Caramel Filled Chocolate Cookies

These are some of my favorite cookies, I am in the mood for some and couldn't believe that the recipe hadn't been posted yet, so here it is:

 Caramel Filled Chocolate Cookies Ingredients:

1 Cup butter, softened
1 Cup white Sugar
1 Cup brown sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour (May need more, the dough will be sticky and adding more flour helps reduce that sticky-ness and doesn’t seem to “ruin” the cookies)
1 teaspoon baking soda
¾ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
48 chocolate-covered caramel candies (aka rolos, this is one bag)

 Beat butter until creamy, gradually beat in sugars, add eggs and vanilla. Combine flour, soda, and cocoa. Slowly add flour mixture to butter mixture. Cover and chill at least 2 hours (this does not necessarily need to be done, does help some though.) Preheat oven to 375ยบ Make a ball of dough, I use a small ice cream/cookie scoop, and insert an unwrapped rolo into it, I have found a bit of oil on your hands helps this is sticky dough, and roll it around between your palms to cover the candy, and then place on a baking sheet (parchment paper has become a friend to me for making cookies) and bake in the oven for 8 minutes, let cool 3 to 4 more minutes before removing to wire racks.
