Chocolate Mint Nightcaps

These sounded so delightful!  Mint… chocolate… nightcap.  All things I love.  But I did not love all these things together in this cookie.

The ganache, despite being ganache and otherwise awesome, needed more mint flavor, certainly more than what was imbued with fresh mint and cream coming to a boil together.

The chocolate cookies came out soft and rather bland.  I was expecting some crispness to lend contrast to the rather soft and forgiving ganache.

And the "nightcap" looked like something I might find on my lawn from a neighboring dog.

Not my type of cookie, but I was excited to be back baking after missing the walnut loaves earlier in the month.

For others' experience with this cookie, be sure to check out the blogroll Tuesdays with Dorie.
