Sylvia Gabriel's Chocolate Rolo cookies

250 ml (1 cup) white sugar

250 (1 cup) brown sugar

2 eggs

10 ml (2 tsp) vanilla

175 ml (3/4 cup) cocoa

625 ml (2 1/2 cups) all-purpose flour

5 ml (1 tsp) baking soda

about 48 Rolo pieces


Preheat oven to 175C (350F). Line cookie sheets with parchment paper. In a large bowl, cream butter or margarine, sugars, eggs and vanilla until creamy. Stir in cocoa. In a small bowl, whisk together flour and baking soda. Add flour mixture to butter mixture and stir until combined. Take about 1 tablespoon of dough and place Rolo piece in centre. Roll into a ball that covers the Rolo piece. Place cookies on prepared sheets, leaving 5 cm (2 in) between cookies. Bake for about 7-8 minutes, watching carefully. Yields about 4 dozen.

Tester's notes: A chocolatey cookie with a caramel surprise, this will be a hit with kids. Because the Rolo could melt a little, I lined the cookie sheets with parchment paper.
