Chocolate Cookies with Earl Grey Ganache, are delicate cookies, perfect for holidays. The bergamot from the Earl Grey brings elegance to the scene.
If you never tried chocolate and Earl Grey tea together, you missed a lot…I did too, as it was for the first time when I made these Chocolate Cookies with Earl Grey Ganache. As Valentine’s Day is approaching and you look to impress your honey with something delicious, these cookies might be the answer for you.
Rounds of chocolate sugar cookies are joined together with Earl Grey tea ganache. The Earl Grey tea flavor adds the citrus taste and perfume of the bergamot orange to the filling. How that tastes? D.I.V.I.N.E!!!
Best tip for these cookies:
You have to use milk chocolate as bittersweet or dark chocolate would overpower the tea.
HOW THE COOKIES ARE MADE:
These are sugar cookies that involve all-purpose flour, sugar, butter, cocoa powder and some brown sugar(see recipe on the bottom for the exact amounts of everything).
The cookie dough is formed then into a log, refrigerated and sliced into rounds, then baked to perfection. A dollop (or more-it’s up to you) of Earl Grey chocolate ganache goes between two cookies, like a little sandwich, then served. With Earl Grey tea…of course…or coffee.
For tea lovers who also like chocolate, these cookies will be heaven-sent. When to serve them? WHENEVER you want!
