Today I'm sharing a recipe for a classic flavor combination. Basically if we make anything with chocolate and salted caramel at the bakery - it sells. I've learned that this is what the people want. So these Chocolate Salted Caramel Thumbprint Cookies are a recipe that everyone will love!
I love thumbprint cookies because they are easy to make, but they seem impressive. Not only that, but they are filled with delicious-ness. I use Mama Ganache Milk Chocolate Chips, as they are little round disks of milk chocolate. These are perfect for the center of thumbprint cookies as they are perfectly round and flat, and they are the exact size! This also makes it really easy to cover them with caramel. You can use milk chocolate pieces in a pinch, but they may not be perfectly round.
These Chocolate Salted Caramel Thumbprint Cookies go best with a glass of milk. I use my homemade Caramel Sauce recipe, and I like to make that the day before so it's ready to go and not hot when I fill the cookies. Caramel sauce is best at room temperature, so making it ahead of time and allowing it to cool and com to room temperature will really make these cookies that much easier. Get the recipe below for my Chocolate Salted Caramel Thumbprint Cookies.
