Rolo Crinkle Cookies

If you did not already know this about me, it probably would not take you long to figure out, but I am a Big chocolate fan. When I say big I mean chocolate chip Eggo waffles every day of elementary school-big, and a screen name of “Chocolate.lover.218” in middle school-Big. (whaaaat?) Anyways, some how, despite my adoration for chocolate, my first experience with the Rolo was not until last summer!  I had a Rolo McFlurry, and from there was hooked. I was ready to put Rolos in everything!

This cookie recipe is the perfect blend of chocolate and caramel all wrapped up in a surprise Rolo center.  The caramel makes for a perfect gooey middle encased in delectable chocolate. What more could one ever want?

Ingredients:

  • 2 ½ cups flour
  • ¾ cup cocoa
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 Cup granulated sugar
  • 1 Cup softened butter (2 sticks)
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 48 Rolo candies (1 bag)
  • Powdered sugar for rolling

Directions:

  1. Cream butter and sugars with a mixer in a large bowl.
  2. Add eggs and then vanilla.  Mix well.
  3. Next add dry ingredients:  baking soda, cocoa, and flour. Mix.
  4. Chill dough.
  5. When ready to cook, preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  6. Form balls with Rolo candy enclosed in the middle.
  7. Roll cookie ball in powdered sugar.
  8. Bake on a lined or greased baking sheet for 7-10 minutes depending on how small your cookies are.  For smaller cookies only bake 7 minutes.
  9. Store in airtight container.   May freeze for a month.
