Salted Caramel Chocolate Thumbprint Cookies

Hello hello and welcome to another week! Can you believe it’s almost may??? Where has 2018 gone???? Anyway, I’m off travelling again this week for work (heading to Denver CO — hey Colorado friends!) but I thought I would drop in to give you something sweet to take your mind off the fact that it’s Monday.

Salted Caramel Chocolate Thumbprint Cookies.

Lets say that again, a little louder this time. Salted Caramel Chocolate Thumbprint Cookies! Oh yeaaaaa. These will definitely get your week off to a great start!

So my main motivations for making these cookies, aside from just wanting them…duh…was to try to use up the rest of my homemade Dulce de Leche that I made for these amazing Dulce de Leche sandwich cookies! I mean, I can’t let all that goodness go to waste can I???

But never fear, if you don’t have homemade dulce de leche or caramel sauce, you can just pick some up from the store on your way home from work today. Problem solved.

Now, aside from the need to use my Dulce de Leche up, I adore thumbprint cookies! For me, its very much a Christmas cookie swap thing — you know the peanut butter cookies with a Hershey Kiss in the center? But these are all grown up and fancy.

That sprinkle of sea salt is what does it! I tell you, sweet and slightly salty, it’s like a match made in heaven! Ooegy and gooey caramel surrounded by a bed of dark chocolate topped with sea salt. Ugh. I die. You must make these!

Don’t worry, I’ll wait…

So head on down below, to grab the recipe so you too can experience the greatness that are these cookies! I hope you have a fabulous week! See ya tomorrow!

xo,

Danielle

Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 Degrees F. In the bowl of your stand mixer, cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add Vanilla and mix to combine.
  2. In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking power, baking soda, and cocoa powder. Whisk to combine. Gradually add dry ingredients to butter mixture. Combine thoroughly.
  3. Using a teaspoon, form cookie dough into balls, flattening slightly. Place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 8 minutes.
  4. Remove cookies from oven and using a tsp measure, lightly press the rounded side into the warm cookies creating a divot in the center. Return to the oven and back for 3-4 more minutes. Remove and cool.
  5. Once cookies have cooled, add dulce de leche filling with a teaspoon to the center of each cookie. Follow with sea salt. Serve immediately or refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
