butter or margarine, softened
packed brown sugar
2 1/4 cups
unsweetened cocoa powder
chopped pecans, divided
chocolate-covered caramel candies
These cookies were delicious! The only thing I recommend is using 1.5-2 tablespoons dough to wrap around the candy (if you are using Rolos). If you use less the caramel tends to leak out the bottom.
I didn't really like these-- not very sweet and did not bond well with the people I served them to. Looked good, though.
It was easy to make and they turned out wonderfully. They look great and taste great. I followed the recipe exactly and it made 40 cookies! I was surprised. I used the smaller sized rolos though that you can buy in a bag so maybe I was using less dough? They look just as big as in the picture though. Freezing the rolos for an hour or so beforehand is a good idea - I did this and no caramel leaked out.
These are delicious! I have been making a similar recipe for years using a devils food cake mix. The best caramal candy to use is a Caramel Hershey's Kiss. It will be a much more gooey, soft center. Just use plenty of dough around it so it doesn't leak. It takes a few to practice, but they'll turn out great. I make them with and without pecans on top and they're always a hit!!
Everyone loved these cookies! It seemed like they would be too dry as I added all the flour and cocoa. Have faith and keep mixing -- they were moist and delicious.
very good cookies! The candy was a bit hard, but the cookie itself is very interesting. My kids loved them.
I made these tonight and they are wonderful! The pecans are really what make these, I made a batch without them for my hubby and I must say I like them better with them. These will definitely be the go-to cookie.
These are so yummy. My new favorite cookie! Super easy to make and would be great to do if you had a little one who likes to help bake! I used Caramel Hershey's Kisses and they turned out very moist and gooey in the middle. The hardest part was making sure my hubby didn't eat them all before they got to their intended destination.
