Rolo Cookies

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,
incorporate well.
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.
