Chocolate caramel thumbprints cookies

All thumbprint cookies recipes are kid friendly. Including this. And mine love caramel too…



  • 115 g (1/2 cup) butter
  • 150 g (2/3 cup) sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 Tbs milk
  • 140 g (1 cup) flour
  • 33g (1/3 cup) cocoa
  • rum
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped walnuts

Cream butter and sugar until fluffy. Beat in the egg yolk, milk and rum. Sift in the flour, cocoa and a pinch of salt. Wrap the dough in plastic film and refrigerate 1h.

Shape the dough in 28 balls, roll in egg white, then walnuts.Place on cookie sheets about 5 cm apart. Ask some help for little thumbs, or big and dent each cookie (or use a wooden spoon handle)



Bake for 12 minutes at 175°C


  • 100 g chocolate
  • 2 Tbs caramel
  • 28 chocolate kisses

Melt the chocolate and add the caramel.

Drizzle some white chocolate on cookies, if you prefer, then spoon or pipe the filling into each cookie, and press a chocolate kiss in center.
