If you think that this recipe looks mouth-watering, then you’re right, because it is, and it tastes even better!


Chocolate Cookies

  • ½ cup unsalted butter
  • ½ cup powdered sugar
  • ¼ cup couverture sweet chocolate
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1¾ cup cake flour
  • ¼ cup ground almond
  • 1¼ tbsp cocoa powder

Chocolate Buttercream

  • ½ cup sweet chocolate
  • 70ml or 4¾ tbsp heavy cream
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter

Chocolate Ganache

  • 50ml or 3tbsp heavy cream
  • ½ cup sweet chocolate
  • ¾ tsp unsalted butter


Step 1

First off, melt the sweet chocolate, then mix together the powdered sugar and unsalted butter until nice and smooth, and add the melted chocolate followed by the egg yolks. Sift over the cake flour, ground almond, and cocoa powder, then give them a good mix until powdery consistency and divide the dough in half before wrapping them with plastic wrap. Roll them out until about 4mm thick, then put them inside the refrigerator, and let them set for about 1 hour before you start cutting them into 2-inch heart shapes. Place them in the preheated oven and let them bake at 170°C for about 12 to 15 minutes.


Step 2

While waiting for the cookies to bake, roll the leftover cookie dough into a teaspoon portion each, then make an indent in the middle using a card to resemble coffee beans, and bake them in the preheated oven for about 13 to 16 minutes. For the buttercream, place a saucepan over simmering water, then add the sweet chocolate, and stir them around until melted. Add the heavy cream in two additions, then mix them after every addition until smooth and incorporated, and remove from the water bath to allow the mixture to cool. In a large mixing bowl, add the unsalted butter, then beat it until it becomes white, add the cream into the chocolate mixture in three batches, and beat them together until well combined and incorporated.

Step 3

Transfer the buttercream into a piping bag and set it aside, place a small saucepan on a stove over medium heat, then add the heavy cream, and let it bring to a boil. Add the sweet chocolate, then give them a good stir until smooth and combined, add the unsalted butter, and continue to stir them together until melted and incorporated. Transfer the ganache to a piping bag, then pipe the buttercream and ganache onto the cooled cookies, and top each cookie with another cookie. Place the cookies in the refrigerator, then let them chill until set, serve, and enjoy!
