Chocolate Cake Mix Rolo Cookies

Chocolate Cake Mix Rolo Cookies
I saw this recipe on Pinterest and had to try it – they looked too easy and too good not to. So I made them Saturday morning for Mike to bring to work (after I had some of course). The recipe which I found on this site: http://bunsinmyoven.com/2011/08/08/rolo-cake-mix-cookies/ consists of:

1 package of chocolate devils food cake mix
1/3 cup oil
2 eggs
24 Rolos

I bought two packs of Rolos, which equaled 20 Rolos, so I used four Caramilk Easter eggs that I had leftover for the remainder.

You simple stir all the oil, eggs and mix together then create individual ball, slightly smaller than a golf ball, flatten them in your hand. Put a Rolo in the middle fold over smoosh into a cookie size and place on a cookie sheet covered with parchment. 

I wasn’t convinced my stirring with a spoon was evenly distributing the ingredients so I tried a whisk – but the batter was too thick. I got out my hand mixer and used that. I am not sure if that over beat them but they did rise quite a bit, but when they cooled they sank back down. Another thing – the dough was so sticky, in the end I was just running a little water on my hands to form the balls – this might be because I over mixed it.

Once you have made your 24 cookies bake them at 350 degrees for 9 minutes. Let cool and then use a spatula to remove them from the pan so the Rolo doesn’t stick to the pan.

In the end they were a good cookie. Easy to make. And its neat that it came from a cake mix. Enjoy!
