Directions

  1. Beat butter or margarine, peanut butter, 1/2 cup granulated sugar and brown sugar together until fluffy. Beat in egg. Sift flour and baking powder together; stir into butter mixture. Chill dough thoroughly, 2 to 3 hours.
  2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  3. Roll dough into 1-inch balls. Press a chocolate-covered caramel into the middle of each ball. Roll dough around it. Roll each ball in granulated sugar. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 10 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool 2-3 minutes, then remove from cookie sheets.

I've seen this recipe published in assorted magazines using a mini Snickers in the center in place of a Rollo, er "chocolate covered caramel candy". I decided to give this recipe a shot and add a photo/review as it was lacking both. The dough came together quite easily in my KA and I chilled the dough for a few hours. The dough was easy to work with, though I found it best to grab some dough, flatten it in my palm, then wrap it around the Rollo, pinching off any excess before rolling it into a smooth ball. These took 10 minutes for me and yielded 49 cookies for me. They were a hit with Mr. LTH's bandmates. THANKS for the recipe, Pellie!

Made these as part of a Christmas platter and they were a huge hit. This recipe doesn't need any real changes, however I didn't think the cookie looked finished so I drizzled a little dark chocolate over the tops to get rid of the brown blob appearance. These were a big hit.

I made these with bite size Snickers because that is what I had on hand. They turned out amazingly delish. The recipe is easy to follow and the dough perfect to work with. Thank you.

Very good! I loved it! My family couldnt stop eating it. Although I put 1/2 cup more flour in and refrigerated it for 30 min.

Delicious! I used mini Rolos for the center. Make sure there are no cracks or it will leak out.

I made these for my families Christmas cookie platter this year and these disappeared first. This was really easy recipe and that was a big hit for a picky family.
