    Rolo Cookies

    Remember the cookies I showed you on Sunday? I made them last night. They are unbelievably easy. And tasty. They were a huge hit at the baby shower last week, so it’s a nice easy recipe to add to your entertaining repertoire.

    I got the recipe from my friend Mindy Nielson, who got the recipe from someone else, who got it from someone get the drift!
    Serves: 30
    • 1 box Devils' Food cake mix
    • 2 eggs
    • ⅓ cup oil
    • 20 - 30 Rolo candies, depending on how small you make the cookies (30 is a good number to target)
    1. Mix the first three ingredients together (I used my hand blender) and then roll into little balls with 1 Rolo inside each ball (Mindy tries to make them as small as possible to maximize the Rolo to dough ratio, which is smart). Bake at 350 for 9 minutes. Makes about 30.
    2. Jane sidenote: when I made them, I ended up with 22 cookies...and Mindy is right about the ratio thing, next time I'll try to make them a little smaller. 30 cookies should be your target.
