I have yet to try this recipe because it’s hard to find Rolos where I live. You see them every now and then. I guess I’ll have to buy out the store when they do get them LOL Judging from the responses from those who have made this cookies, they taste as good as they sound. Can’t wait… I have a very bad “sweet tooth”. :lol:
