Rolo Cookies

If you ask the kids what treat they want brought into school for their birthday celebration, they always request Rolo cookies. It's a great recipe to make with the kids. As a matter of fact, I have made it a few times without kids and it's a pain! I have them unwrap all the rolos and help shape cookies and roll in sugar. They really do help a lot. These are best warm, as the carmel oozes out when you bite into them. But, they are good after they cool down as well.

1 c. butter
1 c. sugar
1 c. brown sugar
2 eggs
2 t. vanilla
2 1/2 c. flour
3/4 c. cocoa
1 t. baking soda
1 bag Rolo candies

Cream together butter, sugars, eggs & vanilla. Add flour, cocoa & baking soda and mix well. Take a ball of dough and place a Rolo inside. Cover it completely as you roll into a ball. Roll it in sugar to coat. Place cookies on a cookie sheet and bake for 7-9 minutes at 375 degrees. Make sure you do not over cook. Cool them on a wire rack only slightly, still keeping them warm when serving, if possible.
