Hot Fudge Thumbprint Cookies
Straight To Recipe

Jam Sham. Give Us Chocolate!

We took the concept of traditional jam thumbprint cookies and gave it a wickedly chocolatey twist. Crumbly, buttery shortbread cookies are loaded with mini chocolate chips, but instead of filling a thumbprint full of jam, we pour in cooled hot fudge sauce. When the cookies bake, the fudge cooks down more and the result is a little chewy pocket of fudge goodness that is truly irresistible. 

Shake Things Up.

What makes True Scoops and our recipes so great is that they're versatile. Use any other kind of chip in the cookie (peanut butter chips, white chocolate chips, etc) or even rainbow sprinkles! 

Don't have hot fudge sauce on hand? Try our salted butterscotch sauce for a salty, gooey treat.
