The basic shape of these cookies belies the sophisticated combination of flavors provided by chocolate-studded shells and delectably creamy chestnut centers.





Martha has also prepared this recipe by making the cookies smaller: Use a 1 1/4-inch ice cream scoop or a tablespoon. Drop dough onto baking sheets lined with Silpats and roll into 1 1/4-inch balls, spacing about 2 inches apart. Fill each thumbprint with 1/2 teaspoon creme de marrons. (You'll need 6 tablespoons of creme de marrons instead of 1/4 cup.)

    I don't understand how these don't have a higher rating. I've been making these every year for my Christmas party and they are always a huge hit. I do them with Nutella. Last year I decided to try a different cookie and there was a revolt. This year I'll go back to these. They are very easy and soooo yummy. I usually double the recipe because they don't make a lot.

    These are my favorite cookies to make with Nutella. I always make them for the holidays...and it's always #1 with kids. I love how this recipe doesn't need a lot of sugar, and enough chocolate :-).
