What You’ll Need

Ingredient Notes

  • Egg + egg yolk- These act as binders, and the extra yolk brings extra fat, resulting in a super chewy cookie.
  • Unsweetened cocoa powder- This will make the cookies extra chocolaty. Use unsweetened because these Rolo Cookies are sweet enough already.
  • Butter- Use unsalted butter and allow it to come to room temperature for the best chewy texture.
  • Rolos- Unwrap these delicious chocolates filled with caramel for the cookie centers.

Add-ins and Substitutions

  • Make them gluten-free- Substitute the flour with all-purpose gluten-free baking flour, 1:1, for a gluten-free version of these cookies.
  • Use premade cookie dough- Save time by placing a rolo in the center of refrigerated cookie dough that has been rolled into a ball and bake.
  • Add mint- Transform these Rolo Cookies into chocolate mint by adding a little mint extract.
  • Substitute other candies- Instead of Rolos, make them with mini Snickers, mini Reese’s, or Hershey’s Kisses.

How to Make Rolo Cookies

  • Cream the butter and sugars together. In a large bowl, combine the softened butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar. Use an electric hand mixer to thoroughly mix everything on medium-high speed.
  • Add the other wet ingredients. Add the egg, egg yolk, and vanilla extract. Mix until well combined.

Pro Tip: Start mixing the dry ingredients on low speed to prevent them from flying everywhere.

  • Sift in the dry ingredients. Using a fine-mesh sieve, sift in the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix together.
  • Scoop the dough. Use a medium-sized cookie scoop to create and roll balls of the cookie dough.
  • Add the Rolo. Press an unwrapped Rolo candy into the center and evenly mold the chocolate cookie dough around it.
  • Dust with sugar. Roll the candy-stuffed cookie ball in a bowl of sugar.
  • Bake. Place the prepared cookie dough on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Allow the cookies to cool slightly before serving.

Recipe Tips

  • Sift the dry ingredients- This ensures thorough mixing of the dry ingredients and eliminates any clumps that could dry out your cookies.
  • Wrap the dough around the candy evenly- Ensure that the cookie dough is evenly wrapped around the Rolo candy to prevent it from melting and seeping out the sides.
  • Roll the dough into a ball- These cookies will flatten quite a bit, so it’s important to bake them as candy-filled dough balls.
  • Rolo Cookies are sweet and rich, made of chewy chocolate cookie and gooey caramel. Here’s how to make them.

    Let the cookies cool slightly before serving since the caramel could be quite hot.

    **FAQs**

    **Do you need baking soda for cookies?**
    While you can make cookies without it, baking soda is a leavening agent that gives cookies fluffiness. These Rolo Cookies spread, but they also rise just enough to give them a cushion to wrap around the candy.

    **What is the key to chewy cookies?**
    Chewy cookies are made when there is the right proportion of wet and dry ingredients, as well as enough fat. In this recipe for Rolo cookies, we add an extra egg yolk to give the dough the necessary fat to create chewy, moist cookies.

    **Serving Suggestions**

    These scrumptious Rolo Cookies are the perfect combination of chocolate and caramel. Serve them with other cookies, chocolate desserts, cakes, and other sweet treats.

    – **Cookies:** Serve these alongside some Chewy Nutella Cookies, Chewy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies, Chewy M&M Cookies, or Monster Cookies.
    – **Chocolates:** Pair these Rolo Cookies with Chocolate Creme Brulee, Chocolate Lava Cake (Video), Chocolate Bark, or Chocolate Covered Dates.
    – **Cakes:** Enjoy them with a slice of Chocolate Mousse Cake, Tiramisu Recipe (VIDEO), New York Style Cheesecake, or Gingerbread Cake.
    – **Sweet treats:** Enjoy these cookies with some Apricot Rugelach (VIDEO), Candied Pecans, Peppermint Bark (VIDEO), or Hot Chocolate Bombs.

    **Make This Recipe in Advance**

    **Make ahead:** These cookies store well and can be made a few days before serving. You can also store the cookie dough in the fridge for a day or two before scooping, adding the Rolos, and baking.

    **Storing:** Store these Rolo Cookies at room temperature for up to 3 days in an airtight container.

    **Freeze:** You can freeze these cookies in a freezer-safe container or bag for up to 3 months.
