Rolo cookies {fun gift idea}


Thanks for stopping by! To get the newest recipes subscribe or join us on facebook.

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!
