Easy Rolo Cookie Bars
These Rolo Cookie Bars have a classic oatmeal chocolate chip cookie taste with an amazing ooey, gooey twist. In all seriousness, these have been some of my favorite cookies to come out of the oven in quite some time! If you’re a cookie person in the slightest, I know you are going to adore these just as much as I have.
Tips For Making Rolo Cookie Bars
- Don’t try and make these into cookies. The caramel melts out everywhere, and it’s pretty disastrous.
- If you eat these warm, they will be just as ooey and gooey as they look in the pictures. However, if you want to cut them up and plate them, no worries! Once they’ve cooled to about room temp, they are very easy to cut for serving or even to package.
- Rolos are the best caramel filled chocolate candies for baking. Don’t try to sub with any other caramel filled chocolate candy, because they don’t hold up as well. In my experience, the caramel bakes out and incorporates with the cookie dough. Which is yummy, but you would miss out on all the pockets full of caramel!

Rolo Cookie Bars Recipe
- 1 cup butter softened
- 1 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 tbsp milk
- 1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 2 1/2 cups old fashioned oats
- 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1 cup Rolo Bites candy already unwrapped
- Optional: 1 cup chopped pecans
Preheat oven to 375ºF.
Prepare a 9x13 baking dish by lining it with parchment paper. If necessary, foil can be used, but it must be sprayed with cooking spray.
Mix together (using a stand mixer or by hand) the butter, brown sugar, and eggs.
Mix in the milk, vanilla, flour, baking soda, salt, and oats.
Stir in the chocolate chips, Rolos, and pecans.
Spread the dough in the prepared baking dish.
Bake for approximately 20-25 minutes.
The edges should be set and golden brown, and the tops of the bars should look mostly "dry."
Allow to cool for at least 10 minutes before cutting.
