Day 1 of my 12 days of cookies: Rolo Stuffed Peanut Butter Cookies. It’s that time of the year!! My 12 days of Cookies has finally begun and I can hardly contain my excitement. Well, mostly because I’m doing this blog post from Cancun right now. It’s kind of hard to have a bad day here.

I came to Cancun yesterday evening and am leaving in a few hours. The weather today couldn’t have been any more beautiful. If you’re following me on instagram, then you know exactly what I’m talking about.

I got to stuff my face in a breakfast buffet, dip my feet into the water, and lay out on the buttery soft sand. Before I have to go get ready again for work, I decided to kick off with some cookies because it’s past the 1st already. Where did the time go?

That’s how much I love you guys. I’m in my room blogging when I could be soaking up my last couple of minutes in paradise.

I made these cookies for a friend’s gift basket and he loved them. My DB never had a Rolo until I made these cookies. Can you believe it? He wasn’t a fan of the Rolo itself, but he ate all the cookie around it.

When you bake the Rolo and eat the cookie straight from the oven, you get one hot, gooey, glorious mess. It’s awesome.

These cookies packaged well and tasted great. If you’re a peanut butter lover, I’d say you better make this right away. Recipe from Sally’s Baking Addiction.
