Cake Mix Cookies Continued.... with Caramel this time!

Since we're on a 'cake mix cookie' kick here, let's go a step farther and try caramel! This one is similar to a cookie recipe that Moms and Grandma's have been making for years using Rolo Caramel Candies only this one cheats (a little bit) and uses a cake mix as the base. Quick and easy but oh so tasty!

When you get the dough formed around the candy center you can dip the tops into crushed nuts or you can also wait until they are cooled and top them with a little swirl of frosting.

Chocolate Caramel Cookies

1 devil's food cake mix
1 egg
1/4 c water
3 T vegetable oil
38 Rolo (caramel) candies

In a bowl, combine the cake mix, egg, water and oil; mix well. Either use your hands and a spoon to make cookies into round balls or use a cookie dough scoop. Press a candy into each; reshape balls around the candy in the center. Place on ungreased baking sheets lined with parchment paper if you have it. Bake at 350' for 8-10 minutes or until tops are cracked. Cool for 2 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely.Print Friendly and PDF
