  1. Found this recipe for a last minute late night bake session for cookie exchange party. They’re in the oven now! They look delicious!

  2. Oh my gosh. Where have these recipes been my whole life? Super easy. The mix is like mushy sand. Roll a rolo into it, bake and enjoy! They look like soft baked cookies. I will be using variations of this recipe for Christmas cookie trays. Thanks for simplifying my life!

  3. So I made these today. Was a hot mess. Super sticky so oiled my hands. Didnโ€™t help much. To get 4 dozen at one inch size you canโ€™t even get that much dough around a Rolo or do you have some mystical super small Roloโ€™s? Even after cooled theyโ€™re still soft and extremely moist cookies but taste good all the same. Got just under two dozen if I covered the Roloโ€™s per instructions.
    I do believe my issue with extra gooey is due to not using standard chocolate cake and I used super moist like in your pic which in turn gave me a very liquid like dough instead of standard type though

    1. Hi Timmee. We get 4 dozen with mini Rolos or 2 dozen with regular sized Rolos. Let us know if you try them with standard cake mix, we haven’t had a problem with the super moist thus far. Glad they were yummy in the end!! xo

  4. I bought devil’s food cake. Will that work or does it have to be the chocolate fudge one. Thanks!

  5. I made the Rolo chocolate cookies SO GOOD!!really impressed going to make these for cookie party

  6. This recipe was NOT easy. I have never in my life had to work with such sticky “cookie dough” before. I followed all the ingredients and instructions to a T and something still didn’t seem right. I looked back the recipe multiple times and couldnt figure out why the mixture was so sticky.
    Once I finally got the mixture rolled into balls (with great difficulty), I followed the the baking instructions. Once I took the cookies out and allowed them to cool, they were all completely stuck to the pan, despite the fact the instructions said to use an ungreased cookie sheet. Apologies for my rant but I was very disappointed and won’t be following this recipe again.

    1. Hot dang, Jade! That sounds like a disaster, so sorry! I’ve never had a problem with them! They’re definitnely sticky since they’re a cake mix cookie but nothing a little oil couldn’t solve. Send me your address and I’ll send you some…they’re so good ๐Ÿ˜€

    1. Hi Joyce, the recipe is in the post but here you are (:

      Ingredients:
      1 box of chocolate cake mix
      1/3 cup oil
      2 eggs
      Rolo candies

      Directions:
      Heat to 350.
      Combine cake mix, oil and eggs. Blend well.
      Place a Rolo in the center of a piece of cookie dough, fold the dough in a ball around the Rolo.
      *use oil, may be sticky
      Place on greased cookie sheet 2โ€ณ apart.
      Bake 8-10 minutes.
      Cool 1 minute and remove from cookie sheet. (Makes 2 dozen cookies)

  7. Attempted to make these and learned that Devil’s Cake does NOT equal chocolate cake!!!
    Ended up with a lot of runny cookies… Added some flour, but the bottoms weren’t thick enough!

    Also the dough was wwwaaayyyy too sticky to handle.

    Want to try it the right way with chocolate cake mix.
    Would not recommend Devil’s cake mix.
    They were still pretty good though.

  8. To those who have tried this: Wouldn’t they taste more cakey than cookie-y?? If not I’m all over these!

  9. I love these! Have you had luck freezing them? Any tips on how to wrap them for freezing or is that unnecessary? Thanks for the recipe.

  10. We tried this recipe and our batter was sticky, wouldn’t even release from mixer beaters. Have we done anything wrong?

    1. Hi Madison! We’ve never had a problem with it :/ So sorry! Just mix the dry cake mix with the wet ingredients and it should work!!

    2. I wouldn’t bother with a mixer. I got in there with my hands after I did what I could with my spoon. My batter was more like a loose sugar cookie dough. Are you sure you used the right amount of oil?

  11. I made these one year for a cookie exchange but did NOT read the directions entirely. I bought those hard caramels and made them and they were delicious. HOWEVER, when they cooled off the middle was hard as a rock! I had no time to remake so I had to include a waiver that no one would sue me if they had to make a trip to the dentist for a broken tooth. We warmed them up with about 10 seconds on the microwave and saved our choppers!

    1. Haha… oh, I mean OOPS! Darn it! Yes, ROLO’s are the way to go… smooth creamy caramel that doesn’t harden! (; Thanks for sharing your oops!!

  12. Wow this is a quicker way than my rolo recipe! I’m for sure going to try it. Thanks!

  13. What a great idea! You could put just about any mini=candy bar inside, too. Like Snickers! or Reese’s.

  14. Shut UP!
