Chocolate Caramel Cookies

Today's a reunion of some sorts. I get to see some of my friends that I havent seen in like 3 weeks! =]

Well we're getting pho and I always seem to bring along with me when I go out and get lunch with friends. This time I decided on a chocolate caramel cookie that Danny - one of them that I was meeting up with - wanted.


It's a really simple recipe which I decided to halve since I didn't have enough ingredients.
Recipe for chocolate caramel cookies
[taken from here]
1/2 cup butter (no substitutes), softened
1 cup sugar
1 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract [I used two!]
1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup and 2 tablespoons baking cocoa
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 (13 ounce) package Rolo candies [I found these rolls of Rolo candies at a store, they had approx 24 total in them]

In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar.
Add the egg and vanilla; mix well.
Combine flour, cocoa and baking soda; add to the creamed mixture and beat just until combined.
Shape dough by tablespoonfuls around each candy.
Bake at 375 degrees F for about 10 minutes or until top is slightly cracked. Cool for 3 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.

Note: you may have to watch the cookies because if they crack too much the caramel will flow out. This happened to me a couple of times.


Even my little brother loved it!
