Do you guys happen to like Rolos?
Or am I seriously alone in this one?
I think Rolos are good, not out of
this world good but none the less good.
Not good as in I would rather choose
to eat a rolo than a reese's peanut butter
cup per say but Rolo's have their own
thing going on.
I tell you what though... hide a rolo candy
in an incredible good chocolate cookie dough
and roll that in some pecan/sugar dust and
you have one of the best cookies you've
ever had. Don't believe me? Give them a try.
Surprise Rolo Cookies
- 2 1/4 c. flour
- 3/4 c. unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 t. baking soda
- 3/4 c. sugar + more for rolling
- 1 c. brown sugar (packed)
- 1 c. ( 2 sticks) margarine, softened
- 2 t. vanilla
- 2 eggs
- 48 Rolo candies
- 1 c. pecans, divided.
1. In small bowl combine first three
ingredients, blend well. In large bowl
beat sugars and butters until light and
fluffy. Add vanilla and eggs, beat well.
Pulverize 1/2 c. of pecans preferably in
food processor and add to the dough,
Refrigerate dough at least two hours or
up to 24 hours.
2. Heat oven to 375 degrees.
Crush other 1/2 c. of pecans finely and
in a small bowl combine them with 1/4 c.
of sugar. Press only one side of the
Rolo cookie into the sugar/pecan mixture.
Place cookies, nut side up, 2 inches apart
on parchment covered cookie sheets.
3. Bake for 7-10 minutes or until set
and slightly cracked. Cool and enjoy!
With floured hands, shape about 1 T. dough
around one Rolo, covering it completely.
