Chocolate Chip Rolo Cookies

Monday nights are my favorite. I LOVE watching The Bachelor. Do you watch? I know it hardly ever works out. But I still look forward to watching. I must have a treat when I curl up on the couch to watch the show. These are my new favorite cookie. I love caramel...so that must be why. So next time you are curling up to watch your "guilty pleasure" make these!

Source: Key Ingredient

1 1/2 cups unsalted butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla
2 eggs
3 3/4 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped pecans, optional
Rolos (frozen)

Beat together butter, sugars, vanilla and eggs until fluff. Add in dry ingredients. Then add chocolate chips and nuts. Use cookie scoop to bake cookie dough balls. Then flatten with your hand. Place unwrapped Rolo into the center and roll back into ball. Once all cookies dough balls are made, put in fridge for about 15 minutes. Spray cookie sheet with cooking spray. Then add cookie dough balls. Bake at 350 for 11-13 minutes until lightly brown.

I tried these last night and they were fantastic! Until now, I hadn't found a chocolate chip cookie recipe I liked as well as my own. As a note: My first pan of cookies came out very flat with the candy running out the bottoms. I added an extra half cup flour and the rest came out perfect. My question is, do you spoon your flour into the measuring cups and level with a knife or scoop directly into the cups? I spooned the flour and leveled, so maybe that's the difference?

Hi Autumn,
I am glad you liked them!! I actually just scoop the flour without leveling. So some of my cups might actually have a little bit more flour in them. Maybe that was our difference. These cookies are way to addicting:)
