Gooey Rolo Cookies Recipe

Gooey Rolo Cookies Recipe on { lilluna.com } So soft and chocolatey! Made with chocolate cake mix, powdered sugar, cream cheese, and a rolo in the middle!!

It’s happened before…

I thought I was being semi-genius and tried a new recipe I never had seen before only to find out that others have tried it too. Don’t you hate when that happens? Well, I’ve decided it doesn’t matter because everyone makes a recipe in different ways, and although I thought this next creation was a Lil’ Luna original, it still is in my book, lol!!

One of our favorite family cookies is our Ooey Gooey Butter Cookies. They are so delish and easy to make. I decided I wanted to do a chocolate version and to mix things up I decided to add a Rolo to the middle – cuz, who doesn’t love ROLOS, right?! The end result was amazing!! I made them for a family function a few months back and they were a hit. They are now my younger brother’s favorite cookies, so he is always putting in a personal request for them. I call them: Ooey Gooey Chocolate Rolo Cookies…
