Did I happen to mention the excess of Rolos we had after Christmas? This was another attempt to use up more Rolos and also give them out as porch treats (see what that is here) and they were quite tasty (even though I only got one!).
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
2/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup cocoa
2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons milk, if needed (my dough was really dry so I had to add some milk to get it to mix together so you may or may not need it)
1 Heat oven to 350. Line baking sheets with parchment.
2 Beat butter, sugar, and cocoa until creamy. In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt. Gradually add to butter mixture until combined, using milk if needed.
3 Roll dough into 1 1/2″ balls and place on baking sheets. Press thumb into center of each ball to make an indentation. Place a Rolo into each thumbprint.
4 Bake 10 -15 minutes or until Rolos start leaking caramel.
