This is my new favorite cookie recipe. If the chocolate cookie part wasn't good enough, you then bite into a creamy chocolate caramel surprise! Even better, I taught my kids how to unwrap the rolos, flatten out a piece of dough, stick the rolo in the middle, wrap it up into a ball, and roll it in sugar. S I kicked back and watched tv while they went to work.
Rolo Cookies from The Sister's Dish
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup butter or margarine (I use butter)
2 t. vanilla
1 t baking soda
2 1/2 cups flour
3/4 cup cocoa
13 oz. bag of Rolos
sugar (for rolling the pre-baked cookies in)
Directions: Blend sugar, brown sugar and butter together in a bowl. Add eggs and vanilla to sugar mixture and blend well. Sift together in a small bowl, flour, cocoa, and baking soda. Add flour mixture to sugar mixture and blend well. Take a spoonful of cookie dough and wrap around rolo. Roll into ball so that the rolo is completely covered with dough and roll in sugar. Bake at 375 degrees for 7-10 minutes.
