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!!!).
