Oh, these cookies.
These cookies are delicious. I only make them at Christmas and I’m not really sure why. They aren’t a particularly Christmas-y cookie and they are definitely good enough (and easy enough) to make any random day. Clearly I am going to have to make them again soon, since I only ate ONE this year. I gave the rest away in goodie tins. I should have saved a couple more.
Chocolate Caramel Cookies

3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
48 Rolos candy
1) Beat butter until creamy. Add sugars and beat well. Add eggs and vanilla and mix.
3) Combine flour, baking soda, and cocoa. Gradually add to butter mixture and combine well. Cover and chill 2 hours.
4) Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Divide dough into four parts, then divide each part into 12 pieces. Press a piece of dough around a rolo and roll into a ball.
5) Dip into sugar mix. Place cookies 2 inches apart and bake 8 minutes.
