Rolo Cookies

This is similar to the Snicker Cookies that I make- except that it's a chocolate cookie with a Rolo caramel candy inside. Yummy!

1 cup butter or margarine
1 1/4 cups sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 large eggs
2 t vanilla
2 1/4 cups flour
3/4 cup cocoa
1 t baking soda
40 Rolo candies

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In mixing bowl, beat butter, 1 cup granulated sugar and brown sugar until light and creamy. Beat in eggs and vanilla until batter is smooth. In another bowl, combine flour, cocoa and baking soda. Stir into sugar-egg mixture to form soft dough. Chill dough in fridge at least 1 hour. Place 1 T of dough in palm of hand and press into a flat circle. Put 1 Rolo candy into center and bring up sides of dough to cover it completely. Roll between palms to make a smooth ball. Place remaining sugar on a plate and roll each ball in sugar. Place on greased baking sheet and bake cookies for 10 minutes or until tops are cracked and firm. Cool on rack about 10 minutes.

TIP OF THE DAY: Don't try to rush getting them off of the cookie sheets or they will stick like GLUE and tear your cookies UP! (Trust me on this, I learned the hard way!)
