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.

Be careful not to over-mix or else you will end up with hard cookies.

Scoop out about 1 tablespoon of the dough and mold it around a Rolo candy into the shape of a ball.

Step 7:
Roll the ball in a bowl of sprinkles or sugar and press gently to flatten it a little.
