These Caramel Spice Thumbprint Cookies start with a spice cake mix and end with a white chocolate drizzle – cookie perfection!
Oh. My. Gosh. I am SO glad that Halloween is finally over! Don’t get me wrong – I love Halloween. Really. It’s just there is always so much drama surrounding it and of course, it’s always super fabulous when it’s on a Thursday.
Why? Seriously, can we not unanimously agree to have Halloween on a Friday night? See, the kids in our neighborhood, you know the “older” kids, don’t realize that our boys have an 8 o’clock bedtime. Apparently when you’re 12 (or 17 as the case may be), you don’t really worry so much about what the lack of jack-o-lanterns might mean.
Speaking of 17 year olds, OH MY GOSH! I don’t even know how many teenagers rolled up to our house, NO COSTUMES ON, and shoved their backpacks in my face. If Bryce wasn’t having the bestest time ever handing out candy, I’m not sure I would have been able to hold back. Honestly, I’m all for them taking my candy so I don’t have any extra lying around the house, but please, PLEASE, at least put on a costume! Isn’t that a rule? It should be.
Speaking of dangerous goodies around the house, these cookies certainly fit the bill. I quickly realized that they needed to be packaged up and sent with Chris to work today for a potluck. Yep. I’m smart.
I’ll admit, I am always a sucker for caramel. It may be my new favorite thing. And I especially love it when it’s all soft and gooey inside a cookie. Kind of like this.
I’m totally jumping ahead here. First you have to actually make the cookies, which isn’t hard at all considering they start with a box of Spice cake mix. Sure, the dough has to be refrigerated and all but that just gives you time to get the pecans chopped and unwrap the caramels. And try to not to eat said caramels. I did say I’m a sucker for caramel right?
These are thumbprint cookies which are always fun, because well, that means there’s usually a puddle of goodness in the middle. I’m pretty sure that’s always a good thing.
I went ahead and added a white chocolate drizzle because the cookies looked a little naked without it. I had help. See the cookie on the far right? That’s Bryce’s masterpiece. I think he has a future in drizzling…
Wait. That didn’t sound right.
…Anyways, a short time later you end up with this awesomeness…
Now people, you bring these to a party and I can guarantee you you’re going to get compliments and recipe requests. Just send them my way ;)
