Caramel Filled Chocolate Cookies

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

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

2 eggs

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.
