Chocolate Rolo Cookies

As promised, here is a homemade version of the Nestle Toll House Filled cookies. Plus the candy theme continues! This has a brownie-like flavor and texture and will make a great base for future chocolate cookie recipes. I made some cookies larger than others, and the smaller ones turned out much better (more flavor, better Rolo to cookie ratio).

Have you tried any filled cookies?

1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 egg
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
24 rolos (2 rolls)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cream butter and sugars until light and creamy. Add egg and mix. Gradually add in cocoa powder, flour, and baking soda.
Take one Rolo and press the dough around it to make a small ball. 
Bake for 12 minutes.
Yields 24 cookies.
