These Gingerbread Chocolate Thumbprint Christmas cookies are soft and chewy with the perfect hint of chocolate!

I totally LOVE Christmas time and each of the exercises that accompany it. I’m not generally a very remarkable dough puncher, yet I make an exemption at Christmas and love attempting new occasion plans. Today I needed to share these gingerbread chocolate thumbprint treats with you that I adjusted from the Purdy’s list.

The treats can be put away in an impermeable compartment in the cooler for as long as multi week or can be frozen. Spot material paper over top of the treats in case you are stacking them as the chocolate blend doesn’t totally solidify. For a pleasant bundling thought, head on over to Clean and Scentsible and figure out how to make these gingerbread trimmings. They are ideally suited for enhancing or adding to gifts!
