      Directions

      Place a small pan over medium heat. Add the cream and warm until almost boiling, about 3 minutes. Turn off the heat and add the chocolate. Stir for 1 to 2 minutes until the chocolate melts. Place the chocolate mixture into a small bowl. Cool the chocolate until firm enough to roll into balls. (To cool quickly, place the chocolate in the refrigerator for about 1 hour.)

      Once the chocolate is firm, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

      Place the sugar in an empty pie dish. Roll the chocolate into teaspoon-sized balls and set aside. Roll a walnut-sized ball of cookie dough into a thin log about 3 inches long. Place a chocolate ball on a work surface and wrap a cookie dough log around the chocolate ball and press to adhere. It should look like a cookie version of the planet Saturn. Roll the cookie in the sugar to coat. Place the cookie on a large baking sheet and continue forming
      the remaining cookies and rolling them in sugar. Once all the cookie balls are on the baking sheets, use the bottom of a drinking glass to flatten the cookies to about 1/4 inch thick.

      Bake the cookies for 15 minutes. Transfer the cookies to a wire rack to cool, then serve.

        These are good. Be sure to buy good chocolate. However, they are messy. Rolling the chocolate in your hands makes a major mess! I would recommend rolling all your chocolate balls first. Then start wrapping the sugar cookie dough around them. Only roll out what will fit on your cookie sheet. As for taste, these are very good. If you like sugar cookies and chocolate - you'll love these!

        These cookies are wonderful but very messy to make. I used the cookie dough first and made an indention into which I added a scoop of chocolate. I them sprinkled the cookie with sugar and used a glass to flatten the cookie. Thet were wonderful and a lot less messy
