Caramel-Stuffed Chocolate Cookies

Caramel Stuffed Chocolate Cookies

I love caramel.  I love it so much that I often always put a spoonful of caramel sauce into my coffee, followed by a spoonful of caramel sauce into my mouth.  It’s one of those things I just can’t keep around for fear of my uncontrollable urge to eat it all in one sitting.

These cookies were so amazingly delicious that before I knew it had happened, I had eaten three of them and they hadn’t even had time to cool.  Yes, I have a problem…and that’s why I happily gave them away to anyone who was willing to take them [an easy task].  The cookies had a great flavor and texture; they stayed pretty soft kept in an airtight container.  The rolos inside…well, that was the icing on the cake.  While they were still warm, the caramel was gooey, melty and a little messy; once they cooled, it was still soft and caramel-y, without the mess.

  • 6 Tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt

  • 1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 24 Rolos, unwrapped
  • coarse sea salt for sprinkling
  1. In a medium bowl, whisk flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt together.
  2. In a large bowl, beat butter for a minute, then add both sugars and beat until light and fluffy.  Add vanilla and eggs and beat until well incorporated.
  3. Slowly add dry ingredients and beat until combined.
  4. Chill dough in refrigerator for 30 minutes.
  5. Preheat oven to 375.

  2. omygosh Elise… I am a fellow caramel addict like you, and I cannot believe I survived looking through your delicious piccies without heading to the pantry in search of that gooey goodness! haha! This recipe is bookmarked! And will be resurrected as soon as like you, I have friends around to give these to once I bake them… otherwise all hell may break loose. lol

    • Caramel is dangerous when you’re an addict! 🙂 It is essential to my sanity that I do not bake goodies like this without planning for their immediate removal from my kitchen! The consequences are exactly that: all hell breaks loose…mostly on my thighs and a little on my aching stomach after I’ve devoured a dozen cookies in 5 minutes!
