Rolo Stuffed Peanut Butter Cookies

I know you'll forgive me for going AWOL once you see these marvelous cookies.

Pure peanut butter bliss stuffed with ooey gooey rolos. Peanut butter, caramel, and chocolate are a winning combination. 

The peanut butter cookie is very simple and it's a base recipe I've used before from sallysbakingaddiction.com (<love that blog!). It is the ultimate in soft, chewy, cookies with extreme peanut butter flavor. Mmm!

Now, what do you do when you have a winning cookie recipe? You stuff it with candy, duh! I totally adored the flavor combo and I know you will too. All you have to do is smoosh a rolo in one small piece of cookie dough, take another small piece of cookie dough to cover it, and roll it into a ball shape. Then bake for a few minutes and bada bing bada boom. A sneaky chocolate caramel surprise inside each and every cookie. And, here I am left with no more cookies but thoughts of cookies stuffed with mini Reese's. Oh dear.

 Rolo Stuffed Peanut Butter Cookies


  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/4 cup flour
  • 24-30 rolos (depends on the size of your cookies)                                                                                         


  1. Cream the butter and sugars together on medium speed. Add the egg, peanut butter, and vanilla and mix until combined. 
  2. Mix in the baking soda and flour being careful not to overmix. Chill the dough for 30 minutes so it will be easier to handle. 
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment or prepare with cooking spray. 
  4. Take about 1.5 tbsp of dough and split it in half. Stick a rolo candy in one half and top with the other half of dough. Seal the sides - I did this simply by rolling the dough into a ball shape with the rolo inside. Repeat with the rest of the dough. 
  5. Bake for 8-9 minutes. Allow to cool. 
  6. Enjoy!
