Chocolate Chip ROLO Cheesecake Muffins

It seems I’m a little late getting on the chocolate chip cheesecake bandwagon, but I’m so glad I hopped aboard. The Rolo melts down into the cookie crust to give you a chewy caramel cookie crust. To. Die. For.

If you don’t want to bake these up into muffins, you can certainly make a pan of them, and cut them into slices. Whatever works!

  • 1 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 cup mini chocolate chips

For the Filling:

  • 24 Rolo candies (I used minis, but regular would work too)

  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs

  4. Remove cookies from oven, press one rolo into each crust, lightly. Scoop cheesecake mixture over each crust. Drop bits of reserved cookie dough over cheesecake. Bake in 350 degree oven for about 25 minutes more.
  5. Remove, cool and store covered in refrigerator. ENJOY!

  14. I made no-bake Rolo Cheesecake parfaits about 4 weeks ago and then I made cookie-in-muffin tins right after that…I need to make these now b/c they to die for! Love the ooey-gooey factor going on & the Rolos!

  15. Unfortunately, I know I’m only adding my voice to a chorus here, but I simply can’t recommend this Cruzer because half of what it purports to do–arguably the more important half–it doesn’t really do. The only reason its not perfect is that my cat still drops some litter on the floor on the way out. see the migration

  24. Aimee – I’m making these this week with full-size Rolos and my Pick Your Plum cupcake holders. I want to be just like you 🙂

  25. “Meanwhile, in mixer, beat cream cheese with sugar, eggs and vanilla.”
    BUT the filling is listed as:
    ” For the Filling: 24 Rolo candies (I used minis, but regular would work too) 2 pkg (8oz each) cream cheese, softened 3/4 cup sugar 1 tsp vanilla extract”

    Eggs are not listed for the filling. Please clarify! Thanks!

  26. Are you kidding me??? Holy key-rap. I’m speechless. Rolos are my favorite! And why have I not seen the mini ones yet?! Now I’m on a mission!!!

  27. Pinned! They look fabulous. Rolos are one of my most favorite candies too. Thanks so much for linking up at Weekend Potluck.

  28. Aimee, these sound delicious. I love muffins and the addition of rolos will make a good thing perfect. Have a wonderful day. Blessings…Mary

  33. You can roll a Rolo, please tell me you remember the old commercial! l love Rolos, love caramel! Great idea adding them to cheesecake! These are awesome! Love to new look of your blog!

  34. Oh. My. God. Rolos are one of the fruits of the earth. And with cookies? And cheesecake? My head is exploding.

  35. Rolos!! They’re so addictive–dangerously so (especially the already-unwrapped ones!) Putting them into cheesecake muffins makes them even more awesome.

  36. I made no-bake Rolo Cheesecake parfaits about 4 weeks ago and then I made cookie-in-muffin tins right after that…I need to make these now b/c they to die for! Love the ooey-gooey factor going on & the Rolos!

And I love that they come unwrapped now, but that might just be the lazy side of me coming out:-) These muffins are totally calling my name. All the things I love in one delicious bite sized treat!!! YUM!!!

    I love your new blog header…so cute:-)
