Rolo Cookies (holiday baking #5!)

My 5th holiday baking post and final one! Have you checked out my previous ones?

These have been a tradition every year at Christmas time, because they are just so tasty.


I’m telling you, as soon as you start making these at Christmas (or any time of the year) it will become a crowd favourite!




  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 3/4 cup cocoa
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup pecans, finely chopped
  • 48 Rolos
  • 1 tbsp sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. In a small bowl, combine flour, cocoa, and baking soda. Mix well.
  3. In a large bowl, beat the sugars and butter until light and fluffy. Add vanilla and eggs; beat well. Add flour mixture; blend well. Stir in 1/2 cup of pecans.
  4. For each cookie, with floured hands, shape about 1 tbsp of dough around a Rolo, covering completely.
  5. In a small bowl, combine rest of pecans and 1 tbsp sugar. Press one side of each ball in pecan/sugar mixture. Place nut side up on un-greased cookie sheet, 2 inches apart.
  6. Bake 7-10 minutes or until set and slightly cracked.
  7. Cool on cookie sheet 2 minutes, then remove and cool completely on wire racks.
