Reviews for Chocolaty Caramel Cookies
"**Important Note** This recipe was published in 2003, cake mixers are now no longer as large. Only 1/3 cup of oil is needed using today's smaller cake mixes. This simple modification will result in the perfect chocolaty carmel delight. The easiest way to quickly insert candy- use one inch cookie scoop, before plopping out push candy inside scoop of dough. Excess will push out. Then push excess over bottom of candy. Then release dough onto cookie sheet! As a volunteer field editor with Taste of Home magazine I love cookie recipes that have a delightful surprise inside!"
"I made these for a cookie exchange, and I kept getting texts that they were delicious. I don't eat cookies (why did I go to an exchange, life's a mystery), but I tasted this one and it was good. The kids loved finding the rolo, but I didn't get anywhere near 42 servings!! I got maybe 20. Oh ya I drizzled them with chocolate ganache."
"I found a similar recipe in the S/D subscription with the following changes: 1 egg, 1/4 C water, 3 T canola oil. These changes could make the mix less sticky. I have yet to try them, but added them to my recipe box for the future."
"My grandsons love these cookies. I have made them twice and have found that using Devil's Food cake mix without pudding makes rolling the dough into balls much easier. Using Devil's Food cake mix with pudding, the dough sticks to your hand unless you damped your hands with water. Bottom line--use a cake mix without pudding.js"
"Some changes for less sticky dough. Used 1/4 cup water, 3 tablespoons of oil, and only 1 egg. Work dough well. Spraying Pam on hands also helps."
