Chocolate Rolo Cookies

These cookies are a BIG hit with ANY crowd. Delish!

350 degree oven, 10 minutes cooking time. Makes about 50 cookies.

1 C. Butter or Margarine
1 ¼ C. Sugar (divided)
1 C. Brown Sugar
2 Eggs
2 t. Vanilla
2 ¼ C. Flour
¾ C. Cocoa Powder
1 t. Baking Soda
1 Bag of Rolo Candies unwrapped (For best results, freeze Rolos beforehand.)

In bowl, beat butter, 1 C. of the sugar and brown sugar. Add eggs and vanilla and mix till batter is smooth.
In another bowl, combine flour, cocoa and baking soda.
Stir flour mixture into sugar-egg mixture to form soft dough.
Chill dough in fridge at least 1 hour. Place 1 T. dough in palm of hand and press flat. Place a rolo in center of dough and bring up sides of rolo until completely covered. Roll between palms to make a smooth ball, then roll ball in remaining ¼ C. sugar and place on greased cookie sheet.
Bake cookies in a preheated 350 degree oven for 10 minutes or until tops are cracked and firm.
Cool on pan for 10 minutes before moving to a cooling rack.

These sound so good. I've going to have to try them, as we are a rolo-loving family!

Hey, I just wanted to add that I made these cookies and brought them up to Tim's parents' house on the 4th of July when our sister-in-law Rebecca and her family were there. Everyone loved them and they didn't last long. I even gave out the recipe. Yummy!
