Chocolate Caramel Cookies

These are one of Zach's favorite cookies and a must-bake at Christmas every year.  They are fabulous right out of the oven and still amazing when cooled.  I think I found the original recipe on a few years ago now.

Chocolate Caramel Cookies

1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 1/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/3 cup cocoa powder
Several tablespoons sugar (for rolling)
1 regular size bag of Rolo candies

  • Cream together the butter, sugar and brown sugar.
  • Add eggs and vanilla.  Beat until light and fluffy.
  • Combine dry ingredients in separate bowl.
  • Gradually add dry ingredients to wet while mixing.  Beat well, until combined.
  • Chill dough 2 hours.
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Unwrap Rolo candies.
  • Take a heaping tablespoon of dough and flatten out, put one Rolo in center and then form dough into a ball around candy.
  • Roll balls in sugar, place on cookie sheet.
  • Bake 8 minutes.
