Rolo Cookies

1 c. butter
1 c. sugar
1 c. brown sugar
2 eggs
3/4 c. cocoa
1 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. vanilla
2 1/2 c. flour
1 bag Rolos

Let your kids unwrap the Rolos for you.

I made a double batch in these pictures, so there were a lot. By the end, I was giving them each 5 at a time and having a race to see who could unwrap them first.

Combine butter, sugar, eggs, and remaining ingredients, except for the Rolos of course.

Roll dough around Rolo to make small ball. They will be fairly large, about inch and half in diameter. Roll in sugar.

Bake at 350 for 6-8 minutes. When they come out of the oven, they will still be rather round and tall.

Drop pan to flatten and spread the melted Rolo through cookie. Sometimes even after I do this I have to use my spatula to whack them and flatten a little bit. Let them cool on pan.

Obviously these taste best while still warm so the inside is melted, but they are still good when cooled. After they cool you can microwave for a few seconds to melt the inside.

A friend of mine made these for us a few years ago and gave me the recipe but I have still never made them. They were so good- I think we might have to go buy some rolos and make them now!

Oh. My. These have to be one of my favorite cookies of all time. My mom always made them using a boxed cake mix, but I knew I always wanted to try them from scratch! Thanks for the recipe, they look scrumptious!!!
