Shape dough into 1-inch balls and place at least 1 inch apart on ungreased baking sheets.
Bake the cookies for 6-7 minutes at 350 degrees, just until set. The sides should be set but the top still shiny.
Use a spatula to transfer the cookies to a cooling rack and cool the cookies completely to room temperature.
To make the chocolate ganache frosting, chop the semi-sweet bakers chocolate bar into small chunks; place the chocolate in a small mixing bowl and set aside. In a small saucepan, heat the heavy whipping cream over medium heat just until it begins to simmer. Pour the hot cream over the chopped semi-sweet chocolate and let it stand for 5 minutes. Whisk the chocolate and cream together until well blended then let stand for 15 minutes to thicken. Spoon the chocolate ganache over cookies.
