In anticipation of all the candy that you will undoubtedly receive tomorrow night, here is a great website with recipes that use candy bars!

Click here for a list of great recipes.

Rolo Cookies

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 cup granulated sugar

1 cup packed brown sugar

1 cup butter, softened

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

2 eggs

1 cup chopped pecans

48 Rolo candies

1 tablespoon granulated sugar

4 ounces white chocolate (optional)

Heat oven to 375 degrees F. In a small bowl, combine flour, cocoa and baking soda. Blend well.In a large bowl, beat 1 cup sugar, brown sugar and butter until light and fluffy. Add vanilla extract and eggs; beat well. Blend in flour mixture. Stir in 1/2 cup of the pecans.

For each cookie, with floured hands, shape about 1 tablespoon dough around 1 Rolo candy, covering it completely. In a small bowl, combine remaining 1/2 cup nuts and 1 tablespoon sugar. Press one side of each ball into pecan mixture. Place nut side up, 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake at 375 degrees F for 7 to 10 minutes or until set and slightly cracked. Remove and cool.

Optional: Melt white chocolate in a small saucepan over medium heat, stirring constantly. Drizzle over top of cookies when melted.

Ummmmm, HELLO this is genius! Rolo cookies...Heaven! I'm now going to be stealing any and all rolo's from my children's buckets tomorrow night! Don't worry, they've never known there was any chocolate in their buckets anyways (because my thighs get to them first!!)
