Chocolate Rolo Cookies – Soft and fudgy chocolate cookies with gooey caramel and plenty of chocolate. Super easy to make, chewy and delicious.

It doesn’t matter what time of year it is, cookies area good idea! And when you add caramel it takes them to a whole new level. These use instant pudding in the dough to make them super soft and chewy. If you have never tried that trick before you are definitely missing out!

You can use flavored puddings to give your cookies a whole different spin like these Butterscotch Pudding Cookies!

What You’ll Need

  • Butter
  • Brown Sugar
  • Granulated Sugar
  • Instant Chocolate Pudding
  • Eggs
  • Vanilla Extract
  • Cocoa Powder
  • All-Purpose Flour
  • Baking Soda
  • Salt

These are very similar to a classic chocolate chip cookie, just a chocolate base with caramel. Thick, chewy, soft and delicious and if you eat it warm out of the oven the gooey caramel is incredible.

How To Make Chocolate Rolo Cookies

  1. The first thing to do is cream together the butter, brown sugar, and sugar until fluffy. This can take about 2 minutes, so just be patient.
  2. Add pudding mix, eggs, and vanilla, mix until well combined and the eggs are fully incorporated
  3. In a separate bowl mix together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt. Then slowly add the flour mixture to the dough.
  4. Once it is just combined, use a spatula to fold in the chocolate chips chips and chopped Rolo candies.
  5. Let dough sit in the fridge for 30 minutes before baking. This just helps the cookies stay nice and thick while you bake them.
  6. Scoop small balls of dough onto the baking sheet. Bake for 9 minutes, or until the edge are set and the tops look dry.
  7. Remove from the oven, and let sit for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

Storage

You can store these cookies for 3-4 days in an airtight container at room temperature.

Freezing – you can freeze the already baked cookies for up to 3 months. Or you can freeze the balls of dough (after they are filled) for up to 3 months, and then just bake when you want them.

If you are baking frozen dough, I like to take out the balls of dough and let them sit on the counter while the oven preheats. Then just add about 1 minute to the baking time. But then you can have fresh warm cookies on demand any night of the week!

  1. I have fond memories of Rolo’s and adore cookies. The combination of these two with the chocolate pudding sound perfect. I’ve made a few cookie recipes using pudding and they always turn out fantastic. I saved these to my ZipList and will be sure to make them.

  2. Your choco pudding rolo cookies have grabbed my attention 😉 Isn’t it great to pull out a tray of fresh home baked cookies out of the oven..I know the answer to that one 😉

  3. Booooo! BOO!

    I’ve been dying to make those butterscotch pudding cookies but haven’t been able to because I forgot to pick up some butterscotch pudding mix in the US. Boooo.

    Lol. What a stupid comment.

    Love the cookies! 😀
