  • Preparation Time:


  • 2 1/2 C flour
  • 3/4 C unsweetened cocoa
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 C sugar
  • 1 C brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 1 C butter
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 48 Rolo candies
  • 1 C walnuts or pecans, chopped
  • 1 TBLS sugar
  • cooking spray


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

  • In a large bowl beat 1 C sugar, brown sugar & butter until light & fluffy.
  • Add vanilla & eggs. Beat well.
  • Add Flour mixture. Blend well.
  • Combine nuts & remaining sugar in a small bowl.
  • Spray hands with cookie spray - this is a sticky dough.
  • Gently wrap 1 TBLS cookie dough completely around 1 Rolo candy.
  • Try to handle the dough as little as possible (if that makes sense) Gentle handling and cooking spray will help keep dough from accumulating on your hands.
  • Roll ball in nut mixture.

  • Enjoy!


These showed up in my mom's Christmas cookie line up when my sister and I were teenagers. Now they're in mine too. People gobble these up. You can also make them ahead of time and freeze them. They thaw nicely and keep their taste & consistency.
