Ok, so I really enjoy baking and finding new things to try. I rarely make the same thing more than twice; except for the Oreo Balls… but those are fabulous and kind of my thing so those are the exception.
Anyway, my husband is always complaining that I don’t bake him anything… It’s true, I don’t bake him a whole lot because:
1. He isn’t a huge sweets person, therefore it could be sitting around the house for multiple weeks before he gets to it, and I just end up eating it.
2. He wants plain… Plain brownies, plain cookies, plain cake!!!! Agh, I don’t really do plain. If he wants plain he can grab a box of brownies at the store and add water… (I’m harsh I know).
3. Last time I made something he wanted me to make he said, “This isn’t the way my mom makes it”.
So, can you really blame me for not making him anything very often??
Moving on… I found this little gem on pinterest!!!
Matt loves Rolos and it’s different… perfect compromise!!! I was a little hesitant to try it because I scrolled down to read the comments… A lot of people were complaining that the dough was too runny and it didn’t set well. But since it was literally 4 ingredients how can you really mess that up, so I decided to try it out:)
Thank God I did!!!! Can we say Rolo-iffic, Rolo-tastic? Rolonderful? Get it?? Sorry, I’ve been sick for a week now and my head is still a little foggy
I made a few tiny adjustments based on the reviews and comments but I didn’t change the recipe itself. Here are my suggestions:
**Make sure you do use the 18.25 oz. cake mix, I can see where it would be too runny if you just grabbed any box. I used Pillsbury Moist Supreme Yellow Cake Mix.
**I put mine into an 8×8 to make thicker bars… They would have extremely thin if I would have used a 9×13. But it’s your preference, I’m sure either one would be fine.
**Because I used an 8×8 pan, I only needed about 1/2 the bag of Rolos. I quartered some leftover Rolos (that Matt didn’t eat) and sprinkled them on top and threw it back in the oven for a few min for them to melt. One comment I read stated she used the mini Rolos therefore she didn’t have to unwrap or cut in half…. Genius!!!!
**Variations: use different cake mixes and different candy. Let me tell you I’m notorious for finding recipes and trying out every variation I can think of!!!! I’m really excited to experiment with this one!!!! I’ll let you know what I come up with:)
