Cookie Cake

Some serious chocolatey goodness!!! This was my Mother's Day dessert:)
Cookie Cake

1 cup unsalted butter, room temp
3/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup white sugar
1 tbsp vanilla
2 eggs
2 1/3 cups flour
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup walnuts, coarsely chopped
1 cup chocolate chips

Ganache topping:
8 oz bittersweet chocolate, broken into pieces
1 oz semi sweet chocolate chips
1 cup heavy whipping cream

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream butter and sugars. Add vanilla and eggs, mix until fluffy. Add all dry ingredients at once, mixing just until wet and dry ingredients are incorporated. Fold in nuts. Don't over mix. Spoon into greased 10 inch springform pan. Bake about 25-30 minutes, just until set. Remove from oven and cool for about 30 minutes.
For ganache: In a saucepan, bring whipping cream to a boil. Remove from heat and add chocolate pieces. Whisk until smooth.
Remove cake from springform pan and place on serving platter. Pour ganache over the top and let it sit for about an hour until it hardens. You may set the dessert in the fridge to speed this up. Slice into wedges and serve!
