Chocolate Rolo Cookies

On word: Pinterest.

Please tell me you all are on there??? It’s the. bomb. Find me HERE.

Anyhow, I have ALWAYS been a fan of chocolate & caramel (i’ll take that over chocolate and peanut butter ANY day). So, when I saw these cookies by Six Sisters popping up everywhere on Pinterest, i KNEW i had to make them. Well, my sister in-law Heather got around to making them first and brought them to my house.

Oh. my. gosh.

I pretty much ate the whole plate in 2 days (a couple for breakfast… a couple after lunch… and hey why not a couple for dessert? Perhaps it was the PMS talking? haha)

Anyhow, I made them again recently because I was seriously craving them and well… this happened as they were coming out of the oven:

ARGH!!! If you follow me on Instagram (another social media addiction of mine!!!), I’m sure you saw this a couple weeks ago…

Well, due to this incident – I had to revert back to my old camera/lens and I was pretty worked up about the catastrophe that had just happened. So, you’ll have to excuse the mediocre rushed photos. I just snapped a couple of shots and then had a full. on. melt. down. haha

Whatevs – life rolls on… my camera was fixed (hooray!) but my favorite lens (50 mm) was TOAST. Guess I have something for my b-day wishlist now! Come on July 6th!!! 😉

Do yourselves a favor and go make these cookies (they are TOO easy not to!)…

Oh, and be sure to eat them while they are still warm (WOWZA! Hello there gooey melty chocolate and caramel!!!).

    I was obsessed with Rolo’s as a kid. My brother would always buy them and not share and I would have to sneak into his room later when he wasn’t around and steal one or two. I think I’m going to have make these babies and wave a plateful of these in front of his face. Haha!

    They look absolutely sensational. I love Rolos but this would just take the flavour to a different level!

    Sorry about the camera lens but the photos still look great with the old one! And yes, I’ll be sure to make these cookies and then eat the entire batch by myself 🙂

    That picture of your camera and lens makes me want to cry. BUT these cookies turn the whole situation around. Rolos are always a good idea!

    At least the meltdown came with a side of chocolate rolo cookies!! That would make it a little easier to handle! Hope the camera can be repaired! :-/

    I pinned these a few days ago and can’t stop looking at them! I was thinking about adding them to my Christmas cookie rotation, but I don’t think I’m going to be able to wait that long!
