In the midst of all the cookie recipes out there, I found this little gem and wanted to share it with you. These Rolo cookies are not just lovely to look at, but have a surprise center of ooey-gooey chocolate and caramel.
The recipe I’m sharing would be great for the holidays, (it makes 50+ cookies) however these Rolo Cookies can be enjoyed any time of the year!
The process of getting a piece of Rolo candy inside a cookie isn’t as hard as I thought it would be. I rolled a medium/smallish ball of dough in my hand and pushed that candy right down inside it. I then ‘smooshed’ the dough over the end of the candy and rolled it in my hand again. It perfectly encased the candy in a nice round dough ball. After a couple of tries, I was scooping out just the right amount of cookie dough to completely cover the chocolate candy. Don’t make the coating too thin, or the candy may burst out and ooze caramel all over your cookie sheet. (Ask me how I know…)
