These amazingly yummy cookies have a chocolate/caramel surprise in the middle! So easy to make.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 2 cups butter, softened
  • 2 ¾ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 (18.25 ounce) package yellow cake mix
  • 1 (13 ounce) package chocolate covered caramel candies (e.g. Rolo TM)
  • ¼ cup confectioners' sugar for rolling

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. 2 In a large bowl, beat the butter and flour together until soft and smooth. Stir in the cake mix to form a soft dough. Roll dough into 1 inch balls. Press a candy into the center of each ball, covering completely. Place 2 inches apart onto an ungreased cookie sheet.

  1. There may be a mistake in this recipie - if made exactly to instructions it didn't form a dough - I added 3/4 cup water and they came out great!! The kids loved them! Will make these again
  2. I made these cookies for my sister-in-laws holiday party adn she said they were too good to put out for her guests and she hid them in her pantry! I will be making them every year for xmas - they are so easy too.
  3. They were far from terrible butI thought they were too dry & crumbly - others liked them. I probably won't try them again.
  4. Everyone that tried them loved them! Thanks!
  5. this was almost four stars but no. they were good but a little too flaky and a little too greasy. they were alright but i probably wont make them again. my sunday school kids did have fun making them though.
  6. The cookie was a little dry but really tasty. I suggest using Nestle Treasure because the Rolo carmel was too hard. I also rolled the finished cookie in some confectioners' sugar. The dough works great as a roll out cookie too!
  7. YUMMY! We are a sweet eating family and they loved these cookies! This recipe is so easy that I made over a hundred cookies for my class and people were fighting over them! These cookies are so buttery. Instead of plain yellow cake mix I used the golden butter cake mix. You will ENJOY!

  9. This recipe did not work out at all. It is unclear whether you are supposed to make the cake mix and then put it in with the mixture or if you just add the mix without the other ingredients. It did not work out at all.
