“What could be better than a chocolate cookie that has a melted Rolo candy inside?!”
52 cookies

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (It's important to make sure the oven is preheated to 350°). The cookies should be done in exactly 10 minutes.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine flour, cocoa powder, and baking soda; mix well.
  3. In a large bowl, beat the sugars and butter until light and fluffy.
  4. Add vanilla and eggs; beat well.
  5. Add flour mixture; blend well.
  6. Stir in 1/2 cup of the chopped nuts.
  7. For each cookie, weigh out 3/4 ounce of dough (approximately 1 tablespoon) and shape around a Rolo, covering completely.
  8. In a small bowl, combine rest of nuts and 1 tablespoon of sugar.
  9. Roll unbaked cookie in nut/sugar mixture. Place on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet, 2 inches apart.
  10. Bake 10 minutes or until set and slightly cracked. DO NOT OVERBAKE.
  11. Cool on cookie sheet 2 minutes, then remove and cool completely on wire racks.
  12. Note: I get exactly 52 cookies--this leaves 2 Rolo candies to eat.
