Hidden Rolo Cookies Recipe


This recipe is extremely easy and was a huge hit with family and friends alike! At first I thought it would be extremely rich with the butter, sugar and Rolos combined, but it was the perfect meld! Just the right combination of sweet. Definitely add the finely chopped pecans also!



Hidden Rolo Cookies Recipe


  • 48 ROLO® Chewy Caramels in Milk Chocolate
  • 1 cup butter 2 sticks, softened
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup finely chopped nuts optional
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar for rolling
  • Additional ROLO® Chewy Caramels in Milk Chocolate optional


  1. Heat oven to 360°F. Remove wrappers from caramels.
  2. Beat butter, granulated sugar and vanilla in large bowl until well blended. Gradually mix in flour and nuts, if desired. Knead mixture until it holds together and can be pressed into a ball. Roll mixture into 48 (about 1-1/4 inch) balls. Flatten each ball slightly; press around one caramel, covering completely. Place on ungreased cookie sheet.
  3. Bake 12 to 14 minutes or until cookies are set but not browned. Cool slightly; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely. Roll in powdered sugar or drizzle with additional melted caramel candies, if desired. Makes 48 cookies.
