MILLION DOLLAR CARAMEL COOKIES

(makes 4 dozen)

1 cup butter, softened

1 cup packed light-brown sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
2 ½ C flour, plus ¼ cup
¾ cup coca
1 tsp baking soda
2 heath candy bars
1 bag Rolo Chewy caramels

Preheat oven to 375. In a medium bowl, beat butter and sugars until fluffy, then add eggs and vanilla and beat well.
In a separate bowl, mix 2 ½ cups flour, cocoa, and baking soda. Add flour mixture to sugar mixture a little bit at a time and blend well. If the dough feels too sticky, sprinkle in a little extra flour. Cover and chill dough in fridge for about 30 minutes.
Chop Heath bars into small pieces. Place in a small bowl and toss with 1 Tbs sugar.
Once dough has chilled, wrap a piece around each caramel, forming a 1-inch ball and covering the candy completely, Dip top of the dough ball into the candy topping and place on parchment-lined baking sheet.
Bake for 7-10 minutes. Cookies will look quite soft, but do not overbake. Cool in pan slightly, then move to a rack or the counter to finish cooling. Store in a covered container.
