Chocolate Rolo Cookies

Mum let us (M&L) use the kitchen again. We are going to make chocolate Rolo cookies.

Here’s what we need …

8 oz butter
8 oz caster sugar
2 egg yokes
2 tablespoons milk
9 oz plain flour
1 oz coco powder
3 packets of Rolos (which gives you some left over … to test, just to make sure they’re okay)

We weighed the butter to the right amount and put it in a big mixing bowl with caster sugar.

Now we needed to cream the butter and sugar till light and fluffy.We started it slowly and got  faster.

Then we separated the egg yoke from the egg whites  and put the yokes into a bowl.

We beat up the egg yokes a little bit with a fork.

L checked the recipe and we added the milk to the eggs yokes. Then we put them in the big mixing bowl and beat them all up together with the sugar and butter.

Then we sieved the flour and coco powder into the big mixing bowl. We did it without getting too messy.

We mixed everything together and scraped the sides of the bowl down. It turned into a sticky dough.

We used our hands to get the dough into round balls and placed them on the trays. We had to space them out.

Our hands got quite messy. It was so tempting to lick them but we didn’t.

Then we placed the rolos on top. Some of them we pushed down too far and they made a hole in the cookie and we said that we wouldn’t do that again.

We had to keep on looking at the recipe to see what to do. The recipe told us to put the cookies in the oven for 12 minutes (at 180 degrees C).

In the oven they spread out lots and stuck together. We cooled them for 5 minutes on the baking trays and then used a spatula to put them onto wire racks.

L says, “Welcome to Cookieworld!”

M says, “You can tell which ones are mine – they’re the ones that are all crumbled up!”

    Yummy cookies L and M! M, don’t worry about them being crumbled up: a marvellous chef (aka your Mummy) told me once that if baking goes wrong it doesn’t matter too much cos it tastes the same: just add custard or give it a special name like “rolo cookie crumble” 😉

    Great cooking – well done L and M. Thanks for the smashing blog entry and for the amusing method writing, also the photos.
    What a pity they’re all gone, crumbly ones too.

    Your cookies look really scrumptious! It really doesn’t matter that they look ‘crumbly’ , they still taste good, don’t they? And what a lot you’ve learned from making these!

  7. L and M say, “Thank you all for such lovely comments!! The cookies were yummy and they disappeared very quickly – even M’s crumbly ones!”

  8. They look great will be making these today. Love the scales they are fab
