One day I was out with some friends for our annual "lunch date" and we were in a book store looking through the cookbook section. I came across a cookbook all about chocolate (lets be honest - had to have it) and in it was a recipe for cookies with Rolos in them! I got all excited and was like "I must have this cookbook!" I didn't buy it that day :( But it stayed in my mind, haunting me, making me sad I never bought it. My birthday rolled around and my amazing friend that was in the bookstore with me that day and her husband bought me that cookbook! I couldn't of thanked Aud and Mike enough - it was one of the best presents ever. And of course one of the first things I made was that recipe.
I do follow a couple of baking feeds online and one of my favorites is My Baking Addiction (you should really check her out and follow her if you dont - great stuff on there). One day she posted a recipe with cookies with Rolos in them. I immediately printed it out and made the cookies the next day. It quickly became my new favorite cookie - chocolate and a Rolo in the middle and then cover the tops of the cookies with caramel - yes please!
So my sister, we will call her Heay on here, has a co-worker who also shares my love of Rolos. I made him the first type of cookie and he wasn't really a fan of it. So I said ok, we will make the other kind. Because of my injury it takes me twice as long to make things, mainly because I do everything left handed and Im a righty (and of course its my right hand thats injured). So when I bake I need to set aside a good part of the day to bake. Something that used to take me an hour now takes me at least two. Thankfully we have a stand mixer, that I LOVE, otherwise I couldn't bake at all.
The worst thing about this recipe for me is that there is a lot of things to do with both hands. Like you have to unwrap a whole bag of Rolos.
|Yes - a whole bag fits nicely in a large bowl|
|a nice comfy home of chocolate dough|
|Ok - so some of them aren't pretty looking but they |
all bake and end up looking good
Delicious! Im sure that Heay's co-worker will like these. And if he doesn't, then I give up.
