Rolo Chocolate Cookies

These brownie-like Rolo chocolate cookies are crispy on the outside but soft and fudgy on the inside. Really easy to make and great for gift giving too!

I LOVEEEEEE Rolo candies and can finish a bag in just an hour BUT yesterday, they were put to good use in these Rolo chocolate cookies.

I have used Rolo candies before to make these fun Rolo chocolate spiders and even sprinkly Rolo chocolate monsters.

But, I think they taste the BEST when they are stuffed in chocolate cookies.

Their ooey gooey caramel center just makes me SWOON!

My Mom makes these cookies, every time I visit Canada.

She rolls them in sugar but I like to roll them in sprinkles coz sprinkles just make me HAPPY 🙂

These cookies are CRISPY and CRUNCHY on the outside and really SOFT and FUDGY on the inside.

They kinda taste like brownies with crispy tops!

So, you can just imagine how INCREDIBLE they must taste?! 😛
