Convenient cake mix and chocolate-covered caramels make these popular cookies very quick to prepare, yet they taste so good when served fresh from the oven. People are surprised to bite into this crisp cookie and find a gooey caramel center. —Melanie Steele, Plano, Texas

"**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.

"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."

"Love this recipe...have made it a bunch of times. However, made some changes because the original version's dough does come out way too sticky. I use only 1 egg and 3 tablespoons of canola oil. Dough needs to be worked well but much easier to work with. Spraying Pam on your hands helps too. Makes 3 dozen cookies."

"<p>After reading the comments here, we have retested this recipe and made some modifications. We took out the water and increased the eggs to two and the oil to 1/2 cup. These changes resulted in much less sticky dough. This recipe here has been corrected. We apologize for any inconvenience. Taste of Home Test kitchen.</p>"

"The flavor was very good, but I found the dough much too sticky to form. I added quite a bit of flour to make it workable. They taste good, but I don't think this recipe is workable as written."
