Homemade cookies are my love language. And I am all about keeping things simple around here, which is why I love cookies that taste homemade, without all the fuss and chill times. Cake Mix Cookies, 10-Minute Sugar Cookies, and these Chocolate Chip Rolo Cookie Bites are some of my very favorites!

Rolo Cookie Bites

As much as I am ok with baking cookies from store-bought dough, there is nothing like a homemade chocolate chip cookie – wouldn’t you agree? They seem to be fluffier, chewier, and have an overall better taste than the pre-made stuff you can buy at the grocery store.

However, every once in a while you discover a way to make that store-bought dough into something amazing, and THIS Rolo Cookie recipe does just that. These Rolo Cookie Bites take store-bought chocolate chip cookie dough and kick them up a notch, simply by adding a rolo candy to the center while they bake. The result is something that tastes more homemade – chewier, fluffier… they are amazing!

How To Make Rolo Cookie Bites

Prep – First, preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Like I mentioned before, I like to use store-bought cookie dough to make this easier. If you prefer a homemade dough, then go ahead and whip that up. If you need a recommendation, here’s a great recipe.

Compile – Take about a teaspoon of cookie dough and place it in each of the ramekins of a mini muffin pan. Gently press a piece of unwrapped Rolo candy into the top of each piece of dough.

Bake – Cook the Rolo cookie bites in the oven for about 12 minutes. Let the cookie bites cool completely before removing them from the pan. Serve and enjoy!
