Rolo Cookies

These are a sweet treat with a nice surprise in the centre.

1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup butter or margarine
2 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
2 1/2 cups flour
3/4 cup cocoa
1 tsp baking soda
Rolo candies (approximately 2-3 rolls - or more)

Sugar Dip (optional)
1/2 cup finely chopped pecans
1 tbsp white sugar

Mix together 1 cup sugar, brown sugar and butter. Add vanilla and eggs and mix well.

In a separate bowl, combine flour, cocoa and baking soda. Mix well and add to the sugar mixture. Stir in 1/2 cup of pecans, if using.

Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour.

Preheat oven to 375F. Mix 1/2 cup pecans and 1 tbsp white sugar. Shape approximately 1 tsp of dough around 1 Rolo piece and cover Rolo completely. Press one side of ball into the sugar/pecan mixture (if using) and place on baking sheet, nut-side up.

Bake for 7-10 minutes. Cool 2 minutes

Warning: the Rolos can sometimes "leak" out ... but they're still G-O-O-D!

I have made these and they are awesome. Sometimes I melt caramel and drizzle it over the tops of the cookies....just to pretty them up a bit
