Renee's Kitchen:
Here is my new favorite cookie recipe. They are so yummy and will surprise anyone who bits into them. Also instead of Rolo's you could use Mini Snicker bars or Andie Mints or any other favorite candy bar that you think would work. These are even good if you just want a plan chocolate cookie. Just make sure that the piece of candy bar you use is not any bigger then a Rolo. These cookies are so yummy:)

Caramel-Filled Chocolate Cookies
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup baking cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 package (13 ounces) Rolo candies

    In a large mixing bowl, cream butter, 1 cup sugar and brown sugar. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. Combine the flour, cocoa and baking soda; gradually add to the creamed mixture, beating just until combined.
    Shape a tablespoonful of dough around each candy, forming a ball. In a small bowl, use either regular sugar or colored Christmas sugar and dip each cookie halfway in. Place suager side up 2 in. apart on greased baking sheets.
    Bake at 375° for 7-10 minutes or until tops are slightly cracked. Cool for 3 minutes before removing to wire racks to cool completely. Yield: about 5 dozen.
