Chocolate & Pecan Cookies with a Surprise Inside

No, I haven't gone mad and put beetroot or aubergine in my cookies! Although, hey, that may be something to try, well the beetroot anyway! These actually have a rolo in the middle. Hence, a lovely gooey centre. Mmmmmmm.


These gorgeous, chewy cookies are the brainchild of Fruittart.

I wish now, that I had broken a cookie in half for you to see the oozing centre, but luckily Fruittart had the foresight to do this, so you can always have a look at her cookies.

These cookies were lush and it was fun molding the cookie dough around the rolo. Very theraputic! I will definitely be making them again soon :)

  2. Sounds truly yummy! Candy inside a cookie - yep, yummy! Unfortunately, you probably had to wait for them to cool a bit, in order not to burn your mouth. Oh, well - sacrifice. ;)

  6. These sound totally decadent and delicious! Love Rolos, so I'm sure they'd be great in a cookie. (Oh, and what's wrong with eggplant in cookies --??).

    PS Thanks for your comment re: the Mosaic salad--I think watermelon would be a HUGE improvement (in fact, now I want to try it that way!!). :)

  8. I am trying to Romina!

    You are just as bad as Graham, Davimack, no patience! Good things come to those who wait!

    Hi Tadmack,I found clay frustrating, maybe I will make you cookies for no trade!

    They were yummy Val, I took most of these to work, so we wouldn't over-indulge!

    This is a first for me Silvie, as I am just getting into cookies, but it is my favourite so far!

    Wow Ricki, I bow down to your superior knowledge and stand corrected!

    The watermelon would be good in your salad wouldn't it?

    Hi Wendy, you have something there! Were you famous five, secret seven or malory towers?

  12. Hi Nicisme, what were you expecting exactly? You don't trust me then ;)

    Hiya Pia, that chocolate cake sounds good, bet it is moist!

    Hey Silvia, it was the wine that did it, wasn't it?

    I never had that one! The first one I had was Mr Pinkwhistle! Now that was a story! I might have to take the Magic Faraway Tree out from the library now!

  22. Hi Judy, These were a welcome return to rolos for me. I hadn't had any for years.

    They were great Fruit Tart. Thank you so much for the recipe!

    Hi Patricia, these are real good you have to try them!

    Hi Kevin, you can credit Fruit Tart for that clever idea. It worked really well!

    Hi David, just send me your address :)

    Hi Vicarious Foodie, I really liked the pecans in these and I have some left, so a good excuse to make more cookies!

    Hey Lisa, I know you are too good a girl to eat more than one of these :)

  26. I love rolos!

    But I have been totally distracted from the original post by the mention of Toffee Pops from the magic faraway tree - that brings back memories!

  27. I never did read that story, so I am lost with the reference Kittie, but I am quite happy if they make everyone nostalgic!
