For someone who is on Weight Watcher's all the time, I sure do make a lot of desserts. Hmm, maybe that's my problem. But I bake them for my family and friends. Right?
I found this recipe at www.iheartnaptime.net and had to make it. The surprise is Rolo candy. My youngest son loves Rolo's and even though he lives in San Francisco I made them in honor of him and ate them in honor of him also :-)
(Jonathan, I'll make you some at Thanksgiving. Promise!)
Chocolate Chip Surprise Cookies/Muffins
1 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
1 package (3.4 oz.) vanilla instant pudding mix
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 1/4 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
Rolo Candy (regular or mini)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream together butter and sugar. Add pudding mix and vanilla. Beat in eggs one at a time. Add flour, salt and baking soda. Mix well and stir in the chocolate chips. Spoon cookie dough onto baking sheet and stick a mini rolo in the middle and cover with dough. Bake for 10 - 12 minutes until done.
I made mine in a mini muffin pan and used the regular Rolos. I sprayed the pan with cooking spray. Then I put some cookie dough in the bottom of each muffin tin, stuck a rolo in the middle and covered it with more cookie dough. I baked it for about 15 minutes. Everyone loved them!
