Chocolate Caramel Thumbprints

cookie closeup Well I decided on the Chocolate Caramel Thumbprints.  I found the recipe on Better Homes & Gardens website.  Side note – If you don’t already check out their site – you may want to.  They have great ideas for cooking, decorating and crafts.  I signed up for their newsletter and I always enjoy seeing what new ideas they have come up with!!
The recipe for the cookies can be found here.  It’s a simple recipe – but there are multiple steps but totally worth the work!  These cookies came out GOOD!  And they look pretty snazzy, if I do say so myself.  I neglected to take pictures of making the dough and rolling into balls.  What can I say my hands were covered with egg whites and pecans…  Sorry!  But once they came out of the oven this is how they looked:
Looking pretty tasty! They are like little individual nutty – brownies.  Time for the caramel!

Ok – one more step – a chocolate drizzle.  I used a plastic pastry bag, but you could totally use a ziplock bag with the same result.  And then all you do is drizzle away…

**TIP** lay down parchment paper before you set-up your cooling racks – this will save a BIG mess for later. 
Like YUM!  Make these cookies soon – Your recipients will be happy AND impressed – PROMISE!  Oh and FYI – the BH&G recipe yields 2 dozen for 1 recipe – I doubled mine for 4 dozen.  I need 3 dozen for the swap and you need some extras to “taste”!  Ok – I must go lay down – the chocolate coma is taking over…


  1. Wow what a wonderful party. I had such a good time. Dick loves these cookies. I used them last night for the neighborhood get together that we had. They were a real hit there, too.
    I hope the cookie swap becomes a tradition. (Hint-Hint-Hint)

  2. My swap is over but I think I need to make those this week. Talk about yum!


I can't hear you!! Unless you leave a message. Holler back now!
