Rolo Stuffed Chocolate Cookies

YUM is the first word that comes to mind when I look at these cookies! Let’s face it; any cookie stuffed with caramel has got to be a winner. If you happen to be a Rolo fan this treat is right up your alley.

Except for the candy itself, you probably already have all of these cookie-making ingredients in your pantry. The recipe is just a basic chocolate cookie with a rich and gooey surprise inside… perfect for when you’re craving something sweet. Seriously, I dare you to eat just one!

I was surprised to learn that Rolos have actually been around since 1937. Who knew, right? They were introduced in the UK by a company called Mackintosh’s. Before that, the same company was well known for their toffee treats. Rolo was a “spinoff” version of one of them.

Mackintosh’s eventually granted license to the New England Confectionery Company, which produced the Rolo brand in the United States. As of 1969, the Hershey Company took over production.

If you’re a Rolo aficionado, chances are you’re somewhat aware of all of the recipes that call for the candy. Performing a search will no doubt bring up ice cream options, muffin recipes, Rolo-infused yogurt, cookies (of course) and a whole lot more. And, don’t forget the now-famous McDonald’s Rolo McFlurry!

This particular candy is perfect for stuffing into cookies because of the way the caramel oozes when melted. It makes me think that popping one in a cup of steaming hot chocolate might result in the combination of chocolate and caramel goodness.

Do you give gifts of baked goods during the holidays? If so, why not whip up several batches of these to add to your goodie baskets? In this case, it’s always thoughtful to include the recipe so your family and friends can bake these yummy Rolo-stuffed chocolate cookies whenever their hearts desire
