Homemade Chocolate Caramel Thumbprint Cookies

The quickest way to my heart is with chocolate and caramel. These thumbprint cookies from All Food Recipes make me swoon! It’s probably because they have a caramel center with a chocolate drizzle and a pecan coating. Yum. Theses are the grownup version of the cookies we used to make when we were littles. Oh we’ve come a long way from just sticking Hershey’s Kisses on cookies.
