Today I’m telling you about a “cookie” I often make around Christmas time. I make them in mini muffin tins. I don’t know why I don’t make them more often. I think the main reason is that I forget to buy Rolo candies and they are one of the main ingredients in these cookies.
Last year at Christmas time I had bought Rolos with the intention of making these. Then I got sick and was on the diet so couldn’t eat them…so I didn’t make them. The other day I saw the Rolos in the cabinet and thought I better get those used up as they had been here since Christmas.
To make them I start out with my brownie recipe. I’m sure you can use a box mix of brownies but I learned long ago that we all prefer my homemade brownie recipe to box brownies and they are super quick to mix up too.
Here’s the recipe:
2 cups sugar
2 sticks of softened butter
2 teaspoons of vanilla
1/2 cup cocoa
2 cups flour
I mix the first four ingredients together and then add the cocoa and flour.
The recipe is about as user-friendly as they come. The dough ends up looking like this…Pretty thick.
I use a small tablespoon-sized scoop and put plopped the dough into mini muffing tins.
I put them in the over at…350 degrees. Then after ten minutes opened a pack of Rolos and stuffed one rolo candy into each brownie muffin.
I popped them into the oven for a few more minutes. Then took them out of the oven.
They will look like this…
Let them cool for about 20 minutes before taking them out of the tins. Then take a knife and run it around the outer edge of the circle.
These are so good. Everyone always loves them.
If you try them, let me know. I do know one thing for sure. I’m going to go write Rolos on the grocery list right after I’m done writing this blog post because I don’t want to wait all the way to Christmas to have these again.
