Rolo Cookies

A sinfully delicious brownie-like cookie with an irresistible rolo center.

2 1/2 cups flour
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup butter (softened)
2 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
5 packages of Rolos
1/4 cup granulated sugar

In a small bowl, combine flour, cocoa and baking soda. Blend well. In a large bowl, beat sugar, brown sugar and butter until fluffy. Add vanilla and eggs; beat well. Add flour mixture and blend well. Chill the dough for at least 2 hrs then work with 1/4 at a time. Shape 1 heaping teaspoon of dough around 1 Rolo completely covering it. Put sugar in a small bowl and roll each ball of dough in the sugar. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 7-10 mins, until set and slightly cracked. Cool 5 mins on sheet and remove.

Oh my. Words can’t describe how good these cookies are. Just look at this.

Excuse me while I wipe the drool off my face.

Anyway, Cole had the best time helping me make these. I was surprised how good he was at covering the rolos with the dough. It can be a little tricky but he did such a great job. I gave some of them to the ladies who work our boys’ daycare, and they were raving about them when I picked the kids up today. I’m planning to make them for a cookie exchange this Christmas. They’re a perfect holiday treat, or a treat for any time at all, really.
