There is just something so sweet about a thumbprint cookie. Growing up my mom would buy the shortbread ones with the cutest little chocolate center, and then sometimes she would make a peanut butter cookie with a chocolate kiss in the center so for this Valentines Day I wanted to make a chocolate cookie version.
I am all about chocolate anything and this chocolate cookie with a chocolate kiss in the center is a perfect chocolate treat and an even more perfect treat for Valentines Day.
To make these cookies decadent I used dark cocoa powder for added richness, buttermilk for a little tang and tartness (which I love in a cookie), and then assorted sprinkles to celebrate Valentines Day in a fun way. I used regular milk chocolate kisses but you could use any variety of kisses you prefer, or any variety of sprinkles you like making them perfect for your family.
A heart for everyone

Happy Birthday Mammaw
A quick funny…my Mammaw’s birthday is on Valentines Day and when I took these cookies to her a few days ago she got so excited and thought I made them all for her…of course I obliged and told her they were an early birthday cookie and before I knew it all 12 cookies were GONE. Literally in a matter of 30 minutes she had eaten all of her cookies and then decided she was too full to go to dinner…well I probably would have been to full to eat dinner as well. Needless to say Mammaw loved them and thought they were a perfect early birthday treat.
Whether you are making these chocolate thumbprints for Valentines or just for a fun weekend treat (the kids would love to roll the dough in the sprinkles or push the kiss into the center of the cookie) they are sure to be delicious.
