This recipe is courtesy of my sister. She loves all things dark chocolate or any sweet for that matter, so I knew these were going to be good. She has also raved about them several times over the years and when I read the ingredients I knew why. After receiving the recipe I promptly headed to the store after pre-school drop off to pick up the needed dark chocolate chips and Rollo candies. Yes, these cookies have the amazing Rollo candies hiding inside. Since the cookie batter needs to chill for over an hour it was best for me to whip up the cookie dough before pre-school pick up and have phase two of the cookie assembly involve my little kitchen helper. His first task was to unwrap the candy and place in a separate bowl. I would recommend having one or two extra, as your helper may want to taste test a candy along the way. To complete the cookies it was all about teamwork. I would roll the dough and create a well for the candy, while my toddler would place a candy in the center. His last task was to sprinkle the sea salt on top of the balls of cookie dough. Off to the oven for 13 minutes and done! A perfect Valentine’s Day sweet treat in the making (and summer party, mom’s night out, fall events, or next years cookie swap, you get the idea!) Thank you to my sister for this one!
