Yay! I’m so excited for this post. I’m going to share one of my family’s all-time favorite recipes.

Ooey gooey deliciously easy Rolo cookies.

Don’t get me wrong, I will never stop loving the plain ole chocolate chip, but if you ever want a simple recipe with a little extra chocolatey caramel zing, you have to try these!

First step, make the cookie dough. I used my all-time favorite cookie dough recipe here, and just left out the chocolate chips.

Ok, so now you have your finished cookie dough, and your Rolos. Pretty simple thus far, right?

Next, grab a medium sized ball of cookie dough.

Cover the Rolo in the cookie dough.

It’s so easy, my 3 year old rolled all of them. She felt like such a big girl. :)

    Looks good! If you don't want to unwrap the Rolos, buy the tubes of Rolos with the regular size candy bars (usually by the register) instead of a bag.

    I've made similar cookies to these for years - except my cookie dough is chocolate! My family loves them -- especially when they are warm!

    These are also so yummy when made with a chocolate cookie too - which is just a devils food cake mix, eggs and oil. These are so easy to make!!!
