Chocolate chip cookies with Rolo centre

Yesterday I made cookies for the first time and they're so good (if I do say so myself). I went for chocolate chip but I used smashed up Dairy Milk as it tastes better than chocolate chips and a gooey caramel centre with a Rolo. Yum!
They were super easy to make and took no time to bake, they came out quite large too which is fine by me. I'd definitely make them again (just to eat the cookie dough!)

Rolo cookie recipe

Ingredients (makes around 7 large cookies)

110g butter
200g soft light brown sugar
1 egg
2 drops of vanilla extract
165g plain flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1 Dairy Milk bar
1 pack of Rolo's


  1. Preheat the oven to 190c or gas mark 5 and line two baking trays with baking paper.
  2. Cream the butter and sugar together until combined.
  3. Stir in the egg and vanilla and mix well until it's all combined.
  4. Add the flour, baking powder and bicarb and mix until it looks like a stiff dough (at this point I had to add more flour to make it stiffer).
  5. Add the smashed up Dairy Milk (it should be smashed to look like chocolate chips) and mix.
  6. Divide the mixture into 7 balls, rolling them in your hand. Gently flatten out the ball in your hands and put a Rolo to the centre then roll the dough back into a ball and place on the baking trays.
  7. Bake for 10-12 minutes. The cookies will be very soft put as they cool they will harden up so don't overcook them!
These are best eaten warm so they chocolate is soft and the caramel is gooey. Perfection in cookie form.
