Ooey gooey caramel surrounded by fudgey chocolate. . . Yes please!
This wonderful little find came from a friend of mine who likes to keep her baking simple.
These are SO simple my 5 year old made them. While I was busy snapping photos she had all the cookies rolled up and ready to bake. They aren't just simple either, they are SO.GOOD.
Yup. . . a Rolo.
Okay so this is what you need:
1 Chocolate cake mix
1/3 C oil
4 rolls of Rolos, or 1 bag
(I prefer to find the rolls, then I don't have to unwrap them all)
Place the cake mix in a bowl. Add eggs and oil. Stir until combined.
Pinch off a one inch ball of dough.
Now smash it flat in your hand.
Place a Rolo in the center of your dough
Now roll the dough into a ball around the Rolo.
Place on a greased cookie sheet and bake at 350 for 6-7 minutes. If you over bake them they will be hard and less fudgey. 7 minutes is plenty long.
You can sprinkle them with powdered sugar, or not. Just depends on your level of fancy!
These cookies were used to garnish our chocolate mousse cups. (Which is another super easy super insanely delicious recipe you just have to try.)
This recipe came from my always fabulous sister in law Laura. She ALWAYS has the most amazing ideas. I've made this mousse so many times, it always hits the spot!
1 large pckg chocolate pudding
(use jello brand, it just works better)
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 c water
1 C whipping cream, whipped (can use cool whip or pastry pride)
Combine pudding, condensed milk and water in a mixing bowl. Wisk until smooth. Let set in fridge for 5 minutes. Whip cream with an electric mixer. Fold whipped cream into pudding mixture. It's ready!
The possibilities are endless. It can be piped (via ziploc bag) into cups, on top of cupcakes, into a Graham cracker crust (ooh, or Oreo crust). See where I'm going here, it is that good. Let me know how you enjoyed your mousse!
