Our eats: Chocolate covered chocolate chip cookies

Weekends are usually filled with trips to the garden, beach and a bit of shopping and over the last two days I did a little of all of the above. On Sunday I dropped off these tasty bits to the San Francisco vegan bake sale along with a box of bunny shaped snickerdoodles {proceeds benefited the house rabbit society} for visitors to get their snack on. After making these chocolate chip cookies it was quite clear that while they were perfectly round and tasted great, their curb appeal was a little lack luster so what did I do? Make a chocolate ganache for dipping, duh. Even the husband got in on the fun with the dipping....thankfully I got this shot in last night, we went to town on the left overs and only have 2 left!
