Ingredients for Thumbprint chocolate cookie:

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • ¾ cup of white sugar
  • ¾ cup corn syrup
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 package (11 ounces) white chocolate chips
  • 1 bar (1.4 ounces) chocolate-covered English toffee, chopped
  • 1 jar (4 ounces) maraschino cherries, halved


  • Large and small bowl
  • Egg beater
  • Oven

Step by Step Instructions

  1. Beat butter and 1/2 cup sugar in a large bowl until well combined; Add the corn syrup, egg, and vanilla. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, cocoa, and baking soda; Gradually add this dry mix to the butter mixture. Mix well. Cover and refrigerate the dough for 1 hour or until firm enough to handle.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  3. In a small bowl, combine the remaining 1/4 cup sugar and cinnamon. Shape dough into 1-inch balls; roll each ball in the sugar mixture and place it on a cookie sheet. Press slightly the center of the cookie to make some space in the center with your thumb.
  4. Bake in a preheated 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) oven for 7 to 8 minutes or until done.
  5. Take the cookies out of the oven. If the notch has become indistinct, use the top of a spoon and press the notch further. Immediately place 1 teaspoon of white chips in each indentation. After several minutes, stir the melted fries with a spoon. Top with caramel bits and maraschino cherry halves (if desired). Cool the cookies on a wire rack.
