In stead of flatting the cookie and rolling it in nuts and sugar,,,, drizzle milk chocolate and white chocolate once cooled......much better presentation.

Yes, I would definitely make this recipe again! Definitely add the 3/4 cup of cocoa to the dry mixture - no need to flatten the cookies - just make sure they are far enough apart (I was able to make 10 on a standard cookie sheet without them running into each other). My husband loves Rolos, and he found the recipe - I made them and they were FANTASTIC - I don't even like caramel all that much but they were so good! I didn't use the nuts because my husband and sons aren't big fans of nutty cookies, but I may make a few with almonds for myself next time - yummy :-)
