Chocolate! Rolo Stuffed! Crinkle Cookies! I am so excited to share this insanely delicious cookie recipe with you from the Baker’s Royale cookbook.These chocolate caramel filled cookies are pure decadence and pure cookie perfection.
The cookies are slightly chewy, rich and chocolaty, and stuffed with a Rolo so that when you take a bite, there’s a beautiful soft caramel filling in the center.
I thought they’d be hard to make, but nope, the batter and process of making these chocolate Rolo stuffed crinkle cookies is actually quite easy.
So, confession time: I have a serious love of cookies.
You know how some people have a love of pizza and say things like “no pizza is bad pizza” even though you know that there is such a thing as bad pizza? I’m like that, but with cookies.
I love all cookies. There’s no such thing as a bad cookie. I mean yes, I’d probably take a bite of a bad cookie and think “that could have been better” but overall, I just love cookies.
Then there are those cookies that just rise above the rest. It’s memorable. When you think of “cookies” you think of that cookie.
This is one of those cookies.
Honestly, I’d say it’s top 5 cookies I’ve ever eaten, let alone made!
From the moment I tried them, I was hooked. They’re beautiful and they’re delicious. I will be making and bringing these to parties in the future, a lot.
It’s no surprise that these chocolate caramel filled crinkle cookies come from Naomi Robinson’s cookbook Baker’s Royale: 75 Twists On All Your Favorite Sweets.
Naomi is the super talented creator behind the blog BakersRoyale. Every time I’ve taken any kind of food photography workshop, when the presenter gets to the part where they talk about photography inspiration, one of Naomi’s photos are shown. And with reason! Her photography & styling is absolutely stunning. Her cookbook is full of beautiful photography and delicious sweet recipes. I’ve made several and they’re all winners.
Next time you’re need of a truly outstanding cookie, I’d highly recommend making a batch of these chocolate Rolo filled crinkle cookies!

Chocolate Rolo Stuffed Crinkle Cookies Recipe
- 1 cup 120 g all purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon instant espresso powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 6 tablespoons 86 g unsalted butter
- 2/3 60 g unsweetened cocoa powder sifted
- 1 1/2 cups 300 g light brown sugar
- 2 large eggs at room temperature
- 18 to 20 Rolos candies one per cookie
- 1/2 cup 59 g confectioners' sugar, sifted
- Preheat the oven to 350 F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, espresso powder, and salt. Set aside.
- Melt the butter in medium saucepan over medium heat or in microwave-safe bowl in 20 second increments.
- Whisk in the cocoa powder and brown sugar. Whisk in the eggs thoroughly, one at a time.
- Add the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Scoop out 2 tablespoons of cookie dough rounds and use your hands to roll into a ball, then flatten to 1/4 inch (6mm) thick. Add a Rolo candy to the center and wrap the dough up around the candy. Roll this into an even ball, then roll it into the confectioner sugar until heavily coated. Repeat with remaining dough and candy.
- Place the cookies 2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheets. Bake in preheated oven for 8 to 10 minutes, until the cookies look crinkly and spread slightly.
- Allow the cookies to sit on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool briefly. Make sure to serve warm to get the gooey caramel.
