These Rolo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies are a simple and perfect chocolate chip cookie with a gooey caramel rolo in the and perfect topped with sea salt!
I’ve been celebrating national food holidays with some of our blogging friends all year long – and I have to say, national cookie day (today) might just be my favorite yet! I love cookies! These rolo stuffed chocolate chip cookies are my new favorite way to spice up a traditional chocolate chip cookie.

These cookies are made with my favorite chocolate chip cookie dough as a base. But just like my rolo cake mix cookies I flattened the cookie dough, stuck a rolo on top and rolled the dough around it.
The rolo melts perfectly with the cookie and the gooey caramel middle is pure perfection. I topped my cookies with a little sea salt, because I just love that sweet and salty mix, especially with caramel!
A couple tips I learned along the way in my cookie making process:
Although Guittard milk chocolate chips are my absolute favorite a smaller chocolate chip, like Ghiradelli, Hershey, etc will work much better with these cookies. You want to keep the cookie dough as small as possible, to just wrap around your Rolo so that you have the perfect cookie dough, to chocolate chip to caramel middle ratio – and smaller chocolate chips make that a little easier. (I did use Guittard, but I wish my cookies had been a little smaller, so the caramel could have been in every bite).
To make your chocolate chip cookies extra pretty, stick 3 or 4 chocolate chips on top of each dough ball. I always do! (You can cut your chocolate chip amount by a little when mixing the dough if you want since you’ll be adding more to each cookie on top)
Don’t you just want to bite right into one of these cookies warm from them oven? I know I’m ready to make another batch! And you can make some too —

Do these cookies freeze well?
I haven’t tried freezing them baked, but I’ve frozen the dough and it worked well. The baked cookies should freeze fine too though! Wrap them up tight so they don’t get freezer burnt!
these pictures are fantastic! the gooey caramel is perfect
What a great idea!
