Rolo Cookies



These are made by cooking a Rolo inside a chocolate cookie dough. On the outside it looks like a chocolate cookie. When you bite into it, you're surprised with chocolate and caramel.

  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1 cup sugar

  • 1 cup firmly packed brown sugar

  • 1 cup butter

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla

  • 2 eggs

  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans

  • 48 Rolo candies, unwrapped (9 ounce package)

  3. Add vanilla and eggs; beat well.

  4. Add flour mixture; blend well.

  5. Stir in pecans.
