There was a sweet seminary student in Vernal who made these cookies for the teachers and my hunny loved them so much she shared the recipe with us. They are really yummy!
2 1/2 cups flour
3/4 cup cocoa
1 tsp. baking soda
1 cup margarine
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
9 oz. bag of Rolo candy ( 48 rolos)
Combine flour, cocoa, and soda in a small bowl. In large bowl, beat sugars, and margarine until light and fluffy. Add vanilla and eggs to sugar/butter mixture, beat well. Add flour mixture, blend well. Stir in 1/2 cup of chopped pecans (optional).
Shape 1 Tbsp of dough around one Rolo candy, covering completely. Put 1 Tbsp of sugar in small bowl and roll cookie ball around until covered with sugar. Place on ungreased cookie sheet 2 inches apart.
Bake at 375 for 7-10 minutes. (they are better undercooked than overcooked)
After a day or so, if there are any left over, we love to put them in the microwave for a few seconds to warm them up again. Good, Good!
