Triple Chocolate Caramel Thumbprint Cookies

Sometimes reality just sneaks up on you and you have to just roll with it and improvise. Just like this cookies season. I was so cutup with working on some recipes (like THIS, and THIS), it completely slipped my mind that I need to get some cookies boxes ready.

This recipe was the perfect solution to my problem. Easy, fast and so so delicious.

About The Recipe:

  • This recipe was adopted from Taste Of Home Magazine.
  • You can add to the dough 1/2 cup of chopped pecans or Hazelnuts.
  • I used Nestle Dulch De Leche but you can use any other brand for Dulche De Leche or caramel.
  • Make sure not to over fill the cavities or the Caramel will overflow.
  • It is important to smooth the sides cookie after adding the Caramel to avoid it from going thro any opening.
  • The cookie is ready when the caramel STARTS to bubble. Baking it longer will result in a flat unattractive filling.
