Hands down, these are some of the best cookies I’ve made. The secret? Rolos hidden inside! They remind me of Annie’s Magic in the Middles, but instead of peanut butter, there’s caramel packed inside of the chocolatey goodness. Definitely give these a try…and SHARE!
Chocolate Caramel Cookies
2 1/2 cups flour
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup butter, softened
2 teaspoons vanilla
30-36 chocolate-covered caramel candies (Rolos)
2 tablespoons sugar
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
In a large mixing bowl, add sugar, brown sugar, butter, eggs and vanilla. Mix together until well blended. Add flour, cocoa and baking soda and mix well. Refrigerate and chill dough for 30 minutes.
Roll dough into 1 inch balls (I used a small cookie dough scoop for this to keep the size of the cookies uniform) and place 1 chocolate-covered caramel candy in the center of each dough ball. Form the dough ball around the majority of the chocolate-covered caramel candy. Roll each dough ball in sugar.
Place on ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 7-10 minutes. Let cool on pan for 1 minute then take off and place on cookie cooling rack.
