A family favorite and always the first to go at bake sales. These cookies are soft and fudgy with warm caramel in the middle. Best served warm.

  • Mix flour, cocoa powder, and baking soda together in a small bowl. Beat 1 cup white sugar, brown sugar, and butter together in a large bowl until light and fluffy. Add vanilla extract and eggs; beat well. Stir flour mixture into sugar mixture; mix well.

  • Lightly flour hands. Shape about 1 tablespoon dough around 1 chocolate-covered caramel candy, covering it completely. Repeat with remaining dough and caramel candies.

  • Place 2 tablespoons white sugar in a small bowl. Press one side of each ball into sugar. Place balls, sugar sides up, onto a baking sheet, about 2 inches apart.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until cookie is set and slightly cracked, 7 to 10 minutes. Cool on the baking sheet for about 2 minutes. Transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.

  • Melt almond bark in a saucepan over low heat. Drizzle over cookies.

These were absolutely delicious!!! The only thing I changed about this recipe was that I didn't roll in sugar just before baking (forgot). We certainly didn't miss it though! These are soooo gooey just out of the oven but are just as yummy at room temperature. I will definitely be putting these on my Christmas cookie list this year! Read More

Amazing!! My daughter's allergic to nuts, so I melted the extra Rolos with a tablespoon of heavy cream and drizzled that on the warm cookies instead. Incredible!! Definitely a keeper! Read More

It's important to use natural baking cocoa like Hershey's rather than Dutch processed. The recipe calls for baking soda so you need to use the natural cocoa. Otherwise they will turn out dry and hard. I brought these to a Christmas party and they were chewy and delicious. I used natural cane sugar with the larger crystals. Read More

These cookies are awesome. I didn't drizzle the chocolate on top yet. I did however put sea salt on top instead of sugar. They turned out amazing both with and without the salt on top. I baked for 8 min and they were perfect. Read More

These came out great and we are in a baking contest to see if they will win. I didn't change anything about the recipe but I did do one batch with sea salt on top and one with sugar. Also use a small teaspoon to measure cookies not tablespoon. Read More

Great! A lot more fudgy/brownie like than I expected but I didn't mind because I love brownies more than cookies. Read More
