There is nothing quite like these chocolate raspberry thumbprint cookies. They are naturally flavored and colored with freeze dried raspberries and topped with a sweet Valentine chocolate.
I wasn't planning on making another Valentine's Day related posts. In an ideal world, I would plan things out further ahead and make more really incredible recipes to celebrate the day. This year my daughter is very interested in "Love Day" and begged me to make a few Love Day cookies. I'm a sucker for a request for cookies, especially when it comes from that little girl. So, I decided to make her some cookies.
I really loved how the raspberry macarons looked with the color from the raspberry powder so I decided to try it again to see how it would turn out in another cookie.
Oh my gosh, it is fantastic!
The raspberries give the cookies this really amazing color (you can also make them a bit more vibrant with a drop or two of food coloring if you want). Plus the cookies are so packed with flavor, it's amazing.
The raspberry thumbprint cookies are soft and melt in your mouth and if you eat them when they are still a little warm and the chocolate is still a little melty. Oh my gosh, hold me back because I will eat them all at once. I will even go as far as to recommend warming up the cookies ever so slightly to get that melty goodness. Not to say it isn't good as-is because it is. It's just that melty chocolate is so good.
Happy Valentine's Day, my friends! Go make some raspberry thumbprint cookies. 😉
