Yield: 4 dozen cookies

Ingredients

1 cup butter, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 cup chopped walnuts, divided (optional)
1 Tablespoon granulated sugar
48 chocolate-covered caramel candies, such as Rolos

Directions:

Beat butter or margarine until creamy. Gradually add 1 cup granulated sugar and brown sugar; beat well. Add eggs and vanilla; beat well.

In another bowl, combine flour, baking soda and cocoa. Gradually add to butter mixture, beating well. Stir in 1/2 cup nuts (optional).

Cover and chill at least 2 hours.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F

Combine remaining 1/2 cup nuts with the 1 tablespoon sugar (if using nuts). Divide the dough into 4 equal parts. Work with one part at a time, leaving the rest in the refrigerator. Divide each part into 12 pieces. Quickly press each piece of dough around a chocolate-covered caramel (Rolo). Roll into ball. Dip one side into sugar. (Additional sugar may be needed for dipping if nuts are omitted.)

Place sugar side up 2- inches apart on baking sheets. Bake for 8 minutes. Let cool 1 minute. Remove to wire rack and cool completely.
