Want a chewy, gooey caramely, decadent chocolate treat? These cookies are so good, they were about 20 years in the making after all!
They are kind of like a cross between a brownie and a soft gooey chocolate cookie with a Rolo (caramel chocolate) baked in the centre. I started playing around with this cookie approximately 20 years ago, I was in university and
was a nerd needed to get my mind off school work and also needed a really good study snack. That is what all 19 year old uni students do for fun right?
The first couple of versions were to runny and the caramel leaked all over the place, then it was too thin, cooked too long and was just too hard and chewy. I think after many trials, many cookies eaten, this is a keeper.
4 pkgs Rolo
1/2 cup butter softened to room temperature
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup cocoa
1 cup flour
Cream butter and sugar, add in cocoa and mix until incorporated, then beat in 1 egg.
Add flour and continue to beat on low speed until it is mixed in and the batter is sort of a play-doh consistency
Pinch off a piece of dough, flatten it a little
This is where the Rolo comes in, add Rolo to it, fold the dough over the rolo
once the role is inside the dough it looks like this, do this with the remaining and place on a cookies sheet lined with parchment. I found they baked best on parchment. Bake at 350 for about 10 minutes.
Once they are baked they are like brownie cookies but with a surprise center
Delicious gooey caramel and melted chocolate
You will definitely need a glass of milk
