Rolo Cookie Bars are filled with Rolo candies. Chocolate caramel indulgence.
Do you guys have those certain food items that simply cannot be in your presence due to the fact that you’ll shove them into your face at breakneck speed? Yeah, Rolos are one of those items for me. Within a matter of minutes, I’ll find myself in a sugar coma with chocolate-coated fingertips surrounded by a sea of gold foil wrappers. It’s a problem.
I’m a total sucker for anything with the word caramel in it, and the fact that Rolos are also super cute and tiny definitely doesn’t help matters.
Since I lack any sort of self-control when in the presence of those little bites of caramel bliss, I rarely purchase them - unless of course I’m using them for recipe development. In which case it’s totally acceptable because it’s all in the name of research. I’m that dedicated, guys.
I’ve been on a cookie bar kick lately and since you might already know that I love stuffing candy into baked goods, Rolo cookie bars seemed totally natural. I mean I’ve already stuffed them into chocolate chip cookies and cupcakes, so why not cookie bars, right?
The beauty of baking cookie bars is that they are truly no-fuss. Ya toss everything into a bowl, mix it up and about 20 minutes later you have ooey-gooey cookie bars filled with caramel candies.
You can cut them into squares, use a cookie cutter for circular shapes, or create fun cookies sticks that are perfect for dunking into an ice-cold glass of milk. And if you’re feeling a little fancy-schmancy, go ahead drizzle them with a little melted chocolate or caramel – or both, because why the heck not? It honestly doesn’t get much easier or delicious.
