Rolo Cookies

Rolo Cookies. Do I really need to explain anything more in order to get your attention? I didn’t think so. However, I really have a lot to say about these amazing cookies. You will likely be salivating at the end and will need to try these as soon as possible.

If you have never had or heard of a Rolo, you need to take my advice and try a bag. Notice how I said bag? Because you will not want to stop at 1 Rolo. They are pretty small after all. In all seriousness, they are a bite size chocolate that surrounds a dollop of caramel inside of it. Sound great? It is.

Now, imagine having this delicious candy INSIDE of a soft chocolate cookie. Is your mouth starting to water just a little? You know what happens when you cook the chocolate cookies with a Rolo inside, right? The caramel goodness squishes out into the cookie. So when you take a bite of the cookie, you get a soft caramel-y center. Umm, umm. Are you drooling right now? I am!

Ingredients Needed

  • 1 box Brownie Mix
  • 2 Eggs
  • 3 tbsp Flour
  • 1/3 cup Powdered Sugar
  • 1/4 cup Vegetable Oil
  • 36 Rolos

Easy To Make

Not only will your kids love these Rolo cookies, but they are easy to make. Kids will be able to help you make them and will actually be helpful doing so. They can undo the Rolo wrappers – huge time saver. Additionally, they can help roll the cookie dough around each Rolo. Finally, they will love rolling the cookie dough balls around in the powdered sugar.

The worst part about this recipe is that once you have the dough made, you need to put it in the refrigerator for 30 – 60 minutes. I know it’s not that long, but when you are DYING for the yummy goodness of melted caramel and chocolate inside a soft, yet crunchy chocolate cookie, trust me, that half hour to an hour seems like an eternity. Even though the wait is brutal, make sure you wait until the dough is firm. Otherwise, the cookies won’t keep their shape around the Rolos. Thus, the waiting is a vital step in this recipe. Trust me, it will be worth it.
