Eggless Chocolate Cookie cups with Ganache

Sometimes the efforts taken to get yourself cook something is more than the actual cooking time. It's exactly what happened in my case while I was thinking about this recipe. While I had so many other ideas thought for this theme, many things seem to happen at the same time that it never materialized.

When I realized that I will not be able to make the other ideas that were supposed to be made, I finally thought the first day idea should be repeated with making a cup with those cookies. To motivate myself, I confessed to my group this morning that I will be baking some soon. I wanted to make these before the kids left for school, somehow I couldn't and finally baked it after they left. I tasted the cookies, it was so good, I know the chocolate ganache in the center is going to be sinful!

I took the big muffin tray and realized it will end up being very huge. Imagine the mini muffin tray yeild this size! If you plan it well and make it ahead, these will be a great party food. I can't wait for the kids to come back in the evening to enjoy these!
