For the cookies:

For rolling:


  • Preheat oven to 375ºF (190ºC). Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, using a hand-held mixer or a stand mixer with paddle attachment, cream together the butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until combined. Beat in the egg and vanilla until smooth.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and slowly mix until combined.
  • Measure about 1 tablespoon of dough and wrap around a Rolo candy into a ball shape. Repeat with remaining dough and Rolo candies.
  • In a small bowl, combine the granulated sugar and crushed pecans. Roll each dough ball in the mixture until coated on all sides. Place dough balls on the prepared baking sheets.
  • Bake for 8 - 10 minutes until set and slightly cracked. Allow cookies to cool on the tray for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool slightly before serving.


These Rolo Cookies will stay fresh stored at room temperature in an airtight container for up to a week. You can also freeze the cookies after baking them and they will be good for up to three months.
