1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
48 Rolo candies, unwrapped
In mixing bowl, beat butter until creamy. Gradually add sugars; beat well. Add eggs and vanilla; beat well. In separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda and cocoa. Gradually add to butter mixture, beating to combine. Cover and chill at least 2 hours.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Divide dough into four parts. (Use one part at a time, leaving others in refrigerator.) Divide one part dough into 12 pieces. Flatten each piece between your hands. Place one Rolo into middle of dough and wrap dough around Rolo. Gently roll in your hands to make a ball. Make sure all of candy is covered with dough. Place on baking sheet, 2 inches apart. Bake for
8 minutes. Let cool 1 minute, then remove to rack to cool completely. Repeat with remaining three parts of dough. When all are cool, sprinkle with powdered sugar. Makes 4 dozen.
