These cookies were brought to the Cookie Swap party by Laura. They are really great, simple cookies with a fun caramel surprise center. It's a favorite among both kids and adults!
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup softened butter (2 sticks)
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 1/2 cups flour
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
1 teaspoon baking soda
48 rolo candies
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In a large bowl mix sugars and butter until light and fluffy. Add vanilla and eggs, beat well. In a small bowl mix flour, cocoa and baking soda. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix until combined well. Cover batter with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes for easier handling.
For each cookie, roll just enough dough to cover a rolo completely in the batter. Sprinkle sugar on each ball of dough and place cookie balls 1 inch apart on a cookie sheet. Bake for 7 minutes.
