Oh yeah! These are sooo good! And not as difficult as it may sound... After a little practice I realized I didn't need flour for rolling the dough around the candy. I scooped dough with my small 1 1/4 inch cookie scoop, which was the perfect size. I didn't use any nuts, but pressed the top of the little dough balls into chocolate sprinkles. I actually got 6 dozen cookies! But there were only 56 Rolos in the package.. so I added Heath pieces to the remaining dough! Both are delicious! This is a nice dough to work with! Without the Rolo in the center, the cookies are flatter but stay chewy.
Made for my Christmas cookie baskets. Big hit with my kids!
Just plain awesome cookies right here! Kids went nuts for these. The cookie jar was empty in no time! Next time I will double the recipe and there WILL be a next time! Into my favorites it goes so I don't lose it.
