Create a spookingly delicious Halloween candy with premade sugar cookie dough and chewy Rolo caramels! These Rolo Eye Cookies are a great Halloween cookie.
Recipe type: Dessert
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and lightly spray a cookie sheet with vegetable spray.
  2. Place sprinkles and colored sugar crystals in individual bowls; set aside. Pull apart the cookie dough from the sheet and roll each ball into a bowl of sprinkles or sugar crystals. Place each sugar-covered cookie ball onto the prepared cookie sheet. Be sure to space cookies at least 2 inches apart.
  3. Bake cookies at 350 degrees for 11-14 minutes or until golden brown.
  4. Carefully remove the cookie sheet from the oven and transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool.
  5. While the cookies are still warm, place a Rolo Candy piece in the middle of each cookie. Next, gently press the candy eye into the middle of the Rolo piece.

And if your kids want to help in the kitchen, this is the perfect recipe for that! Little hands can help roll the dough in the sprinkles and top with a Rolo. Just make sure the Rolo’s actually end up on the cookie instead of in little mouths.
