Hazelnut Rolo Cookies

Decadent. That describes these cookies. I’ve had this recipe (from Pillsbury) for many, many years. This is the first time I added the hazelnuts and nutella though. I’m so glad I did too.

I had my helper, Cassidy, working hard in the kitchen with me. She not only added all the ingredients to the mixer, she also unwrapped all the Rolos. A task I hate. But she worked on her counting too, we needed 48 Rolos for this recipe!

Enjoy with a glass of milk. Yum.

Rolo Cookies Recipe:
(adapted slightly from Pillsbury)

1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup margarine
2 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
2½ cup flour
¾ cup cocoa
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup chopped hazelnuts, divided
48 Rolos
1 Tbsp sugar
1/2 cup Nutella, melted
Combine sugars and margarine. Beat until fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla. Blend. Add flour, cocoa, baking soda and ½ cup hazelnuts. Cover with plastic wrap and freeze one hour.
Wrap 1 heaping tablespoon of dough around one Rolo. Cover Rolo completely. Combine ½ cup hazelnuts with sugar in small bowl. Press top of cookie into nut/sugar mixture. Place dipped side up and bake in a 375 degree oven for 7-10 minutes. When cool, melt Nutella in microwave and pour into a small ziploc bag. Cut the corner off the bag and drizzle over cookies. Refrigerate until set. Store in covered container. Enjoy!!
