These Chocolate Thumbprint Cookies are so cute and yummy! You’ll smile bigger with every bite! Grab a glass of milk and enjoy!
I always walk down the baking aisle when I’m at the grocery store. Sometimes twice. 🙂 I love to see if there’s anything new and exciting or just something that catches my eye. Last week I noticed some Ghirardelli thumbprint drops and I knew I needed to make thumbprint cookies! Of course they had to be chocolate too. 🙂
I love how cute and tiny thumbprint cookies are! I could eat about 20 of them! I think food tastes better in mini form.
I discovered a few simple tricks for keeping the chocolate on top from melting when you press it into the warm cookie, fresh out of the oven. First, you’ll need to completely freeze the thumbprint chocolates (or Hershey Kisses). Then, you’ll see that they still melt a little on the bottom when you press them in. So after placing the cookies on cooling racks, I immediately transferred them to the refrigerator to stop the chocolate on top from continuing to melt. This way, they keep their shape and the cookies look so pretty!
These cookies remind me of these Chocolate Turtle Cookies that I shared what seems like ages ago. They’re still a favorite!
These cookies taste like a scrumptious chocolate brownie in cookie form. They’re definitely better the first day, so be sure to enjoy them while fresh! Share them at potlucks, BBQ’s and summer bashes. If this doesn’t satisfy your chocolate craving, (because if you’re like me, more is always better when it comes to chocolate), be sure to check out these other delicious chocolate dessert recipes!
Have you been baking much this summer? I definitely have been!
