Rolo cookies: the anti-recipe
And it's called the anti-recipe because first of all, if you've ever seen me in the kitchen then you know that I'm the last person who's qualified to be dishing out advice on adding a teaspoon of vanilla like so. Did you hear that? That was Tyson in the background yelling, Amen! And second, because these things are like 4 ingredients. Which doesn't qualify them for fancy titles like "recipe".
So let's get on with it shall we?

Oven: 350
1 stick of butter, melted
1 egg
1 box of devil's food cake
1 bag of Rolos

Mix the butter, egg and devils food cake together till you get a dry dough. Then shape the dough around the Rolo until you have a little ball. Stick em on an un-greased cookie sheet and put them in the oven for 7-9 minutes depending on your gooey preferences.

Then eat them for breakfast, lunch, dinner and your mid-morning snack. Also, dream about them, take them on walks and give them pet names.

Yummo! I want one on my mouth. I mean, like right now. I think this calls for a trip to the store. I'm blaming you for the extra el bees {lbs} I'm about to gain! :)

I am so hungry right now that a jar of tums sounds appetizing.

And this post is not helping.

Crystal said...

Delicious!! Anti-recipe haha I love it. I feel like most things I make, dinners included, are anti-recipes...that is they are under 4 ingredients.

Love your blog btw :) I grew up in DC but live in Utah now with my husband and little girl so whenever I see pics of your blog from home I get so homesick! I hope you are enjoying the area!

Maria said...

Oh god, these look so good and now you have me craving them.

I've recently become obsessed with cakebox cookies. They're so easy and always seem to turn out!

Britty said...

Yummy yummy! I love how you annotated your recipe, so entertaining. You and I cook the exact same way; A friend asked me for my broccoli beef recipe when she got engaged and I said... "um, a littla soy, a littla honey, etc". She was frustrated. ;)

Lauren said...

Hahahaa pet names. That made me laugh out loud. These ARE delish.

Haha! Yum!! And in case anyone does NOT know (like ahem*ME*ahem) you can't substitute margarine for butter or the dough will stick to you worse than saran wrap.

Thanks for the recipe!!!

~Anne

Caitlin said...

Yum. Thanks Sydney! I love a good non-recipe recipe.

Elise said...

Okay! Keep posting "recipes"! 4 ingredients?? Anyone can do it!

loandco said...

pintsizedmama.com said...

Posting this might have been a bad idea, I might just have to make those so that I can eat all of them myself. Oh the joys of learning to cook as a wifey...I'm right there with you sister!

Jenessa said...

I posted these on my blog a while ago too, but with oil instead of butter...I think I like the butter idea better! Nonetheless, these cookies are SO delicious and SO addicting. I probably ate a hundred of them. I'm so glad you were able to find the gloriousness that is Rolo Cookies as well! :D

misss_e said...

Amber said...

Oh, I'm a big fan of anti-recipes, I'm the short cut extraordinaire when it comes to my own "recipes", so naturally, I love this! Uh making them this week? Yes!

Miss K said...

Please tell us about the dress you're wearing!

Ashley C. said...

Delish.
Everyone HAS to try Hershey Kiss Cookies. You can google the recipe "Magical Kiss Cookies". It's the same idea- candy inside a blob of chocolate dough. THEY ARE AMAZING!! Check it out! :)

Yuli Conversations said...

your too funny, those look delicious. What are you wearing? beautiful pattern!

Oh dear! Last thing I need is a new sweet, chocolate & caramel friend that I can't get enough of...but I think I can swing it~ thanks for the recipe! ;)

Jenny Leigh said...

Boom Baby! I am so doing this.... like this weekend!!! My homeade cookies are always a little too hard for me. I want to see them brown on top and apparently that means they've kind of over-cooked! So this is fool proof, right?? They're already dark so no need to check for brown tops!
Done! Thanks Sydney

Mmmm! Those look so yummy! Thanks!

Sarah said...

I've made these for my singles ward FHE treats for years, and they love them! They're always gone in a heartbeat (but with 40 YSA's what else are you to expect?) :) Welcome to the Rolo Cookie club ♥

Little Garcon said...

I thought my family was the only one who made cookies out of cake mix in a box!

However our recipe is extra ridiculous with 2 boxes and tons of chocolate chips. It makes enough to serve the small army that most families have around christmas time.

I understand the unrelenting urge to keep coming back for more! I suggest freezing them and then eating them slightly frozen but still chewy and delicious.

Now I need cookies.
