I bought these fabulous cookies cutters last time I was at Ikea, and I was so excited to use them.
Rather than regular sugar cookies, I thought the shapes would look adorable in a dark brown, so I set about making chocolate sugar cookies. I found this recipe for the cookies, and made dark chocolate ganache to pipe around the top. My favorites are the hedgehogs, and the squirrels. I also had some teeny tiny cookie cutters from a swap of a garden gnome and a squirrel.
Natalie piping like a pro.
So cute. And SO yummy! My favorite part is that they didn't spread as they cooked like sugar cookies are wont to do. They also tasted fabulous, kind of like brownies.
