This recipe is AMAZING. It's a lot more simple than I thought it was going to be. I made them for a cookie exchange and ALL 10 asked me for the recipe. My husband (who doesn't eat sweets) and daughter both LOVE them. Will be making them a lot more!

I'm making these for the second time this week! When measuring the salt, make sure you are accurate unless you REALLY like salt. Just the slightest over measurement will make them too salty. Don't turn on your oven until you have taken them out of the freezer and are forming the balls. Use a small ice cream scooper to make your dough balls, insert the rolo until dough squishes out and then fold the dough over the rolo, then put on cookie sheet. This will keep the project pretty mess free.

Thanks All for your tips, what is the best candy to use in the center? I see someone mentioned Milk Duds and Rolos, any other?

Has anyone thought about milk duds? little carmels rounds with chocolate on the outside. They would be easy to insert into cookie balls. I'm going to try them.

I saw no need to freeze these twice. I made the batter, put the bowl in the freezer for 10 minutes then took it out. I then pulled out by hand a patch of dough, put the rolo in the middle and folded the batter around it until it was covered and in the shape of a ball. Then pop em in the oven!

Wow! These are amazing!! I thought they were going to be such a pain but they were super easy and so worth any effort. My friend, husband, and I can't stop eating them. I didn't even put the icing on them and they kick butt. I'm planning on making them probably 2 more times before Christmas! (I'm leaving a tip also)

These cookies are really really great! My husband and two kids loved them. They were still amazing the second day. However, I did not use the sea salt and didn't miss it at all. Also, I had to leave the cookies in a single layer instead of putting them in the cookie jar. They would have stuck together after putting the carmel on top.

Made these tonight as a trial run for a Christmas party next week. Oh dear they are seriously amazing! I used the can of condensed milk in the crockpot method to make the caramel and honestly makes and already fabulous cookie that much more fabulous! Definitely one to go into the holiday cookies recipes from here on out!

I was thinking about making these cookies for a cookie contest at work. But I was wondering about freshness. Our contest is on a Thursday and I'll probably have to make them the Sunday before. Should these be refridgerated, frozen, or stashed in an airtight container?
