I found the cutest Chinese take out boxes at Michaels a few weeks ago and had to buy them! I knew they would make the perfect gift.  All I did to make this fun gift was add a piece of parchment paper, rolo cookies, twine (ribbon works great too) and a thank you sticker. Super easy and cute gift!


These rolo cookies are SUPER simple to make and are my new favorite indulgence.  Who wouldn’t love a little caramel surprise in the middle of a gooey chocolate chip cookie?! To make these use your favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe ( my fave: best chocolate chip cookies) and then stick a mini rolo in the middle. I used mini cupcake pans for something different, but you could also make regular cookies with the dough covering the rolo.

Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes and they’re done!

Now don’t you just want to take a bite?! ;)

Thanks for reading. Hope you’re having a great day!

    Sounded so yummy, my kiddos and I just made them tonight for Sneak-A-Peek at their school. We get to sneak in and meet thier new teachers for the year, see the classrooms and find out who their classmates will be. We had to try one before packaging them up and they are delicious!! Thank you so much for sharing this post!
