Another recipe from Pinehurst Inn Bed & Breakfast in Bayfield, WI
I am a sucker for chocolate and caramel, one of the best combinations ever (okay, peanut butter and chocolate also may be a contender). When you add pecans to it, well I’m a goner. So, it is no surprise that when I came across a recipe from Taste of Home for Chocolate Caramel Thumbprint cookies, I had to try them. While I thought they were good, I couldn’t stop there. I had to make a few tweaks, which I think made them even more decadent (and they are decadent). The recipe calls for melted caramel candies, but I used my homemade caramel sauce for the ones pictured. The caramel from the candies set up (harden) more than my caramel sauce so they aren’t as messy to eat and much easier to stack. I tend to use the caramel from the caramel candies more because I make a lot of these cookies to give away as treats, gifts, or to have around for friends that might drop by or for a satisfying reward at the end of the day. These cookies have become part of our regular rotation of afternoon treats for our B&B guests. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
