I am not exaggerating when I say these Chocolate Espresso Thumbprints are EPIC. I mean, I don’t want to toot my own horn but I’m totally going to on this one because it is so good. Literally everyone who has had them (I practically gave them out to my entire family for taste testing, a task they are more than happy to fulfill) has told me how amazing they are.

The best part? They are kosher for Passover. That’s the Jewish holiday where we don’t eat any leavened bread or wheat products (among many other things, depending on strict you are). Obviously, the holiday has a much deeper meaning than just not eating bread – but I’m good at explaining food stuff so I’m just gonna stick to that.

Many people will talk about how deprived they feel on Pesach (Passover), especially those who don’t buy any processed food. So I like to think of these Chocolate Espresso Thumbprints as a bit of a cure for that – they 100% kosher for Passover, can be easily made, and absolutely delicious – and bonus points for how nourishing they are! Chock full of healthy fats, protein, fiber, and lots of nutrients. A winner all around! Give it a try. I included step by step pictures on how to make them as well in order to visually simplify it for you – hope you enjoy!
