Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies

It's important to use mini chocolate chips in this recipe; using regular size chips will make it too difficult to roll the dough.

Mini chocolate chips

Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and chill until firm. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Roll the dough out on a lightly floured counter to 1/4-inch thickness and cut, then transfer the cookies onto cookie sheets that have been lined with parchment paper or silicone liners. Bake 8 to 10 minutes, until the surface of the cookies looks completely dry and set. Let the cookies cool slightly on the sheets, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Decorate, if desired, before serving.

Milk Chocolate Ganache

Bring 3/4 cup heavy cream to a boil in a small saucepan. Add 1 3/4 cups milk chocolate chips, turn off the heat, and let sit for 5 minutes. Stir until completely melted and smooth. (If the chips are not completely melted, return the saucepan to low heat for a minute or two, stirring constantly.)

I tried this recipe without the chocolate chips and it was still very good. The dough is easy to work with and my cut out sheep, rabbits, and ducks turned out beautifully.
