Directions

  1. For the candies, Dove with caramel are good.
  2. Beat butter until creamy. Gradually beat in white sugar and brown sugar. Beat in eggs and vanilla.
  3. Combine flour, baking soda, and cocoa. Gradually add to butter mixture, beating well. Stir in 1/2 cup walnuts.
  4. Cover and chill at least 2 hours.
  5. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  6. Combine remaining 1/2 cup nuts with the 1 tablespoon sugar. Divide the dough into 4 parts. Work with one part at a time, leaving the remainder in the refrigerator until needed. Divide each part into 12 pieces. Quickly press each piece of dough around a chocolate covered caramel. Roll into a ball.
  7. Dip the tops into the sugar mixture.
  8. Place sugar side up, 2 inches apart on greased baking sheets.
  9. Bake for 8 minutes in the preheated oven.
  10. Let cool for 3 to 4 minutes on the baking sheets before removing to wire racks to cool completely.

I found this recipe 12 years ago in a magazine. I'm making my "post holiday" cookies now and I couldn't find where I put my recipe! Thanks, Loveleesmile, for posting it here! Now I'll always have it. These cookies are fantastic. I find the bottoms to be a little too soft for gifting so I cut the Rollo candies in half. Then I form the dough around just half of a Rollo. I also skip the walnuts and I don't roll the tops of the cookie dough balls in sugar before baking. These cookies are delish enough. They don't need the walnuts or the extra sugar.
