Easy to make s'mores thumbprint cookies. A delectable melted marshmallow & melted semi-sweet chocolate drizzled on top. This will be a big hit at any holiday party!

At the time I created these, I was involved with a dance organization and they were hosting an end of season party. At the time I was involved with several dance performance groups, including salsa, bachata, and a Korean-pop dance cover group. I volunteered to bring some baked goods to the event, including these cookies! These cookies are tiny, so most guests about two each.

Once you’ve made the cookie dough, roll the cookie dough into approximately 1 inch / rounded 1 tablespoon balls and place about 3 cm apart on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Then take your thumb (or the bottom of 1 tbsp) and indent the centre of the cookie.

Once your cookies are done baking and are cooling, turn your attention to the marshmallows. These marshmallows I found in store were approximately thumb-size, however too tall for my cookies. So I proceeded to take scissors and cut them in half to an appropriate size. Then I pressed the marshmallows into the center, and popped the cookies back in the oven for approximately 3 minutes. This allows the marshmallows to puff up. They also deflate and become a bit flatter once they are out of the oven.

While your cookies are cooling, you may start working on the chocolate drizzle! The chocolate is melted over a double boiler, which is a method used where you put on a boiling pot of hot water, place your chocolate in another bowl (or another smaller pot), and place the bowl with chocolate over the pot of boiling water. This gently melts the chocolate so you can drizzle it over your cookies. I used a sandwich bag to put the chocolate in. If you do not have piping tips, you may simply cut a very small hole. However I find piping tips allow you to somewhat control the direction of how you drizzle the chocolate.

Use a zig zag motion to created your desired effect. Allow the chocolate to completely cool or else you risk smudging your cookies!
