I knew it was lethal to go pottering down the chocolate bar aisle. I came across Caramac bars, which I haven’t had for ages. They instantly brought back memories of my teenage years when I spent all the money I made from my Avon round on chocolate. Some things don’t change much!
Thumbprint Cookies are such a cute name – So called because you insert your thumb in the centre to make the indent. What you add to the cookie is totally up to you – I wanted to make some jam ones as my Secret Recipe Club partner for this month has done, but the children persuaded me otherwise. Even dried apricots would work but chocolate of some form was definitely the winner in our house!
We went with a bar of Caramac chopped into small chunks and tiny chocolate chip pieces. The girls had great fun helping me make these cookies – They love dipping their thumbs into flour then into the centre of the cookie, then popping in the chocolate too. Definitely a great recipe for cooking with kids – Even better, these only take 10-12 minutes to cook so perfect for the impatient cooks amongst us.
As I have mentioned, this recipe was taken from my partner for this month’s Secret Recipe Club – My Wholefood Family. Absolutely jam packed full of family recipes using whole foods. There are so many recipes on Susan’s blog that I am desperate to come back to. I love the use of wholegrain flours and coconut sugar in so many recipes. Definitely a blog to follow if you are interested in eliminating processed foods from your diet.
Susan lives in Australia with her husband 3 sons. She has addiction to cookbooks and reading food blogs – Sounds just like me but with boys instead of girls! Funnily enough, we have both been blogging for 8 years now.
