Make and take: Make ahead of time and store in the freezer in resealable plastic bags. Serve cold.
Cookies with ganache: A creative friend decided that melting chocolate chips into whipping cream as the base for these cookies would be easier than his mother's version, which uses milk, butter, cocoa and sugar. The result is a very easy drop cookie that is based on what is essentially a chocolate ganache, with oats added for texture.
