mixing on low speed until dough comes together.
Use a medium cookie scoop (approximately 1-1.5 tablespoons) to scoop dough into prepared pan. Bake at 350°F for 10-12 minutes. Allow to cool for at least 5 minutes. Use a tart shaper to gently push down the middle of the cookies and cool completely in the pan.
For the filling: Combine chocolate and heavy whipping cream in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at 50% power for 1-2 minutes, stirring occasionally until it’s completely melted, then stir until smooth.
Use a spoon to fill the center of each cookie with ganache. Garnish with sprinkles or chopped peppermint candies if desired. Allow ganache to set completely prior to packaging, refrigerate if necessary. Note: Store in an airtight container at room temperature or you can make these ahead and store in the freezer until you’re ready to share!
