I love these rolo cookies! I made them for a church gathering and they were a big hit!!! I can't get enough of them. I found the recipe on sisterscafe.blogspot.com.
2 1/2 C. all purpose flour
3/4 C. unsweetened cocoa
1 tsp. baking soda
1 C. sugar
1 C. firmly packed brown sugar
1 C. softened butter
2 tsp. vanilla
1 C. chopped pecans
48 Rolo, unwrapped 9 oz. pkg.
1 Tbs. sugar
4 oz. vanilla flavored candy coating (I used guittard vanilla chocolate chips)
Heat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly spoon flour into measuring cup and level off. In a small bowl, combine four, cocoa and baking soda; blend well.
In a large bowl, beat 1 cup sugar, brown sugar and butter until light. Add vanilla and eggs; beat well. Add flour mixture, blend well. Stir in 1/2 Cup of the pecans.
Form each cookie with floured hands, shape about 1 tablespoonful dough around 1 Rolo, covering completely.
In a small bowl, combine remaining 1/2 pecans and 1 tablespoon sugar. Press one side of each ball into pecan mixture. Place nut side up, 2" apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake at 375 degrees for 7 to 10 minutes or until set and slightly cracked. Cool 2 min. Remove from cookie sheet to cool on wire rack. Melt the vanilla flavored candy coating in a saucepan or in a baggie in the microwave. Drizzle over cookies.
